Wimbledon: Serena annihilates Azarenka!

Wow! Serena truly stepped it up in her quarterfinal match. Serena played some awesome and near flawless tennis in her demolition of Victoria Azarenka 6-2, 6-3. Serena had only one unforced error in the 1st set. She swept through the first set against the eighth-ranked Azarenka in 26 minutes. After being broken to go down 3-2 in the second, she won four straight games and held serve at love to finish the match in commanding fashion. Serena had nine aces and 26 winners, with only seven unforced errors.

Only once in the last nine years has there been a Wimbledon women's final that didn't feature at least one of the Williams sisters. The sisters were the only two Grand Slam winners in the women's quarterfinals — Serena has 10 major titles and Venus seven. The sisters have met in three Wimbledon finals, including last year. Serena won two of the three, in 2002 and '03, with Venus winning in 2008. Serena will face Elena Dementieva in Thursday's semifinal match.
