Serena sails into Rogers Cup Semis

Second-seeded Serena Williams was an easy quarterfinal winner Friday at the $2 million Rogers Cup, a U.S. Open tune-up. The former world No. 1 Williams waltzed past Czech qualifier Lucie Safarova 6-3, 6-2 in 57 minutes on the hardcourts at Rexall Centre. The powerful American swatted seven aces and never faced a break point en route to victory.

CHECK OUT THESE STATS: Serena served at 71% for the match; won 83% of her 1st serves, 100% of her 2nd serves and was 75% on break point conversion!

The reigning Wimbledon, Australian Open and U.S. Open champion Williams will face fourth-seeded Russian Elena Dementieva in Saturday's semifinals.
