Serena slams Kirilenko; Advances to Semifinal



ROME (AP) -- Top-ranked Serena Williams dispatched Maria Kirilenko 6-1, 6-4 Thursday, then waited to see if she will meet sister Venus in the Italian Open semifinals. "I have a really tough opponent next match whether it's Venus or Jelena," Serena said. "Obviously, 'Go V!"' Serena had been out with a left knee injury since winning the Australian Open in January. "My knee is feeling good so far," she said. "I can't believe I'm still in the tournament -- it's weird."

It is so great to see Serena playing again and she is playing so well in Italy. I hope that she wins this tournament, it will really help her get her rhythm. I'm just happy that she is in the semi-finals, especially since it's on clay which is her achilles heel.
