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."
