American tennis star Serena Williams toppled World No.1 Caroline Wozniacki 6-2, 6-4, to reach the women's final of the US Open in New York.
It was Williams’ first appearance in the US Open semi-finals since 2009, and the 28th seed is now only a win away from her 14th Grand Slam title.
Williams finished with 19 unforced errors and 15 winners in the first set and 34 over all. Wozniacki had five winners and 12 unforced errors.
“For me, it’s amazing. Just thinking about being in the hospital and now I’m beating the No. 1 player, I think it calls for an even bigger reaction,” the New York Times quoted Williams, as saying.
Wozniacki later said that Williams just played “very, very well”.
“You know, she’s in great shape, serving well, returning well, playing her hard strokes. Especially that serve was just a killer,” she said.
