Serena To Face Radwanska In Final
Sixth seed Williams knocked off Belarussian second seed Victoria Azarenka 6-3, 7-6 (8-6), while Radwanska progressed with 6-3, 6-4 victory over Germany’s Angelique Kerber.
Williams, who nailed a record 24 aces, said: “The older I get, the better I serve and the more — not that I rely on it — the more I like to hit aces.
“I don’t know how it got better. I really don’t know. It’s not like I go home and I work on baskets and baskets of serves. Maybe it’s a natural shot for me.”
Meanwhile, Radwanska told reporters: “I played Serena a couple of times, but it was long time ago. She’s a very tough opponent and hitting the ball very well.
“Of course she’s playing great tennis on the grass. I don’t really have anything to lose.”
