Serena also advances


No. 4 Serena Williams advanced to the U.S. Open final with a 6-3, 6-2 win over No. 6 Dinara Safina today.
She will face No. 2 Jelena Jankovic in the final tomorrow night at 7 p.m., weather permitting. The winner of that match will earn the No. 1 ranking.
Safina broke Williams in the first game but soon struggled with the windy conditions, hitting 41 unforced errors to Williams’ 21.
Williams improved to 12-2 in Grand Slam semifinals. She advanced to the U.S. Open final for the first time since 2002, when she won her second title in Flushing Meadows.
