Serena routs Venus en route to final

CHARLESTON, South Carolina - Serena Williams completed a dazzling display of tennis to dominate her opponent and advance to her fourth finals of the year at the Family Circle Cup on Saturday.

Her excitement, though, was over the weeklong play of sister Venus despite big sister’s inability to slow down Serena.

“She’s had a great week,” Serena said.

So has Serena, who won her 14th straight match here with a 6-1, 6-2 victory over Venus Williams - the most one-sided result in the sisters’ long rivalry.

Serena has won five straight in their series and leads 14-10 since they first faced each other at the Australian Open in 1998. Back then, Venus was the more polished player and began a run of five victories over Serena the first six times they played.

Things turned in 2002 with Serena’s 6-2, 6-2 win in Miami, the previous biggest sibling margin before this one.

Since, Serena holds a 13-5 mark and has played some of her best tennis the past year.
