Melbourne (AP) — Serena Williams saved some family pride Wednesday at
the Australian Open.
After her older sister Venus’ upset loss to China’s Li Na in the previous
match on Rod Laver Arena, four-time champion Serena was down a set and 4-0 in
the second before she rebounded for a 4-6, 7-6 (4), 6-2 win over Victoria Azarenka of Belarus.
Venus Williams couldn’t make it to an expected sister semifinal, losing in a
mistake-filled match featuring in a combined 110 unforced errors against Li.
The result is that Serena will take on Li, who beat Venus 2-6, 7-6 (4), 7-5.
