Serena rolls into semi-finals at US Open

Serena Williams of the United States returns a shot against Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.

Serena Williams struggled with her serve in the first set before finding the range to score a 7-5 6-1 victory over Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia to reach the semi-finals of the US Open.

Three-time winner Williams lost serve three times in the opening set as the first six games went against serve before the American got on track, breaking the 17th-seeded Russian in the 12th game to end the opening set.

Williams, who has yet to lose a set, got on a roll after that, losing just three points on serve in the second set and ending the 79-minute match with her sixth ace.

"I had a few errors in the beginning," Williams told the Arthur Ashe Stadium crowd after the quarter-final. "But I'm happy that I'm through and I'm really excited."

The 29-year-old American, playing just her sixth tournament this year after being sidelined by injuries and health concerns, will play either top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark or 10th seed Andrea Petkovic of Germany in the last four.
