Williams recovers from a slow start to beat Flavia Penneta and make it to the semi-finals with a 6-3 6-2 game. Williams has not lost more than three games in any set the tournament.
I felt she was playing really well, I don’t feel I was doing too much wrong (in the first three games). I just said to myself that if she keeps it up then she absolutely deserves the win and I just tried to do a little better. I had a lot of fun today, I really enjoyed it and I’m so happy to have won.
