Melbourne: World No. 1 Serena Williams on Thursday defeated Agnieszka Radwanska in the women's semi-final of the Australian Open in a very expected manner.
In just 64 minutes, Serena crushed Radwanska 6-0, 6-4 at the Rod Laver Arena.
After a terrific 2015, Serena took some time off from the game to get all charged up for the first Grand Slam of the year.
“For me it's just a great thing to be in the final after taking such a long time off,” said the world No.1, who has reached Saturday’s showpiece without dropping a set.
Serena would now be up against Angelique Kerber, who registered a 7-5 6-2 win over Johanna Konta in second women's semi-final.
Kerber, who became the first German to adance to a final at the Australian Open since Anke Huber in 1996, is looking forward to playing against Serena in the summit clash.
“It’s just amazing to play against the No.1 in the final in the first Grand Slam of the year,” she said. “I will try to give everything, I have nothing to lose.”
But the way Serena has dominated her opponents, Kerber will have to play the game of her life to unsettle the six-time Australian Open champion.
