U.S. Open 2012 Scores: Serena Williams Rolls Over Sara Errani, Advances To Final

Serena Williams gave a dominant performance in the semi-finals of the 2012 U.S. Open, beating Sara Errani in straight sets, 6-2 and 6-1. Williams now advances to the finals to face Victoria Azarenka.

There wasn't much about the match that didn't go Williams' way. She collected nine aces while allowing Errani none, won 92% of her first serve points, had an average serve speed more than 20mph faster than Errani, hit 38 winners to Errani's six, and won 60 total points vs. Errani's 35. Errani's only advantage was in unforced errors, where she had nine to Serena's 21.

Williams advances to the finals without having dropped a single set in her tournament matches. Should she defeat Azarenka, it would be her fourth U.S. Open title.

The final will take place on Saturday, scheduled to start at 7 p.m. ET.
