The current World number one blitzed through the opening set against an uncomfortable and nervy looking Li Na. Williams managed to complete her victory in just under 90 minutes.

The Chinese sportswoman had a glimpse of hope as she won the second game of the second set and she had also managed to take the lead against Williams. However, Williams proved to be too powerful as she bounced back straight away.

Serena Williams will now face a rematch of the 2012 final against Azarenka as she is in the hunt for a fifth US Open title.
