Serena Williams

New York, Sep 4 (IANS) World No.1 Serena Williams of the United States defeated Johanna Larsson of Sweden 6-2, 6-1 in the US Open third round here on Saturday, one step closer to winning the women’s singles title for the seventh time at Flushing Meadows.

“It was a really good match for me because she played a different kind of match. It was really good for me to have a different type of rhythm and move the ball around,” Xinhua news agency quoted Williams as saying of playing against Larsson.

Williams is now 3-0 all-time against Larsson and has yet to drop a set at this year’s final Grand Slam. She also won her 307th match in a Grand Slam event to pass Martina Navratilova for the most ever in the Open era.

“That’s pretty awesome. What better place to do it than here where it first started,” Williams said of breaking Navratilova’s record.
