Serena Williams has been cruising in this week’s Family Circle Cup, and she seems to be headed for the title. Following Saturday’s semi-finals only Lucie Safarova, a player against whom Serena holds a 4-0 head to head record, stands in her way.
Serena would seem to have momentum on her side right now. On Saturday she absolutely destroyed Samantha Stosur, clinching a 6-1, 6-1 victory in less than an hour. The US Open champion revealed after the match that she didn’t feel she was playing particularly badly. Serena on the other hand, who made 29 winners, stated after the match that her performance ranked in her all-time top five.
Safarova isn’t expected to be able to match up to the former world No. 1 on Sunday, though she was also in outstanding form in the semi-finals. She needed a few minutes more than Serena, but will be delighted about the manner in which she managed to wrap up a 6-0, 6-0 success against Polona Hercog.
Serena should have the upper hand in the final here, but after seeing Safarova play so well against Hercog, it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see the Czech underdog give the world No. 10 a serious test.
