Serena Williams Routs Venus At Family Circle Cup

CHARLESTON, South Carolina — Serena Williams routed Venus Williams 6-1, 6-2 at the Family Circle Cup on Saturday, the most one-sided match in the sisters’ long rivalry.

Serena Williams won her 14th straight match at the Family Circle. She will play for her second straight tournament title Sunday against the winner of the other semifinal between Jelena Jankovic and Stefanie Voegele later in the day.

This was the first time since 2009 that the Williams sisters were playing each other in a tournament. Serena has won five straight in their series and leads 14-10. Serena said it was encouraging to see her sister reach the semifinals of the WTA tournament after her struggles of the past 18 months dealing with the autoimmune disease Sjogren’s syndrome.

“We’ve definitely been through a lot since our last match. But yeah, we all come together at the end and we just try to love each other like we always do,” Serena said.
