Serena Williams beat Severine Bremond 6-2 6-2 in the fourth round of the US Open and set up a quarterfinal clash with sister Venus. Although happy to advance, the sisters are disappointed that they need to face each other so early into the tournament.
“It sucks,” said Serena.
“It sucks that it can’t be the final. At least the semis. It’s so soon. It’s just disappointing to be so soon.”
Serena and Venus Williams dominated the US Open for four years – Serena won the title in 1999 and 2002 and her older sister in 2000 and 2001. They are now the only Grand Slam champions left in the draw, plus, they haven’t dropped a set yet in the tournament.
