Second seed Serena Williams lost just two games against seed No.22 Daniela Hantuchova to advance to the quarterfinals of the 2009 US Open.
The Slovakian world No.24 was a good competitor until 2-2 in the first set, but since then, before you knew it, the American defending US Open champion won the match by winning all the following games.
Nevertheless, Hantuchova has made her best US Open run since a quarterfinal finish as a teenager in 2002.
Serena’s next opponent will be the winner of the Flavia Pennetta vs. Vera Zvonareva match.
