LONDON –Tennis superstars Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova will advance to the women’s singles tennis semi-finals in the 2012 London Olympic Games.

Williams, from the USA, edged out Denmark’s Caroline Wozniacki 6-0 6-3. She will face Belarusian Victoria Azarenka in the semi-finals – a match that may be tougher than she had against the Danish.

The American smasher has another chance to win gold medal with her sister Venus, as they trounced Italians Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci in the women’s doubles quarterfinals.  The sisters defeated the French Open champions 6-1 6-1.

Her future singles opponent Azarenka had to deal with Germany’s Angelique Kerber, winning 6-4 7-5.

Russia’s Sharapova won against Belgium’s Kin Clijsters in a 6-2 7-5 thriller. The Belgian rallied through the second set but failed when the Russian grabbed the lead.

Clijsters expressed her satisfaction with the results. She acknowledged that Sharapova is the better player in the grass court.

Happy with the result of the match, Sharapova noted that Clijsters is an experienced opponent and that she had to do better than she did in her previous matches. She said that she had to increase her focus, as she really wanted to win.

With her next opponent being compatriot Maria Kirilenko, Russia is now set to have a silver medal either way.

Kirilenko got past through the quarterfinals by beating ex-Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova. She beat the Czech in a remarkable 7-6 (7/3) 6-3 match. Also starring in the women’s doubles with partner Nadia Petrova, she will get to have another gold medal opportunity against USA’s Williams sisters.
