BEIJING, Oct. 6 (People's Daily Online) -- Top-ranked Serena Williams powered into the China Open final by trashing 2011 champion Agnieszka Radwanska 6-2, 6-2 here on Saturday.
The top-seeded American, who overcame a back injury during the game, has now won 72 matches in 2013 after she dropped just four games to cruise past the world No. 4 Radwanska at the China Open, improving her record against the Polish to 7-0.
There was an injury scare for Williams, who pulled up clutching her back during the second set before receiving treatment from the trainer. But it did nothing to halt her momentum as she hit 31 winners to end the former China Open champion's journey in Beijing.
The current top-ranked Williams will square off against former world No. 1 Jelena Jankovic in the final showdown of this premier tennis tournament.
Williams has won the French Open, US Open and seven other titles in 2013, losing just four of the 75 matches she has played.
Jankovic, who reached the top of women's world rankings in 2008, has previously met Williams in two finals, including the 2008 US Open, which Williams won in straight sets.
