Williams sees off Sharapova again

Serena Williams beat Maria Sharapova for the 18th time in a row to reach the Australian Open semi-finals, BBC reports.

 

The American defending champion, seeded number one and chasing a 22nd Grand Slam title, saw off fifth seed Sharapova 6-4 6-1 at Melbourne Park.

 

It is 12 years since Williams last lost to the Russian, and the world number one moves on to face fourth seed Agnieszka Radwanska in the last four.
