Serena Williams' final tuneup for the London Olympics will be an All-American affair.
Williams overpowered Romania's Sorana Cirstea 6-1, 6-2 in the Bank of the West Classic on Saturday night to set up the first all-American WTA final on home soil in eight years against lucky loser Coco Vandeweghe.
"It's cool," Williams said. "Everybody's always asking about American players. Now we have a great player like Coco who's doing well and she took her second chance to the ultimate degree. I'm really happy for her. I'm glad she's American. I'm so glad she's American. If she goes all the way and wins (Sunday), I would be really, really happy for her."
Exactly a week after winning her fifth Wimbledon title, Williams cruised to another victory in 60 minutes. The quick work came despite Williams converting only 38 percent of her first serves, calling it "outrageous."
Williams hardly sweated and returned to the court immediately after the match to practice her serve.
She will go for her sec...
