Serena Williams was also happier with her performance against Sara Errani in the semis than the error-strewn display she produced against Spanish wildcard Anabel Medina Garrigues in the quarter-finals.

World number one Serena Williams sealed her place in the Madrid Open final for the second consecutive year as she overcame seventh seed Sara Errani 7-5, 6-2 on Saturday.

Williams, who could face a showdown for the number one ranking with Maria Sharapova in the final should the Russian come through her semi-final with Ana Ivanovic, just edged the first set when she broke for the third time in the 12th game.

The American was then far more comfortable in the second as she wasn't broken at all and again sealed the set and the match by breaking the Errani serve to move through after just over 90 minutes.
