U.S. Open 2012 Update: Serena Williams, Victoria Azarenka Win Semifinal Matches

Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka will meet for the 2012 U.S. Open Championship after both women won their semifinal matches at Arthur Ashe Stadium on Friday. Both will be trying to earn their second Grand Slam titles of the year.

Azarenka had to come back to defeat No. 3 Maria Sharapova after falling in the first set. She was able to win the match on Sharapova's serve in the third after breaking her at 5-4. Sharapova played a sloppy match with 42 unforced errors.

Williams had much less of a struggle as she defeated Italy's Sara Errani in straight sets, losing just three games in the match. Williams was dominant on her serve, tallying nine aces and winning 92% of her first-serve points.

Americans Bob and Mike Bryan took home the U.S. Open title in men's doubles on Friday when they defeated Leander Paes and Radek Stepanek in straight sets.
