Clijsters Through to the Semis

That was fast! With the stadium only about half filled, Kim Clijsters just won a remarkably easy quarterfinal match against Li Na, 6-2, 6-4. This means that if Serena Williams wins tonight–and no one expects her to have a problem with Flavia Pennetta–we’ve got an unbelievable semifinal in the works.

After her win, Clijsters said that if she faces Serena she’s looking forward to what she anticipates will be an electric atmosphere and a largely pro-Serena crowd. If the crowd sentiment during her match against Venus was any indication, she’s in for a pleasant surprise.
