Williams fought back to Defeat Kuznetsova.
Williams fought back to Defeat Kuznetsova.

Serena Williams returned to the French Open semi-final after four consecutive losses at the quarter-final stage of the same championship since 2003.

It wasn’t a walk in the park for the superstar tennis player as former champion Svetlana Kuznetsova pushed her all the way in the second set, on her way to a 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 triumph in the Court Suzzane Lenglen.

Williams dropped just a solitary game in the opening set, yet Kuznetsova, the 2009 champion, rallied thereafter and, after leveling the contest, raced into a 2-0 lead in the deciding set.

But the 2002 French Open champion Williams reeled off five consecutive games before eventually claiming victory with a forehand winner.

The top seed will be up against Italian Sara Errani in the semi-final following the fifth seed victory of Poland’s Agnieszka Radwanska.

Last year’s Roland Garros finalist Errani continued her fine form at the French Open with a scrappy 6-4, 7-6 (8-6) victory over 4th seed Radwanska.

The second set of the contest alone featured eight breaks of serve as the 26-year-old Italian recorded her first ever victory over a top-five player which came on her 81st match.
