NEW YORK (AP) - Serena Williams reeled off the last eight games and reached the U.S. Open’s fourth round with a 6-4, 6-0 victory Saturday over 42nd-ranked Ekaterina Makarova of Russia, who upset the American at the Australian Open in January.
The fourth-seeded Williams hit eight aces and won 32 of the 40 points she served.
This time, though, Williams built a 31-10 edge in winners and moved a step closer to a fourth U.S. Open title.
