Serena had to stop early in the previous three Grand Slam tournaments this year, with defeats in the fourth round of the Australian Open, the second round of the French Open and the third round of Wimbledon.

“The feeling inside me right now is very special, for the first time this year I can return to the semi-finals of a Grand Slam.

Pennetta had lost in all five previous encounters.

Pennetta tried to turn the situation around in the second set, but she only had enough strength to continue until the game score was 2-2 before losing four games in a row and having to hang up her racket against the defending champion with a score of 2-6.
