2012 U.S. Open Scores: Serena Williams, Victoria Azarenka Advance To Final

The women's finals of the 2012 U.S. Open are set after Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka won their semifinal matches on Friday. Williams will make her sixth appearance in the final, while Azarenka will be playing in her first. Both women will be trying to capture their second Grand Slam titles of the year.

Williams had little trouble with tenth-seeded Sara Errani of Italy. Serena advanced once again on the strength of her first serve, amassing nine aces and winning 92% of her points on the shot.

Azarenka was facing stiffer competition in third-seeded Maria Sharapova. The match went the distance but Azarenka prevailed after falling in the first set. Sharapova was her own undoing as she tallied 42 unforced errors.

The men's doubles crowned their champion on Friday, as second-seed Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan defeated Leander Paes and Radek Stepanek. The Bryan brothers took the title in straight sets, 6-3 and 6-4.
