Serena Williams defeated sister Venus in three sets at the US Open, and is now within two victories of completing the first Grand Slam since 1988.

Via ABC News:

The youngest Williams sister won 6-2, 1-6, 6-3 in the U.S. Open quarterfinals Tuesday night in front of a celebrity-filled crowd at Arthur Ashe Stadium. It was her 11th three-set victory at a major this year.

Serena improved to 9-5 against her sister in Grand Slam matches.

Venus put up a good fight. This was a match that could have gone either way. In the end both sisters have so much love for each other. They shared a warm embrace at the end of the match, and Serena stated that Venus is the toughest opponent she has ever played.

Next up for Serena Williams is facing the 26th-seeded Roberta Vinci, who reached her first Grand Slam semifinal and has never defeated Williams.
