Serena Williams extends her winning run to nine matches with victory over Lucia Safarova in the Rogers Cup quarter-finals.

Serena Williams has extended her winning run with victory over Lucie Safarova in the Rogers Cup quarter-finals in Toronto.

The 29-year-old booked her place in the semi-finals with a 4-6 6-3 6-2 result over Safarova, marking her ninth consecutive win.

"I could have had a better chance in the first set but I lost some key points," said Williams.

"It was all about maybe one or two points here that would've made a difference and some silly double faults that didn't make sense."

She will now face Victoria Azarenka for a place in the Toronto Cup final.

Williams, ranked 79 in the world, returned to tennis in June after eleven months out of the sport due to injury problems.
