Serena Williams reveals that she has never been fully fit in her career.

Former world number one Serena Williams believes that she has never been 100% physically fit.

The 29-year-old American continued her return from a foot injury by advancing to the semi-finals of the Rogers Cup with a 4-6 6-3 6-2 victory over Lucie Safarova.

After the match, the 13-times Grand Slam champion told reporters that she is working hard to improve her fitness ahead of the hard court season.

"I've been making a real effort to get fit and it is making a difference," said Williams.

"I just decided that if I could be fit, maybe that would bring a new level to my game.

"I have never been really fit. I'm still not super fit because I always have cream sodas at night!"

Williams will now face Victoria Azarenka for a place in the final.
