Rome:

Top seed Serena Williams booked her place in the semi-finals of the WTA Rome Open on Friday after a comfortable 6-2, 6-0 win over Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro.

Williams took just over 56 minutes on Central Court to brush aside the Spaniard, who offered little in reply to the American's all-round more powerful game.

The world number one, who will claim her 51st WTA title if she triumphs this weekend, will meet the winner of the quarter-final between Jelena Jankovic and Simona Halep.

Williams earned her 49th career singles title, and third of the year, by beating former world number one Jelena Jankovic in the final of the Family Circle Cup last month.
