CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Serena Williams routed Venus Williams 6-1, 6-2 at the Family Circle Cup on Saturday, the most one-sided match in the sisters' long rivalry.

Serena Williams won her 14th straight match at the Family Circle. She will play for her second straight tournament title Sunday against the winner of the other semifinal between Jelena Jankovic and Stefanie Voegele later in the day.

This was the first time since 2009 that the Williams sisters were playing each other in a tournament. Serena has won five straight in their series and leads 14-10.

Serena, ranked No. 1, surged to a 4-0 lead and won the first set in 22 minutes. Venus Williams, who withdrew from her last event because of back problems, picked up her game a bit in the second set but it was hardly enough.
