Memphis, Buenos Aires, Marseille and Dubai Results

Serena Williams may have 3 more grand slams than her sister, but one thing Venus can brag about that her sister can't, is their head to head record, which the older Williams took a lead in on Friday in Dubai. It was their 19th meeting, and Venus Williams won in a third set tiebreak. The Williams match was the more popular match, but in the other semifinal, Virginie Razzano kept on rolling, and defeated Kaia Kanepi in straight sets to set up a match with Williams in the finals. In Buenos Aires, Tommy Robredo, David Nalbandian, Jose Acasuso and Oscar Hernandez all won to round out the semifinals. Acasuso and Robredo will meet in their 3rd straight ATP semifinal. In Memphis, Dudi Sela and Radek Stepnaek advanced to the semifinals, while Andy Roddick's quarterfinal match and Lleyton Hewitt's quarterfinal match are slated for late tonight.
