(Newser) – Venus and Serena Williams are one round away from meeting in another Wimbledon final. Five-time champion Venus overpowered Agnieszka Radwanska 6-1, 6-2 today, and two-time winner Serena followed her into the semifinals with a 6-2, 6-3 win over Victoria Azarenka. No. 3-seeded Venus will next face top-ranked Dinara Safina; No. 2 Serena will face No. 4 Elena Dementieva for a chance to take her elder sister's crown.

It's the first time since 2006 that all four top-seeded women reached the semifinals at a Grand Slam tournament. The Williams sisters overwhelmed their opponents today with breathtaking displays of power tennis, showing why they have dominated on the grass of the All England Club for most of the past decade. “Do I feel invincible?” Venus said. “I'd like to say yes, but I really do work at it.” (Read more Venus Williams stories.)
