Serena Williams destroyed Qiang Wang to earn her 100th win at the US Open as well as booking her berth in the semi-finals.

The 37-year-old is not just one win behind the all-time record-holder, Chris Evert, but more importantly is just two wins away from a record-equaling 24th Grand Slam title.

“I never thought that I would get to 100,” Williams said in her interview on court after her brutal 6-1, 6-0 win over Wang which required just 44 minutes.

“It didn’t cross my mind I would still be out here. I love what I do. I love coming out with you guys. It’s so special. I never want to let it go.”

“Physically, I’m feeling great. More than anything, I’m just having fun every time I come out here.”

Williams faces fifth-seed Elina Svitolina next, as she bids to win her first US Open title since 2014.

She, though, is expecting a much tougher test than the one Qiang Wang gave her.

“She’s had a great year,” said Williams of Svitolina.

“She made the semis at Wimbledon and I feel she wants to go one step further, so I feel I’ll have to come out and play really well.”
