The red-hot Serena crushed 2012 runner-up Sara Errani 6-0, 6-1 in the other semifinals match, setting up a No. 1 vs. No. 2 final's match-up. For the year Serena has an overall 36-3 match record thus far, 22-0 on clay and has won 5 tournaments in a row. She is 3-0 against Sharapova, which includes victories in the finals in Miami and Madrid.

There is no doubt Sharapova will have her hands full against the dominant Serena. Will the final at Roland Garros be the place where she breaks her losing streak against the almost-unbeatable American? We shall see....
