Serena Williams will play her sister Venus in the Australian Open final on Saturday.

The 22 Grand Slam winner dismissed her Croatian opponent Mirjana Lucic-Baroni 6-2 6-1 to join her sister who had earlier come from a set down to beat fellow American, CoCo Vandeweghe.

Both sisters last met in Melbourne in 2003 in the finals.

Serena had won the title six times. Venus best showing was playing the final with Serena 14 years ago.

Commenting on the forthcoming game, Serena, who can reclaim the No 1 ranking and set a new Open era record of 23 Majors by winning her seventh Australian Open title, told UK Mirror: “I was really proud of Venus – she is a total inspiration. She is my world and my life.

“I couldn’t be happier and for both of us to be in the final is a dream come true for both of us. She is my toughest opp. No one has beaten me as much as Venus has – she has a pretty good record against me.

“I feel no matter what happens, we have both won. It is great. I look forward to it. Honestly I feel I have already won. A Williams will win this tournament. No matter what happens, I will be happy with the result.”
