It may have been easier if Carla Suarez Navarro had just stayed home Tuesday night. The result wouldn't have been any different.

Serena Williams blitzed the No. 18 seed and advanced to the US Open semifinal after a dominant performance, winning 6-0 6-0.

Arguably the most dramatic moment of the match came late in the second set when two ballboys collided on the court. Beyond that, there was very little intrigue.

Perhaps Williams -- who, after the match, graciously attributed her opponent's poor play to the difficult conditions -- was seeking some form of patriotic-driven revenge on Suarez Navarro, who routed American Lauren Davis 6-0 6-0 in the first round.

Williams will next face 5th-seeded La Ni, who sweated out a three-set victory over Ekaterina Makarova Tuesday.
