NEW YORK (AP) - Serena Williams has joined her sister in the U.S. Open's third round with a dominating victory.

The No. 2-seeded Williams was pretty close to perfect in beating 51st-ranked Melinda Czink of Hungary 6-1, 6-1 in less than an hour Wednesday night.

Williams is seeking her fourth U.S. Open championship and 12th Grand Slam singles title overall. The American is trying to become the first woman to win consecutive titles at Flushing Meadows since her older sister Venus in 2000-01.

The siblings could play each other in the semifinals. Venus Williams won earlier Wednesday, eliminating Bethanie Mattek-Sands of the United States 6-4, 6-2.
