Fresh off gold medal performances at the 2012 London Summer Olympics, No. 2 seed Serena Williams was defeated in her quarterfinal match against fifth-seeded Angelique Kerber, but sister Venus Williams advanced and will square off against No. 9 seed Na Li at 7 p.m. ET. The other women's semifinal will pit Kerber against Petra Kvitova.
