American tennis player Serena Williams on Tuesday registered a comfortable win over  Romania's Simona Halep to sail into semi-finals of the ongoing Australian Open.

The 39-year-old Serena defeated Romania's Simona Halep 6-3, 6-3 in the quarter-finals at the Rod Laver Arena and as a result, she has her dream intact of registering her 24th Grand Slam win. Talking about the game, Serena did not give Halep any chance and as a result, the American star won the first set 6-3. Serena hit 14 winners to win the opening set. In the second set, Halep gained a 3-1 lead, but Serena managed to come back and won the match.

Serena needs one more major win to equal Margaret Court's record Grand Slam tally. She has not added to her Grand Slam tally since beating her sister Venus in the Australian Open final in 2017.
