    SerenaDespite her struggles in the three previous Grand Slams of 2014, Serena Williams remains the Queen of Queens and the U.S. Open is hers to lose.

    The No. 1 seed and two-time defending champion will take a 19-match winning streak in Flushing Meadows into Friday’s semifinal meeting with No. 17 Ekaterina Makarova of Russia.

    Fan favorite Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark, the highest remaining seed after Williams at No. 10, meets unseeded Peng Shuai of China in the other semifinal. Wozniacki and Peng begin at 1:45 p.m. with Williams-Makarova to follow.

    “For me it’s just about every day is a new day,” Williams said after dispatching Flavia Pennetta, 6-3, 6-2, Wednesday night in the quarterfinals. “You never know. Especially for me this year, you never know what can happen. I take everything very seriously as it comes.”
