The final tuneup for the London Olympics will be an All-American affair where Serena Williams overcome Romania’s Sorana Cirstea 6-1,6-2 in the Bank of the West Classic on Saturday night to start the first All-American WTA final on home soil in eight years against lucky loser Coco Vandeweghe.

Williams was quoted as saying, "It's cool. Everybody's always asking about American players. Now we have a great player like Coco who's doing well and she took her second chance to the ultimate degree. I'm really happy for her. I'm glad she's American. I'm so glad she's American. If she goes all the way and wins, I would be really, really happy for her."

The 20-year-old from southern California had never even made a WTA semifinal until she beat Urszula Radwanska of Poland, 6-4, 6-4 a day earlier.
