Azarenka def. Pennetta, 6-4, 6-2. 

In a match where service breaks were flying in fast, it was ironic that No. 2 Victoria Azarenka closed out her semifinal match against Flavia Pennetta on serve. 

After getting off to a shaky start in the first set, Azarenka dominated the second set on her way to the U.S. Open Final. 

The No. 2 seed will face the winner of the Serena Williams vs. Li Na match in Sunday's final.
