“I definitely want to continue this. I’ve never played consistently at such a high level with low errors like this, and the scary thing is I could have served so much better.”

Serena Williams won the 40th WTA title of her career by crushing Lucie Safarova 6-0 6-1 in the final of the Family Circle Cup in Charleston. The fifth seed overwhelmed the ninth-seeded Czech in just 58 minutes as she continued the impressive form which did for Sam Stosur in an equally one-sided semi-final. The American won the first nine games of the final to move into a 6-0 3-0 lead and, although Safarova did at least get on the board, Williams quickly wrapped up the title. The 13-time major winner, who beat second seed Stosur 6-1 6-1 yesterday, does not want the form she has shown in her last two matches to come to an end.

“I hope I can make it three and four and five and six and more and more and more,” the 30-year-old said on the WTA website. The victory moved Williams up a place in the world rankings to ninth and she feels she can climb further over the grasscourt season. “I do have nothing to defend,” she added: “Wimbledon I didn’t do anything and Eastbourne I won one match, so that doesn’t count. I did pretty well in the summer, but then I dropped off again until this tournament. So I really am like a floating bird. “It’s motivating for me to go home and work harder, because I know Lucie and Sam and everyone else is going to work hard, too. Now they know what to expect even more when they play me. So this is just a battle, and I want to continue to win.”
