Defending champion Serena Williams has won her way through the final of the 2016 Australian Open thanks to a dominant 6-0, 6-4 win over No.4 seed Agnieska Radwanska.

Williams raced through the first set in just 20 minutes, hitting 18 winners as she played a near flawless set.

Williams broke Radwanska early in the second, but the Pole didn't give up without a fight, battling hard to break back and get on level terms at 4-4. However, Williams' power was eventually too much for Radwanska, winning the next two games to advance to a seventh Australian Open final with 24 winners and eight aces in the second set.

Williams has won the Australian Open six times and has never lost a final at Melbourne Park.

She will face either Johanna Konta or Angelique Kerber in the final.
