This time, Maria Sharapova handled business neatly — and quickly.
Serena Williams blew past her opponent with a focused fury.
It will be a 1 vs. 2 title match at noon Saturday, when Williams meets Sharapova on Stadium Court for the 14th time in their careers.
World No. 2 Sharapova needed little more than an hour Thursday afternoon to put away Jelena Jankovic 6-2, 6-1 in a Sony Open semifinal and advance to her fifth final on Key Biscayne since 2005.
World No. 1 Williams later blew past Sony defending champion Agnieszka Radwanska 6-0, 6-3 in 1 hour 5 minutes to set up the championship match.
