MONTREAL (AFP) - Serena and Venus Williams will clash in the semi-finals of the Montreal WTA tournament after the American sisters battled through tough three-setters in the quarter-finals on Friday.

World number one Serena outlasted Caroline Wozniacki to clinch a 4-6, 7-5, 7-5 victory while Venus also came from a set down to beat Spanish 14th seed Carla Suarez Navarro, the third round conqueror of Maria Sharapova, 4-6, 6-2, 6-3.

Serena will take a 14-10 career lead over her older sister into Saturday's match.

The 32-year-old has won their last five meetings while Venus's most recent win was in Dubai in 2009.
