Dubai, United Arab Emirates (SportsNetwork.com) - Two-time champion Venus Williams was an upset semifinal winner Friday at the $2 million Dubai Tennis Championships.

The 2009 and 2010 Dubai titlist waltzed past eighth-seeded fellow former world No. 1 and 2011 Dubai champ Caroline Wozniacki 6-3, 6-2 on the hardcourts at Dubai Tennis Stadium.

Williams is a perfect 5-0 lifetime against Wozniacki and has never dropped a set against the Danish star.

The wild card Williams' opponent in Saturday's lucrative final will be her top-ranked younger sister Serena or France's Alize Cornet.

The 33-year-old Venus is seeking the 45th title of her career and her first one since prevailing in a small event in Luxembourg in 2012.
