Racquet-smashing Serena earns shot at title, revenge
Racquet-smashing Serena Williams fought back from a set down to beat Caroline Wozniacki aturday and set up a chance for revenge against Simona Halep in the WTA Finals title match.

The two-time defending champion started poorly but after her racquet paid the price, she dominated the second set and emerged victorious from a tense deciding tie-breaker to win it 2-6, 6-3, 7-6 (8/6). The 18-time Grand Slam-winner, seeking her third straight victory at the end-of-season championship, will play Halep in Sunday’s final, four days after her humiliating 6-0, 6-2 loss to the Romanian. Halep continued her brilliant run in Singapore with a 6-2, 6-2 dismantling of Poland’s Agnieszka Radwanska as the Singapore tournament’s surprise package made it to the final on debut. The diminutive world number four, backed by a phalanx of noisy Romanian fans, belted 26 winners against just four conceded as she broke Radwanska five times to win in 68 minutes.

Sania-Cara WIN
Sania Mirza and Cara Black showed nerves of steel as they saved three match points in super tie-break against Kveta Peschke and Katarina Srebotnik to cruise into the summit clash of the WTA Finals. The duo won 4-6, 7-5, 11-9.
