Elena Dementieva shook off a subpar serve that produced 15 double-faults, an aching left thigh and an upset stomach to advance to the semifinals at the U.S. Open with a 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (1) victory Tuesday over Amelie Mauresmo. The loss cost Mauresmo a chance, at least temporarily, to take over the No. 1 spot in the women's rankings.
