Serena Williams moved a step closer to salvaging her season with a 4-6, 7-6 (2), 6-4 semifinal victory over Amelie Mauresmo in the WTA Championships on Sunday. Williams, ranked eighth and without a Grand Slam title this season for the first time since 2001, advanced to Monday night's final against either Wimbledon champion Maria Sharapova or French Open winner Anastasia Myskina.
