Near the end of her career, Mary Pierce has regained the promise of her youth. Pierce's resurgence continued Wednesday as she advanced to her first U.S. Open semifinals with a commanding 6-4, 6-1 win over friend and fellow Frenchwoman Amelie Mauresmo. She'll play either Lindsay Davenport or sixth-seeded Elena Dementieva on Friday.
