Amelie Mauresmo outlasted Mary Pierce 5-7, 7-6 (3), 6-4 in a marathon baseline slugfest to win the WTA Championships on Sunday for the biggest title of her career. Mauresmo double-faulted to trail love-40 in the final game, but rallied on five consecutive errors by Pierce in the first all-French final of the championships.
