SINGAPORE - Serena Williams is in the final of the WTA Finals after beating Caroline Wozniacki in a third-set tiebreaker on Saturday, winning 2-6, 6-3, 7-6 (6) to remain on course for a third-straight title in the season-ending championships.
Wozniacki served for the match at 5-4 in the third set but Williams broke back and prevailed in the tiebreaker on her third match point after trailing 4-2.
