Singapore (SportsNetwork.com) - Serena Williams and Simona Halep will battle for the title at the season-ending WTA Finals after both won semifinal matches on Saturday. The two met earlier this week in round-robin play, and the 6-0, 6-2 Halep rout in 65 minutes equaled the worst loss of Williams career. Williams will now get the chance to avenge that defeat and win a third straight title at the season-ending event. She advanced Saturday with a thrilling 2-6, 6-3, 7-6 (8-6) victory over good friend Caroline Wozniacki in the first semifinal. Halep then rolled to a 6-2, 6-2 pounding of Agnieszka Radwanska in the second semi. Wozniacki had lost three previous matches to Williams this year and took the first set comfortably on Saturday, but the American star bounced back and won the second before the Dane grabbed the lead in the third with a break and served for the match at 5-4. Williams, though, broke serve and was on the cusp of winning in the 12th game with a break point, but Wozniackis volley after a lengthy rally saved it. The eventual tiebreaker produced even more heroics after Wozniacki opened a 4-1 lead. Williams next shot hit the tape and fell over, starting a run of five straight points. Facing two match points against, Wozniacki saved both. Williams then followed with an ace and converted the next point with a forehand return that Wozniacki could not handle to win the match. Caroline played a great match, it was really difficult today and I felt really bad because shes so amazing and so nice and in this tournament she really deserved to win, said Williams in an on-court interview after the match. So just congrats to her and thank you for playing so well and making it such a great match. Williams, who clinched the year-end No. 1 ranking on Friday, improved to 10-1 lifetime against Wozniacki, who went 3-0 in group play this week. Williams other three wins against Wozniacki this year came in the Montreal quarterfinals, the Cincinnati semifinals and most recently in the U.S. Open final. Played my heart out today! Wozniacki wrote on Twitter. Disappointing to lose such a close and tough battle but thank you Singapore for the support! Congrats to Serena! There was no drama in the second semifinal. Halep won five straight games during the first set and captured the first three of the second. She blasted 26 winners and Radwanska managed to win just four points against Haleps first serve during the 67-minute match. Im very excited to be in the finals, said Halep. I didnt expect this result here and Ive had to work very hard to play my best tennis here this week. Now, the Romanian will have the daunting task of trying to beat Williams for the second time in the same week. The group win was her first victory in four tries against the 18-time Grand Slam champion. Its a new day a new match so who knows whats going to happen there, added Halep. I know shell be more focused and I just want to enjoy the final. Halep won titles in Doha and Bucharest earlier this year. She is 8-5 all-time in finals, including 2-2 this year. Both losses came against Maria Sharapova -- first in Madrid and then at the French Open. Williams will be gunning for her 64th career title and fifth at this event. In addition to winning the last two WTA Finals titles, she also claimed the crown in 2009 and 2001, while finishing as the runner-up in 2002 and 2004. Buy Nike Air Max 270 Canada

Terrance Broadway threw for 227 yards and Hunter Stover kicked three field goals as the Ragin Cajuns won an unprecedented fourth straight New Orleans Bowl with a 16-3 triumph over Nevada.WASHINGTON -- Bradley Beal scored 26 points, and the Washington Wizards moved a step closer to claiming the No. 6 seed in the Eastern Conference on Saturday night with a 104-91 win over the Milwaukee Bucks, whose loss guaranteed they will finish with at least a tie for the worst record in the NBA. John Wall added 15 points and eight assists for the Wizards, who also clinched the franchises first winning record since 2008 -- which was also the last time they made the playoffs. Washington leads the seventh-place Charlotte Bobcats, who beat the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday, by one game with two to play. The Bobcats hold the tiebreaker if Washington and Charlotte finish tied. Both teams are hoping to finish higher than seventh in order to avoid a first-round series against Miami or Indiana. Khris Middleton and Ramon Sessions scored 20 points apiece to lead the Bucks, who trail the 76ers by two games with two to play at the bottom of the league. The Bucks also failed in their latest chance to have their first winning streak of the season. They had won Friday night after losing six in a row. Injuries and a suspension to Larry Sanders had already thinned Larry Drews bench, and on Saturday the Bucks coach was down to a rotation of eight players after Brandon Knight was a late scratch with a sore right hip. The Wizards, meanwhile, played without Nene, who was resting on a back half of a back-to-back, having recently returned from sprained left knee. His fill-in, Trevor Booker, had another solid game, scoring 11 points on 5-for-7 shooting. Beal has been streakky of late, both good and bad.dddddddddddd He was 12 for 22 from the field Saturday night, but just 2 for 7 from 3-point range. He has made only five of 28 3-pointers in his last five games. Trevor Ariza, whose shot has suffered while he battled the flu for more than a week, looked a bit more refreshed as he went 5 for 7 from the field and scored 13 points for Washington. Marcin Gortat added 13 points and 13 rebounds. The Bucks and Wizards had gone to overtime in two of their three previous meetings this season, and this one stayed tight into the third quarter. Milwaukee stayed close by taking advantage of the offensive boards, while Washington had all the space in the world to work the baseline and drive to the paint. The Wizards never trailed in the first half, but their lead never reached double digits. The Bucks took their only lead of the game on Zaza Pachulias layup early in the third quarter, but a three-point play from Booker, a dunk from Gortat and a 3-pointer from Martell Webster -- along with six Milwaukee turnovers in eight minutes -- help put Washington ahead 87-74 headed into the fourth. NOTES: The Bucks shot exactly 50 per cent (10 for 20, 8 for 16, 8 for 16) in each of the first three quarters. ... The Wizards made 8 of 22 3-pointers, a modest improvement after going just 6 for 50 from in their previous three games. ...
