Serena makes Ohio final

CINCINNATI, Ohio - Serena Williams moved within one win of a second pre-US Open hardcourt title on Saturday, reaching the Cincinnati Masters final with a 2-6 6-2 6-4 victory over Caroline Wozniacki.

The world No.1 American, who claimed her 61st career title at Stanford two weeks ago, will face off on Sunday against either fifth-seeded Maria Sharapova or ninth-seeded Ana Ivanovic.

Williams, playing a third tournament in a row for the first time since late 2007, improved her 2014 match record to 37-6.

The 32-year-old said that she needed a set to find her game after a slow start in a match which featured 15 breaks of serve, seven of them in the final set.

"I was feeling tired today, so in the second set I just told myself to hit big serves," said Williams, who followed up her win in Stanford by reaching the semi-finals last week at Montreal, where she lost to her sister Venus.

"I didn't expect to do this well over the summer. I knew I needed matches so I entered three tournaments. But I'm still here."
