Zvonareva storms through to WTA final

Zvonareva storms through to WTA final
Russian tennis player Vera Zvonareva is through to the final of the Sony Ericsson Championships, the last tournament of the season, after a semi-final win over compatriot Elena Dementieva in Doha.

The best of three sets decided the winner. The first set ended with a tie-break going the way of 8th seed Zvonareva. Dementieva, however, fought back against Zvonareva’s serve in the second set, wrapping that up 6-3. Zvonareva responded appropriately, taking the final set 6-3 to win the match.

She will play Venus Williams, who defeated 1st seed Jelena Jankovic 6:2, 2:6, 6:3 to reach the Sunday's final.
