    Racquet-smashing Serena earns shot at title and revenge

    Racquet-smashing Serena Williams fought back from a set down to beat Caroline Wozniacki Saturday and set up a chance for revenge against Simona Halep in the WTA Finals title match. Halep continued her brilliant run in Singapore with a 6-2, 6-2 dismantling of Poland's Agnieszka Radwanska as the Singapore tournament's surprise package made it to the final on debut.

  • OCCASIONAL HOOKUPS KEEP FLAME ALIVE FOR 10 YEARS

    DEAR ABBY: I have known "Justin" for 10 years. I'm very interested in him. I'm sure he knows it, but we have never talked about it. Once in a blue moon we "hook up," and I'm usually the one to set the date up. We're friends on social media, but weeks -- even months -- can pass without our speaking to each other. Justin and I have no mutual friends, so I can't "accidentally" bump into him at gatherings or anything like that. I honestly don't mind hooking up with him because he's the only one I do that with. But it does hurt when I don't hear from him afterward. ...
