Dementieva and Safina to meet in Sydney final

Ai Sugiyama kept Dinara Safina busy running and thinking throughout their Medibank International semifinal. Sugiyama looked fresher, almost from the start of the match, but Safina found a way to get through, 6-4, 7-6.

In the other semifinal, a visibly tired Serena Williams--spent from her long and grueling struggle against Caroline Wozniacki in the semifinals--was not able to put up much of a fight against Elena Dementieva, who won the match, 6-3, 6-1. And to show off her improved serve, Dementieva hit three aces in one game.
