American veteran Venus Williams kept alive her dreams of winning the WTA Finals and making a shock return to world No. 1 when she knocked out second-ranked Garbine Muguruza in straight sets Thursday. Williams, 37, defeated Muguruza 7-5, 6-4 in one hour and 41 minutes to become the second semifinalist out of White Group behind world No. 3 Karolina Pliskova, who finished top.It was a tame end for Muguruza, the WTA player of the year who demolished Williams in this year's Wimbledon final, but who faded in Singapore after a strong start.With both players needing to win to progress, they came out looking sharp but they also struggled to hold serve and Williams broke Muguruza five times to propel herself to eventual victory.
