World No. 1 Serena Williams has opted against defending the WTA Finals title and decided to end her season early following a roller coaster campaign littered with pains and prizes, the American said Thursday. The 34-year-old's last match was her shock loss to Italy's Roberta Vinci in the semifinals of the U.S. Open last month which ended her bid to become the first women in 27 years to win all four grand slam titles in the same season.After winning the Australian and French Open titles, Williams became the earliest ever qualifier for the eight-woman end-of-season finals when she won her third round match at Wimbledon in July.
