CHARLESTON, S.C., April 19 (UPI) -- American Serena Williams and Russian Vera Zvonareva moved Saturday into the finals of the $1.34 million Family Circle Cup at Charleston, S.C.

Williams defeated unseeded Alize Cornet of France 7-5, 6-3 while Zvonareva posted a 6-3, 6-7 (2-7), 6-3 victory over fourth-seeded countrywoman Elena Dementieva.
