Singapore: Serena Williams said she`d like to see a musical of her life performed on Broadway after she reached the WTA Finals title match following a strong dose of drama and Mariah Carey.

Williams said rather than follow retired Chinese star Li Na, whose story reportedly has film-makers interested, she would prefer "not (to) take it too serious".

"Absolutely. That`s a great idea," she told reporters on Saturday after beating Caroline Wozniacki in the semi-finals, when asked if a musical would be a good medium for her life story.

"On Broadway, too. It should just be on Broadway. I think that`s a better idea. Not take it too serious."

Williams described Friday night as "like a drama on Netflix", when her fate hinged on Simona Halep`s group match against Ana Ivanovic. But Halep won the solitary set Williams needed to go through.

"It`s too stressful for me. That was like a drama on Netflix, and I don`t like or watch dramas," Williams said.

But she later posted selfies of herself with Wozniacki and Carey at the American singer`s gala concert, which took place next door to the tournament venue in Singapore on Friday.

Asked for marks out of 10 for the Singapore event, she said: "My first album I ever got in my life was Mariah Carey, so the fact that they provided tickets to Mariah Carey, I give it an 11."
