beating Missouri is an essential step. The Gamecocks Antworten

LONDON -- Serena Williams is leaving Wimbledon with two trophies, teaming with her older sister?Venus?to win the womens doubles?final just hours after collecting the singles title Saturday.The American siblings won their sixth doubles championship at the All England Club and 14th as a pair at all Grand Slam tournaments by beating fifth-seeded Timea Babos of Hungary and Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan 6-3, 6-4.Earlier Saturday, also on Centre Court, Serena won her 22nd Grand Slam singles title with a straight-set victory over Angelique Kerber in that final. It was the fourth time that Serena won both titles at Wimbledon in the same year; Martina Navratilova pulled off the feat five times in the Open era.I had just enough time to change and get my ankles retaped, Serena said about going from one match to the other. But there was so much adrenaline, I didnt want to cool down too much.Venus sat in the guest box during the singles final.Watching Serena earlier was so amazing, and I was so into that. And then you have to reset yourself and say, OK, weve got to play a match and were going to have to try to win, Venus said during a joint interview with the BBC after the doubles. So she brought the energy from Game 1 and that really brought me up, too.The Williams sisters also won doubles titles at Wimbledon in 2000, 2002, 2008, 2009 and 2012. Each time, one or the other also won the singles championship, with Serena doing it in 2002, 2009 and 2012 in addition to this year.Theyre now 14-0 in major doubles finals. They were unseeded this time because they play doubles so infrequently, and their most recent Grand Slam title before Saturday had come four years ago at the All England Club. Until playing at the French Open in May, they hadnt even entered a doubles draw at any major tournament since 2014.The 14 Grand Slam titles are tied for second in the Open era with Gigi Fernandez and Natasha Zvereva. Navratilova and Pam Shriver hold the Open era record with 20.The Williams sisters are planning to compete in doubles, in addition to singles, at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics next month. They already have won three gold medals in doubles, at the 2000, 2008 and 2012 Summer Games.When they were asked during the BBC interview which one is in charge of their doubles team, Serena immediately pointed toward Venus and said with a laugh, Shes definitely the boss.Said Venus: Well, Im the older sister, so it kind of falls on me. But [there are] different times on the court that we both take over. So whatever the team needs, it kind of happens organically. Thats the best kind of team.Shvedova, who lost to Venus in the singles quarterfinals this week, was trying to win her third Grand Slam doubles title, after teaming with Vania King to win Wimbledon and the US Open in 2010. Babos has never won a major doubles trophy; she was the runner-up with Kristina Mladenovic at Wimbledon in 2014.The Associated Press contributed to this report. Adidas Gazelle Homme Pas Cher .

And although English league clubs are unlikely to splash cash in January, Arsenal and Chelsea could be tempted to strengthen their squads with new strikers. COLUMBIA, S.C. -- South Carolinas once-sluggish offense is getting younger -- and more productive -- almost every week.Behind freshmen quarterback Jake Bentley, running back Rico Dowdle and receiver Bryan Edwards, the Gamecocks (4-4, 2-4 Southeastern Conference) have averaged 29 points in their past two wins after scoring only 14 points a game through their first six contests.Bentley had two touchdown passes, Dowdle rushed for 127 yards and Edwards caught a 17-yard TD in South Carolinas 24-21 stunner over then-No. 18 Tennessee this past Saturday. The trio will try to lead the Gamecocks to a third consecutive victory -- the team only had three wins in 2015 -- when they face last-place Missouri (2-6, 0-4) on Saturday.Its very exciting, said tight end Hayden Hurst, a 23-year-old sophomore. Seeing these younger guys come along quick, theres going to be a lot of special things going on around here.It has already been nothing like the Gamecocks endured in the seasons first six games. With senior Perry Orth and freshman Brandon McIlwain trading off quarterback starts, South Carolinas attack never got going.South Carolina only had two TD passes in the seasons first half, both of those thrown by Orth in a failed comeback at Mississippi State last month. The running game, led by A.J. Turner and David Williams, also had struggled to find room to move.The Gamecocks quickly fell to last in SEC scoring and rushing, spots they still occupy now despite the past two victories.Things, though, are trending upward.South Carolina put up its most yards (395) and points (34) in the 34-28 win over UMass in Bentleys first college start two games ago. He figured to have a harder time moving the team against Tennessee, but led the Gamecocks to a touchdown the first time they had the ball. South Carolina never lost the lead.Dowdle had sports hernia surgery in the offseason and hurt his groin in August. After missing the first four games, Dowdle really got going aagainst UMass with team-high 87 yards rushing.ddddddddddddHe notched his first 100-yard game in college last week, continually sweeping around Tennessees front line.Hurst remembered watching Dowdle make a sharp cut to escape a South Carolina linebacker during informal drills.I stood back and told Perry (Orth), `Hes going to be special, Hurst said.Edwards, a 6-foot-3, 210 wideout from Conway, was one of the top in-state prospects who briefly waivered from his long-held South Carolina commitment after coach Steve Spurriers mid-year departure and the Gamecocks 3-9 season.Muschamp made landing Edwards, among five finalists for South Carolinas Mr. Football award for the states top player, a priority and its paying this fall. He had eight catches for 101 yards in his debut, a win over Vanderbilt to start the season. He has caught TD passes each of the past two weeks, developing a quick and obvious chemistry with fellow freshman Bentley.Id rather play a young talented guy thats got a bright future than play an older guy thats not as talented, Muschamp said. Thats what its about. Thats where we are right now.Bentley, Dowdle and Edwards are unavailable to speak with reporters, per Muschamps policy.Muschamp said the players are talking bowl game and understand beating Missouri is an essential step. The Gamecocks have one more home game with FCS opponent Western Carolina on Nov. 19 between road trips to No. 10 Florida and No. 3 ClemsonMissouri has lost 10 straight SEC games, dating to its 24-10 win over the Gamecocks last year. First-year coach Barry Odom is also trying to blend young players with veterans to turn around his program.I know theyre hungry to win. Theyre hurt, he said. But I know weve been through a lot together. We know were going to stay the course.---More AP college football: Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys China ' ' '
