England -Venus Williams won her fourth Wimbledon title
Saturday, then basked in cheers on the court that always seems
to inspire her best tennis.
The heavily favored Williams beat surprising finalist Marion
Bartoli 6-4, 6-1 for her sixth Grand Slam title. She also won
Wimbledon in 2000, 2001 and 2005.
At No. 31, Williams became the lowest-ranked women's winner in
Wimbledon history. Plagued in recent years by injuries that
sent her ranking sliding, she rediscovered her championship
form this week at the All England Club.
The crowd roared as Williams raised her arms, grinned and,
after shaking hands with her opponent, let out with an
With Wimbledon paying equal prize money to men and women for
the first time this year, Williams won $1.407 million. Bartoli
received $703,500. Williams has been among the most vocal
proponents of equal prize money.
Open winner Rafael Nadal defeated Roger Federer in Sunday's
final and with that win Nadal became the second man since 1914
to win the tournament three consecutive times, and the first
since Bjorn Borg in 1978-81.
Nadal won his third Grand Slam title in his 13th major event,
which ties for second-fastest behind Jimmy Connors and John
McEnroe, who each needed 12 events to collect major
championship No. 3.
At 21, Nadal has won 17 clay court titles, which ties Andres
Gomez for ninth-most. Guillermo Vilas holds the record with
"Every player has his weakness,'' Vilas said, "though at first
it doesn't appear that Nadal has any on clay.''
Nadal is 21-0 at Roland Garros and 34-0 in best-of-five-set
matches on clay. He's tied with four other men for third on
the list of most French titles; Borg leads with six.
And while Nadal is still No. 2 in the rankings behind Federer,
he leads the tour in 2007 with five titles and 43 matches won.
-Justine Henin claimed her third consecutive Roland Garros
title and fourth overall Saturday, taking advantage of
19-year-old Ana Ivanovic's nervous play to win 6-1, 6-2.
Henin closed out the victory with a forehand volley, then
flipped away her racket, buried her head in her hands, leaned
on the net and exhaled.
"It's surreal to win for the third time in a row,'' Henin
said. "I am struggling to take it in.''
She became the first woman since Monica Seles in 1990-92 to
win three consecutive Roland Garros titles, and only the
second since 1937.

Fla. -- Novak Djokovic,the precocious 19-year-old Serb beat
qualifier Guillermo Canas 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 in Sunday's final and
captured the Sony Ericsson Open Title. Canas upset the
top-ranked Federer twice last month, including in the fourth
round Tuesday. But the 29-year-old Argentine's relentless
baseline game failed to faze Djokovic, who dominated with his
versatile shotmaking and held every service game.
With his first ATP Masters Series title, Djokovic became the
youngest men's champion in the tournament's 23-year history.
He won every set he played -- the first time the Key Biscayne
men's champion has done that since Ivan Lendl in 1989. It was
the second title of the season for Djokovic and fourth of his
Fla. -- Three-time champion Serena Williams reached the
semifinals, beating No. 8-seeded Nicole Vaidisova 6-1, 6-4 at
the Sony Ericsson Open Wednesday.
Williams will play for the fourth day in a row Thursday night
when she faces No. 14 Shahar Peer. A 19-year-old corporal in
the Israeli Army, Peer nearly pulled off an upset against
Williams in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open in
January, losing the third set 8-6

Federer Wins Record Third Laureus World Sportsman Award
Swiss tennis star Roger Federer has made history by becoming the
first ever recipient of three Laureus World Sports Awards. Federer
was named Laureus World Sportsman of the Year, for the third
straight time, at the 2007 Awards Ceremony in Barcelona, after
another highly successful 12 months in which he won Wimbledon, the
US Open and the Australian Open.
Tennis was the big winner in Barcelona as American Serena Williams
took the Laureus World Comeback of the Year Award following her
Australian Open victory, and France’s Amélie Mauresmo won the
Laureus World Breakthrough of the Year Award after her first two
Grand Slam victories.
The Laureus World Sportswoman of the Year Award went to Russia’s
brilliant pole-vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva, while Italy won the
Laureus World Team of the Year Award after their World Cup success
in Germany last summer.
There was an enthusiastic reception at the Awards Ceremony, staged
at the Palau Sant Jordi, as FC Barcelona won the Laureus Spirit of
Sport Award for their support of UNICEF. German football legend
Franz Beckenbauer, President of the German 2006 World Cup Organising
Committee, won the Laureus Lifetime Achievement Award.
American surfer Kelly Slater was a popular winner of the Laureus
World Action Sportsperson of the Year Award after becoming World
Champion for a record eighth time.
New Calendar for WTA
KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. -- The WTA Tour
approved a streamlined tournament schedule beginning in 2009 that
will include a longer off season and fewer top-level events, with
the changes designed to increase player participation and reduce
The number of Tier I and Tier II events will be cut to 20 from 26,
and the off season will expand to nine weeks from seven, the women's
tour said Tuesday.
Players will be required to participate in four events -- Key

In a separate move by the men's tour, the ATP board approved

a nine-day tournament.
The women's season-ending Tour Championships will move to October
from November to lengthen the offseason.
The WTA Tour also announced a prize-money increase and stiffer
penalties for players who skip mandatory events. Prize money will
grow to an estimated $72 million in 2009, 30 percent more than this
year, the tour said. Top-10 players failing to play at tournaments
as required will be subject to suspensions and larger fines than in
The 20 premier events under the streamlined schedule include:

Los Angeles, Miami, Montreal-Toronto, New Haven, Stanford.
• Seven in Europe -- Berlin, Eastbourne, Madrid, Moscow, Paris,
