LONDON -- Serena Williams is leaving Wimbledon with two trophies, teaming with her older sister Venus to win a womens doubles final that began a little more than 3 hours after the singles final ended 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 collected her 22nd Grand Slam singles title with a straight-set victory over Angelique Kerber in that final.I had just enough time to change and get my ankles re-taped, 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 re-set 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. But 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.Theyre 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.And Venus said: 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 for trophies at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open in 2010. Babos has never won a major doubles trophy; she was the runner-up with Kristina Mladenovic at Wimbledon in 2014.In mens doubles, Nicolas Mahut and Pierre-Hugues Herbert defeated Julien Benneteau and Edouard Roger-Vasselin 6-4, 7-6 (1), 6-3 to win their first Wimbledon title. It was the first all-French Grand Slam mens doubles final of the Open era.The victory gives Mahut a happier memory from the grass-court tournament where he lost the longest match in tennis history, 70-68 in the fifth set against John Isner in the first round of singles in 2010.We talk a lot about this match already. Im very proud of it, Mahut said, referring to the contest that lasted more than 11 hours, spread over three days. But now its something different. Now I can come in the press conference as a Wimbledon champion. Its great.This is the second major title together for the top-seeded team of Mahut and Herbert, who won the U.S. Open last year.Theyre only the second pair of Frenchmen to earn the doubles trophy at the All England Club in the Open era, which began in 1968. Arnaud Clement and Michael Llodra won Wimbledon in 2007.Benneteau and Roger-Vasselin won the 2014 French Open doubles championship.Mahut knows Benneteau and Roger-Vasselin rather well, having won ATP doubles titles with each of them in the past. Mahut and Benneteau even had success together as teens, collecting seven junior doubles titles in 1999.---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at Mitch Garver Jersey .

Still, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke thought taking him out before the fifth inning was an unusual move. "Im looking up at the board and hes got two hits given up and one run, and Im taking him out after the fourth inning," Roenicke said. .

TAMPA, Fla. -- Josh Huff is getting a second chance in the NFL with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.The former Philadelphia receiver and special teams standout was signed to the Bucs practice squad Monday, less than a week after the third-year pro was arrested on gun and drug charges and subsequently released by the Eagles.Huff, 25, was charged Nov. 1 with possession of a 9 mm handgun without a permit and having a small amount of marijuana after he was pulled over for speeding in New Jersey. The 2014 third-round draft pick, who also was cited for driving while intoxicated, had 48 receptions for 482 yards and four touchdowns in two-plus seasons in Philadelphia.You live and you learn, Huff said Monday. Obviously Im mad that I put myself in that situation, but you live and you learn. Im excited to be here and get going and get used to my new teammates, the players around here and the new staff.Huff had 13 receptions for 72 yards and one TD for the Eagles this season. Hes also averaged 27.7 yards on 42 career kickoff returns, including TDs of 107 and 98 yards since entering the NFL.Coach Dirk Koetter would not speculate on what Huff could contribute to a team that needs help at receiver with veteran Vincent Jackson on injured reserve.We signed him to the practice squad. Thats it, Koetter said.All your practice squad guys are developmental guys youre trying to look at. We had Josh in the Senior Bowl a few years ago when I was coaching in Atlanta, the coach added.dddddddddddd Weve got 10 guys on our practice squad, and were trying to develop those guys who could help us down the road.Huff said hes grateful for the opportunity for a fresh start. The 5-foot-11, 206-pound receiver acknowledged it wont be easy to learn a new offense in the middle of the season.But Im up for the challenge. Im going to be here, in the playbook, and try to do everything else. Im going to try to do everything I can to show these coaches that Im here for a good reason and ready to help my teammates, Huff said.My main focus right now is to learn the playbook, learn my teammates and learn how things are done around here, he added. I have a great group of guys around me to help teach me the ropes.Huff told The Associated Press in Philadelphia last week that he carries a gun because he doesnt trust people in his hometown of Houston and he has to protect his family.The players attorney said Huff has a license to carry in Texas and that the weapon was not loaded when the athletes car was stopped on the New Jersey side of the Walt Whitman Bridge.---For more NFL coverage: and ' ' '
