A SNAPSHOT OF ROUND ONE IN THE A-LEAGUETHEY SAID ITI had a beautiful text this morning from a kid, Gabe, who sat next to me in the derby last year, whos got cancer. He said hed be watching the game, and that this type of result with a Sky Blues win gives him reason to live. I read that to the boys before the game, and you could see the hunger straight away in the players faces, Sydney FC coach Graham Arnold reveals the surprising motivation behind his sides 4-0 victory over Western Sydney.STAT THAT MATTERSSaturday nights Sydney derby became the best-attended Australian club football match when 61,880 went through the gates at ANZ Stadium. Unfortunately, most were Western Sydney fans who cant have been pleased by the 4-0 loss.MAN OF THE ROUNDHeres cheers for Paul Okon, whose first half as an A-League coach was as miserable as you could get. At half-time, Perth Glory had three goals and were every chance of hitting double figures against his Central Coast side. Okons response was to drop his most experienced defender, Jacques Faty. It worked as the Mariners conjured a most astonishing 3-3 draw after a double from Roy ODonovan.SAFEST HANDSDanny Vukovic was assured in the derby but Dean Bouzanis weathered the storm in Wellington. The dismissal of Thomas Sorensen brought the back-up gloveman into goal and he stood strong as the 10-man City resisted the Phoenix. Next up, the Melbourne derby.CONTROVERSY CORNERBrisbane Roar coach John Aloisi was scathing of referee Shaun Evans decision to send off Matt McKay in his 200th A-League match. Melbourne Victory coach Kevin Muscat hated seeing a 96th minute equaliser in his net when only 95 minutes were issued. A 1-1 draw was probably fair.UNDER PRESSUREIs it too early for Western Sydney coach Tony Popovic to take some heat? Certainly Wanderers captain Nikolai Topor-Stanley should be chastised for his rash send-off in the FFA Cup that deemed him ineligible for the 4-0 derby mauling. Next up, a trip to champions Adelaide. Jonathan Schoop Twins Jersey . -- Matt Kuchar and Harris English ran away with the Franklin Templeton Shootout, shooting a 14-under 58 on Sunday in the final-round scramble to break the tournament course record. C. J. Cron Jersey .J. -- Pitcher Carl Pavano is retiring after 14 major league seasons. http://www.twinssale.com/twins-kirby-puckett-jersey/ . -- PGA TOUR Canada member Steve Saunders took a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Web. Kirby Puckett Jersey . The native of Mont-Tremblant, Que., captured a World Cup downhill event Saturday, his second this year and fifth career victory on the circuit. Rod Carew Jersey . In taking its goal tally to 99 in all competitions already this season, City delivered another demonstration of its lethal firepower at Etihad Stadium to set up a fourth-round match at home to another second-tier team -- Watford. 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 tthis 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.dddddddddddd 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. ' ' '
