LONDON -- Angelique Kerber scrapped and scrambled and pushed Serena Williams to the limit. Grant Fuhr Maple Leafs Jersey Authentic .The German hustled from corner to corner for great gets, crouched low for squat shots, and mixed off-speed slices with searing flat winners.In the end, Kerbers stellar counter-punching defense was not enough to defuse the power game and booming serves of Williams, who prevailed 7-5, 6-3 in the Wimbledon final on Saturday.Kerber beat Williams in three sets in the Australian Open final in January for her first Grand Slam title. But, this time, there was no stopping Williams from equaling Steffi Grafs Open-era record of 22 major championships.I think I played what I could today, the fourth-seeded Kerber said. Serena was serving unbelievable today. At the end I was trying everything, but she deserved it today. I was not the one who lost the match. I think she won the match.The left-handed Kerber had not dropped a set on the way to her second Grand Slam final of the year and beat Serenas sister, five-time champion Venus, in the semifinals. The 28-year-old Kerber was bidding to become the first player to beat the sisters back-to-back in the semifinals and final at a Grand Slam.But Serena had too much firepower: She served 13 aces, to none for Kerber. The German had only nine unforced errors, to go with 12 winners. But Williams piled up 39 winners, along with 21 unforced errors.Today just her serve was much better, Kerber said. On grass the serve is also a little bit strange because its tougher to return it. That was the only thing which changed from Australia.Kerber came out fighting from the start, trading hard groundstrokes with Williams, mixing up her play and holding serve. But a brief lapse in the 12th game proved costly. Serving at 6-5 down, 15-all, Kerber made a forehand error followed by a backhand error to suddenly give Williams two break and set points.Kerber saved the first with an easy forehand, but Williams converted on the next with a cross-court backhand winner to take the first set.I think I was still playing not bad, Kerber said. I think Serena was returning better there. She was just going for it. I played two points a little bit too short, and she was there, and she goes for it. She did everything right.Kerber didnt fold. She picked up her game in the second set, pumping her arms to celebrate winners as the Centre Court crowd tried to will her back into the match.Kerber finally earned a break point -- her only one of the match -- at 3-3. At 30-40, Williams turned to her biggest weapon: She hit a 117 mph ace to save the break point, followed with a 124 mph ace and held for 4-3.This is how Serena is playing, Kerber said. I had one breakpoint, and I couldnt do (anything).In the next game, Kerber went up 40-15 but Williams began attacking and forced a break point. Kerber hit perhaps her worst shot of the match -- a backhand long -- to concede the break. Williams served out the match at love.Of course, Im disappointed, Kerber said. But at the end Im also proud about that what I did. That makes it a little easier for me.Kerber will move up to No. 2 in the rankings next week behind Williams, who has been No. 1 since February 2013.I think its tough to follow in her footsteps, Kerber said. Im going my own way. I think Im on a good way to play better and better. I hope that I will reach a few more finals and maybe win a few more Grand Slams.---Follow Stephen Wilson on Twitter: www.twitter.com/stevewilsonap.

Reassurance came from Paul Tesori, his caddie and close friend whose newborn son is in intensive care in a Florida hospital. "Paul sent me a text this morning, just told me he loved me and wanted to go out and fight as hard as I would any other day," Simpson said Sunday after doing just that. Auston Matthews Maple Leafs Jersey .C. -- After a listless first half, the Washington Wizards used a big third quarter run to beat the Charlotte Bobcats Bradley Beal scored 21 points and the Wizards used a 17-0 run in the third quarter to take control of what had been a close game and beat the Bobcats 97-83 on Tuesday night. http://www.officialleafsauthority.com/grant-fuhr-maple-leafs-jersey-c-37/ . -- Brandon Jennings made the most of his first game with the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night. The dawn of a new Premier League season brings new challenges for every club, but forSouthampton it seems some old difficulties pop up every year.The Saints once again enter the campaign with some glaring questions that need to be answered, namely, how will a new manager on the south coast fare? And how will the club cope with losing more high-profile players to bigger clubs?These questions will begin to be answered on Saturday when the Saints welcome Watford to the St. Marys Stadium.Southampton finished in sixth place last season with 63 points, good for a spot in the Europa League group stage this term, however, for a club that has had their best seasons over the past few years, it will be interesting to see how the extra midweek fixtures affect their domestic performance.Former manager Ronald Koeman was outstanding for the Saints during his tenure, but his shock departure for the greener pastures of Everton left a sizable void along the touch line which was ultimately filled by Frenchman Claude Puel, who guided Nice to a Champions League berth in Ligue 1.Claude has a track record of improving the situations he has been presented with, Southampton executive director of football Les Reed said, and we are confident he can repeat this at Southampton.Puel will have another rebuilding job on his hands at St. Marys as the club has lost goal-scoring leader Sadio Mane to Liverpool, midfielder Victor Wanyama to Tottenham and Graziano Pelle to China.On the arrivals side, the club signed Norwich winger Nathan Redmond for 11 million pounds, Bayern Munich midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg for 12.8 million and goalkeeper Alex McCarthy from Crystal Palace for 4 million.The tactical shift from a 4-3-3 under Koeman to a more non-traditional 4-1-3-2 under Puel will also be an adjustment that will take time to be ironed out.I hope that its a possibility in the future for Southampton to play in the Champions League, but its important to improve with these players, Puel said. They know the high level with the Europa League and I hope with thhe Champions League for the future. Kris Versteeg Maple Leafs Jersey. Its going to be a tough season, obviously, defender Virgil van Dijk told the clubs officialYouTube channel. Every team I think gets stronger every season and its going to be tough, but we know what were capable of and, personally, I look forward to every competition were inand hopefully we can achieve some special things.After a successful Premier League campaign which saw Watford survive the drop and finish mid-table in 13th with 45 points, the Hornets look to build on their relative success this term, but they will also have to do it with a new manager on the touch line.Walter Mazzarri takes charge following the departure of Quique Sanchez Flores, who did quite well to keep his club in the top flight with the help of forward tandem Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo.Deeney, the subject of a 25 million pound bid from champions Leicester City earlier in the summer, returned to Watford by signing a new five-year deal, while Ighalo will also return to lead the line at Vicarage Road.Its very important because when you go to a club you ask for some information and then they tell you here that Troy Deeney is the leader of Watford, Mazzarri said of his captain signing a new deal. He loves the Watford shirt and that for us is very important. Hes the captain and the leader of the team.The club also brought in Isaac Success from Granada and wing backs Juan Zuniga and Brice Dja Djedje as the club transitions to a 3-5-2. Christian Kabasele has also arrived from Genk in a 6 million pound deal and is expected to take up a slot in the back-three.I know we have a very difficult start, but it also means that I am very curious to see how my players will be able to cope and fight against these teams, Mazzarri said at his first press conference. I have always been a very positive person so well see how it goes on the pitch and then we will accept whatever comes out of it.
