Vania King, the petite but complete tennis player from Long Beach, and her doubles partner Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan won their second consecutive major championship Monday at the U.S. Open by quickly completing a rain-delayed 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (4) win over second-seeded Liezel Huber and Nadia Petrova of Russia. King and Shvedova, seeded sixth, have played only seven tournaments together. Two of them have resulted in championships at Wimbledon and now at the Open. Huber and Petrova had been leading 5-4 in the third set Sunday when the match was stopped by rain.

LONDON — Serena Williams remained the last U.S. singles tennis player standing at the Olympics on Thursday at Wimbledon. But John Isner gave it a great try, losing to yet another Roger Federer magic moment. Williams coasted past former No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark, 6-0, 6-3, continuing her dominance of the women's bracket. She hit 30 winners, including six aces, and will face off in the semifinals against current No. 1 Victoria Azarenka of Belarus. Azarenka beat Germany's Angelique Kerber, 6-4, 7-5. Isner, the 6-foot-9 rising U.S. men's star, stretched No. 1 Federer but lost, 6-4, 7-6 (5)

LONDON — The biggest names weren't who made headlines at Wimbledon on Tuesday. The most interesting match was held on Court 1 between Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France and Milos Raonic of Canada. Tied after two sets, they went to the third and played and played and played. It was 48 games before Tsonga broke serve and won the match. It was the longest set in Olympic history, checking in at three hours. The match lasted 3:57. Raonic, known for his big serve, committed 74 unforced errors to 60 for Tsonga.

It's never been done before, a team coming from 0-2 down to win a Fed Cup championship. So U.S. captain Mary Joe Fernandez needs to conjure up a special pep talk. After Fed Cup rookie CoCo Vandeweghe was too late in penetrating the coolly multilayered game of 30-year-old Francesca Schiavone and Bethanie Mattek-Sands wasted a rousing comeback Saturday with a slew of unforced errors against Flavia Pennetta, the United States needs to win three matches Sunday against defending champion Italy to win its first championship since 2000.

Serena Williams prepared for her Saturday women's singles final by pairing with her sister Venus and upsetting the top-seeded (and fellow American team) Lisa Raymond and Liezel Huber on Friday. Agnieszka Radwanska prepared for her first major singles final by staying away from the All England Club, issuing a statement because she was too sick to talk. "She's resting up for tomorrow," Serena said after she and Venus had won, 2-6, 6-1, 6-2, and stayed alive for a chance to win a fifth women's doubles title.

Serena Williams is conflicted. If she watches her sister Venus on television, her stomach does flip-flops and she has to keep walking away. If Serena comes to the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center and sits in the player box at Arthur Ashe Stadium, her stomach settles down but her own longing to be playing causes her heart to flutter. What Serena isn't conflicted about is her pride. Her 30-year-old sister has made it to the U.S. Open semifinals without the loss of a set and after practically everyone had written Venus off. After all, the last time Venus won a major not named Wimbledon was here in 2001.

Rafael Nadal finally managed to beat Novak Djokovic in a final, thrashing the top-ranked Serb, 6-3, 6-1, on Sunday to win the Monte Carlo Masters for the eighth consecutive year and end a run of seven straight defeats to his rival in title matches. Nadal was hardly troubled by Djokovic in this one and broke the Serb's serve five times in a one-sided affair on clay to win his 42nd straight match at Monte Carlo. It was his first title since last year's French Open and the 47th of his career.
