Dumervil faces charge
of assault with a firearm
Defensive end Elvis Dumervil of the Denver Broncos has been charged with aggravated assault with a firearm in Florida.
Court records show the 28-year-old is facing the third-degree felony charge in Miami-Dade County. Det. Vivian Hernandez said Dumervil and another man were arrested Saturday in Miami Beach; no further details were immediately available.
In a statement, team officials said, "This is a very serious allegation, and we will thoroughly review the details while the legal process runs its course."
Dumervil, who was born and raised in Miami, led the NFL in sacks in 2009 with 17 and is a two-time Pro Bowl selection.
Dumervil's attorney, Harvey Steinberg, said, "No assault or aggravated assault took place."
Suspended Williams says
he will coach again
Gregg Williams' public image has taken a beating since his role in the New Orleans Saints' bounty program was revealed, culminating with his indefinite suspension March 21 from the league.
Ex-Saints defensive coordinator Williams, making his first public appearance since commissioner Roger Goodell's ruling, briefly met with reporters at the Gregg Williams Foundation Tiger Classic golf benefit in Excelsior Springs, Mo.
Without going into specifics and acknowledging he hasn't talked with Goodell since the suspension was handed down, Williams said he will coach again but preferred to "keep the focus on the kids" and his foundation.
Williams, 54, left the Saints after last season to take a job as defensive coordinator of the St. Louis Rams.
Williams wins her 43rd title
Serena Williams beat Coco Vandeweghe 7-5, 6-3 in Stanford, Calif., for her second consecutive Bank of the West Classic title.
Eight days after winning the Wimbledon singles championship, the 30-year-old Williams earned the 43rd WTA Tour title of her career — tying sister Venus Williams, 32, for the most among active players.
It was the first all-American WTA final on home soil since Lindsay Davenport beat Serena Williams in 2004 in Los Angeles.
Serena is headed to the London Olympics.
Perhaps because of jet lag, Williams wasn't at her best at Stanford.
"I definitely think I survived," she said. "I don't think I played my greatest. But I do think I was mentally there and that helped me out a lot."
Isner serves up another title
Top-seeded John Isner entered the event wondering what was wrong with his game — and the 6-foot-9 American left Newport, R.I., with his second consecutive Hall of Fame Tennis Championships title.
Isner beat Australian Lleyton Hewitt 7-6 (7-1), 6-4 in the final.
The 27-year-old Isner, who has four ATP titles in his career, was not broken in the match and held serve in 57 of 58 games in the grass-court tournament. Isner, ranked 11th in the world, rebounded from a first-round loss at Wimbledon.
Hewitt, 31, has had five surgeries in the last four years. The former No. 1 player entered the tournament ranked 233rd.

Brad Davis and Will Bruin scored in the first half, Oscar Boniek Garcia and Brian Ching scored in the second and the Houston Dynamo defeated 10-man D.C. United 4-0 to extend Houston's Major League Soccer unbeaten streak to four matches.
Davis put the Dynamo ahead 1-0 in the 19th minute on a penalty kick. Houston earned the penalty after D.C. United goalkeeper Bill Hamid tripped Macoumba Kandji as he was going for a ball in the penalty area. Hamid was given a red card on the play and D.C. United played a man down the rest of the way.
Ching, a former standout for Gonzaga and the USL Seattle Sounders, scored on a penalty kick in the 89th minute.
