Serena Williams wins fifth Wimbledon crown
LONDON, July 7 (UPI) -- American Serena Williams topped Agnieszka Radwanska in three sets Saturday to win her fifth Wimbledon championship.
Williams won the first five games of the match but then dropped the second set before rebounding and upending her Polish opponent 6-1, 5-7, 6-2.
The win put Williams back on top in the tournament she won in 2002, 2003, 2009 and 2010, drawing her even with her older sister, Venus, who won the title in 2000, 2001, 2005, 2007 and 2008.
Williams employed a solid serve, which averaged 107 miles per hour, to turn back the determined Radwanska. Williams won 82 percent of her points when she got her first serve in. She served 17 aces to two for Radwanska, which helped overcome 36 unforced errors.
Radwanska, who was seeking her first Grand Slam title, won 61 percent of her first-serve points. She was the first Polish player to play in a major title match since 1939.
Roger Federer and Andy Murray meet for the Wimbledon men's championship Sunday.

Vikings' Peterson arrested in Houston
HOUSTON, July 7 (UPI) -- Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was arrested Saturday after allegedly refusing to leave a Houston bar, police say.
A report issued by the Houston Police Department said Peterson was taken into custody early Saturday and charged with "resisting arrest/search unclassified" after allegedly refusing to leave a bar at closing time, the Houston Chronicle reported.
Police said Peterson pushed an off-duty Houston police officer who was working as security at the establishment after being asked repeatedly to leave and later resisted arrest.
The Vikings star posted bond at the city jail and was released later Saturday, the Chronicle said.
"We are aware of the situation. We will withhold further comment until more information is known," the team said in a statement.
The five-time all-pro running back, a native of Palestine, Texas, is recovering from reconstructive knee surgery performed in December following a season in which he gained 970 yards and scored 13 touchdowns for Minnesota.
Over his five-year career, Peterson has racked up 6,752 rushing yards on 1,406 carries, scoring 64 times on the ground.
Froome wins Stage 7, Wiggins yellow jersey
LA PLANCHE DES BELLE FILLES, France, July 7 (UPI) -- Chris Froome won Stage 7 and Bradley Wiggins grabbed the yellow jersey at the Tour de France Saturday, boosting Britain's fortunes in cycling's premier event.
Froome outpaced his British countryman as well as defending champion Cadel Evans down the stretch at La Planche des Belles Filles, France, taking the 124-mile Stage 7 with a time of 4 hours, 58 minutes and 35 seconds.
Evans claimed the runner-up spot 2 seconds behind Froome, just edging Wiggins, who nevertheless wrested the mantle of overall leader from the Australian with the performance.
The Briton established a 10-second advantage at the top of the board.
Finishing fourth another 5 seconds back was Italy's Vincenzo Nibali. He used the effort to secure third place overall, 16 seconds behind Wiggins.
The finish at La Planche des Belles Filles -- a new addition to the Tour de France -- includes a steep climb during the last few miles, with the final 100 meters at a 14-percent grade.
That climb took a toll on Switzerland's Fabian Cancellara, who lost the yellow jersey for the first time since the prologue. He finished 1:52 off Froome's pace for the day and fell to 11th overall.
