American tennis superstar Serena Williams moved through the US Open quarterfinals with a victory that was deemed as the most impressive performance of the annual tournament in New York City. Williams has surpassed Roger Federer's record with a 308th Grand Slam match win. This could be more than enough to count this day as a close to perfect one.
Fans at the Ashe Stadium court were expecting an all-Williams battle at the semifinals, however, the other Williams sister, Venus, exited the match early after losing a third-set tiebreaker. Labor Day weekend would have been close to perfect for the sisters, but Venus' dramatic defeat dampened the celebrations.

The WWE brand split had been an interesting storyline thus far, and it reaches its first peak at Backlash 2016. It is the first SmackDown pay-per-view since its return to live television, and its first as a brand since No Way Out in 2007.
A SmackDown superstars-only show is hard to pull off at this point. The roster only has 33 superstars and six of them are tied to tag teams. However, this tight number gives underrated talent an opportunity to make a name for themselves on a big stage.
The NFL season kicks off Thursday, and it looks like teams are not yet done with refining their rosters. One of the biggest news last week was the trade between the Minnesota Vikings and the Philadelphia Eagles, which sent a 2017 first round pick and a 2018 fourth-rounder for Philly quarterback Sam Bradford.
This week, rumors are circulating around the Mile-High City. The Denver Broncos were reportedly interested in moving veteran cornerback Aqib Talib. This had been quickly met by both Broncos Vice President of Public Relations Patrick Smyth and general manager John Elway with a resounding "false." Elway even denied that Talib's name was raised in any discussion.
The 30-year-old Talib might be Denver's lone stalwart in his position, but with multiple issues dealt with by the star and his team, a change of scenery may be a good option for both him and other franchises in need. more >>

Payet learned that he had gained back his full 90-minutes playing time after the Hammers won against the Hornets. He was not seen playing during this season because of an injury he acquired from their game with Chelsea.
