Tennis legend Navratilova ends incredible career on high
"It's a strange kind of feeling - both joy and sorrow, but it's more joy, because I now have my career behind me and now I can do whatever I want. I have a lot of possible plans...in Prague we're going to do an exhibition called Art Grand Slam, in the middle of October. So I have a full programme, and I don't have to worry and train to stay in condition for the next tournament. That's behind me now."
Martin Damm celebrating first Grand Slam trophy at 34
Martina Navratilova and Bob Bryan beat the Czech duo of Martin Damm and Kveta Peschke in the mixed doubles final. But Damm didn't leave Flushing Meadows too unhappy - he won the men's doubles with Leander Paes of India, finally taking his first Grand Slam title at the age of 34.

Spotakova breaks Czech women's javelin record for third time this year
New Sparta boss off to winning start but team fails to convince
"In the first half we played very badly, we didn't hold on to the ball, we didn't create chances, we didn't pose any danger in our opponents' goalmouth. That's why we made some changes and strengthened our attack, played more simply and sent in more crosses from the wings. I'm glad we won and that Dosek got two goals - it's good for him and it's good for us."
Sparta are now fifth in the league, five points behind leaders Mlada Boleslav and Liberec.
