STANFORD, Calif. Jose Bautista White Jersey . -- Serena Williams stared at the court, took a deep breath and seemed to clear her head after falling behind in the first set. She dominated the rest of the way. Playing her first tournament since her departure from Wimbledon because of equilibrium problems, the top-ranked Williams won her WTA-leading fourth title of the year, beating third-seeded Angelique Kerber 7-6(1), 6-3 on Sunday in Bank of the West Classic. Kerber, 0-4 in finals this season, won five straight games to go up 5-1 and was serving for the first set at 5-2. Williams saved two set points and went to win five games in a row. "I blinked my eye and I was down 1-5," Williams said. "Angelique was playing well and I thought Whats going on? I tried to relax, not think about anything and just do the right thing." The eighth-ranked Kerber forced a tiebreaker, but Williams took the first five points. "Its a good thing that it happened," Williams said. "When Im not playing great I know I can make some kind of comeback." Williams didnt play well in any of the first sets this week but always found a way to win. "Ive been training hard all year and hopefully that pays off, especially after Wimbledon," Williams said. "I stayed positive here. This shows Im moving in the right direction." Questions were raised after she retired from a doubles match with sister Venus at Wimbledon in June. A viral infection affected her equilibrium. She answered those questions with an exclamation point Sunday. "Every week is a new week and all I can do is try and improve," Williams said. "For me its all mental: being there, being positive and being good to myself." Williams has beaten the left-handed Kerber four straight times and five of six overall. All of their matches have been in straight sets. "I gave everything I could out there," Kerber said. "When she was down she started hitting the ball better. Its a special thing she has. On the important points, she goes for it." Williams will be No. 1 for the 200th week in her career when the rankings are announced Monday. She is fifth on the career list, nine weeks behind fourth-place Martina Hingis. "I feel like Im just me. I dont feel any different from anyone else on this planet," Williams said. "To be that of as that is pretty awesome." Williams extended her winning streak to 13 matches in winning her third title at Stanford in four years. "It just says how much I love to play here," she said. Kerber, who will rise to No. 7, was the first German to reach the final in the event since Sylvia Hanika in 1987. Bettina Bunge, in 1983, was the last German to win the tournament. "I had a great week," Kerber said. "I played some great matches against some good opponents. She showed shes the best player in the world." Williams has not lost to a top-10 player this season. Kerber has never beaten a No. 1 player. Williams improved to 17-2 overall in matches played at Stanford. Shes 30-5 on the season and 662-117 for her career. Williams is 61-17 in finals. Williams has not played well at Grand Slam events this year, failing to reach the quarterfinals of the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon. Winning the U.S. Open, she said, "would make it better but not erase anything. But Im just focused on the next tournament." R.A. Dickey Authentic Jersey . Assistant coaches are arguing on the sideline. A disgruntled star player isnt giving his best effort. Josh Donaldson Jersey . The team announced Thursday that the 19-year-old midfielder signed as a "home grown" player. The Sherbrooke, Que., native played five games in the developmental league and twice started reserve league games this season.The Calgary Stampeders have vaulted to the top of the CFL on TSN Power Rankings after rematch week in the CFL. The Stamps avenged their Labour Day loss at home to the Eskimos with a 30-20 win over their provincial rivals in Edmonton. The win moves the Stampeders back into first place in the West with a 7-3 record. The Stampeders got their running game going against the Esks, racking up 182 yards on the ground while Henry Burris was solid in throwing for 316 yards with one touchdown and one interception. The Montreal Alouettes also moved up in this weeks rankings, climbing two spots to second, after exacting revenge against the Tiger-Cats in their own Labour Day rematch. The Alouettes thumped the Ticats 43-13 at home as Anthony Calvillo put on a show for the fans in Montreal. Calvillo threw for 421 yards and four touchdowns in the rout while the Als defence held Hamilton to just 246 yards of total offence. Last weeks top team, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, took a tumble in this weeks rankings after a second straight loss to Saskatchewan. The Bombers were blown out by the Riders at home in the annual Banjo Bowl as Buck Pierce threw five interceptions. They now sit just one game ahead of Montreal in the East division with next weeks matchup against the Als looming. Marco Estrada Blue Jays Jersey. Also sliding this week were the Ticats who dropped one spot to fourth with their loss to the Alouettes. Meanwhile, the Eskimos stayed put in fifth position after dropping the back half of their home-and-home series with the Stamps. Saskatchewan moves up one spot to sixth after back-to-back blowout wins over the Bombers. Darian Durant threw four touchdowns on Sunday while the Saskatchewan defence forced six Blue Bomber turnovers. The Riders were also buoyed by the return of Andy Fantuz, who had two catches for 47 yards in his first game back after being released by the Chicago Bears. B.C. slipped one spot to seventh this week despite a 28-6 win over the Argos in the final game at Empire Field. The Lions have won four of their last five games, with the last two coming against the lowly Argonauts. For the Argos, the loss dropped them to 2-8 on the season as a change at quarterback did nothing to reverse the teams fortunes. Steven Jyles threw for 220 yards in his first game as Torontos starter but failed to generate much in the way of scoring.
