LONDON (AP) — Roger Federer's eighth Wimbledon title has pushed him back up to No. 3 in the ATP rankings after ending last season at No. 16. And, because Federer sat out the last half of 2016, his points will only continue to accumulate, making a return to No. 1 a real possibility. Garbine Muguruza's (GAHR'-been-yuh MOO'-guh-roo-sahz) first championship at the All England Club returned her to the WTA's top 10 at No. 5, a rise of 10 spots, while runner-up Venus Williams goes from No. 11 to No. 9.

UNDATED (AP) — The Nationals are all set for reliable relievers Ryan Madson and Sean Doolittle to join them after making a trade to address their biggest need. The NL East leaders got them Sunday in a deal that sent pitcher Blake Treinen (TRY'-nen) and two minor leaguers to Oakland. Washington has converted just 22 of its 36 save chances this year, and wanted to solidify its bullpen as it looks ahead to October.

UNDATED (AP) — Infielder Danny Espinosa is available after being designated for assignment by the Angels. The 30-year-old hit 24 home runs for Washington last season and was traded in the winter to Los Angeles, but batted just .162 with six homers and 29 RBIs in 77 games for his new team.

BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — The United States' Bill May and Kanako Spendlove have claimed the bronze medal in the mixed duet technical synchronized swimming competition at the world championships in Hungary. It was the United States' first medal of the championships. Italy's Giorgio Minisini and Manila Flamini won gold today and Russia got the silver. The women's 3-meter springboard final and men's 10-meter platform final in synchronized diving take place later today.

CHICAGO (AP) — Defenseman Brian Campbell is retiring at age 38 after playing 17 NHL seasons and winning the Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2010. The Blackhawks say Campbell will join their front office, assisting with community and youth hockey initiatives and marketing. Campbell had 87 goals and 417 assists for 504 points in 1,082 regular-season games with the Buffalo Sabres, San Jose Sharks, Blackhawks and Florida Panthers. Buffalo drafted him in the sixth round in 1997.
