Good News and Not-So-Good News

It's football first. Arsenal won 1-0 over Bolton Wanderers in Emirates Stadium. Nicklas Bendtner scored the only goal at the 84th minute. Stoke City held Liverpool without any goal. It makes the distance between Arsenal and Liverpool eight points now.

In Old Trafford, Manchester United will play against Chelsea. This would be a big match for the second and third-positioned team. Man Utd has a good record at home while Chelsea has a good record at away.

"Losing the Champions League final to any team is difficult but to lose to one of your big rivals is hard to take," Rooney told United Review.
"The next game against that team is always going to be a big one, with people talking about the final and the players no doubt thinking about it as well.
"You could definitely tell it was still on their minds and I am sure it will be the case again tomorrow - I bet our fans will be reminding them."

Now for tennis, top seed Serena Williams makes strenous effort to beat Australian Samantha Stosur at the Sydney International 6-3, 6-7 (4), and 7-5. In the final set, Stosur led 5-4 and 40-0, but she failed to take advantage. Serena finally won 7-5.

British Andy Murray triumphed at Qatar Open after downing Andy Roddick 6-4, 6-2, even though he was injured when he faced Federer in the semi-final. How sad!

Elena Dementieva beat her compatriot Elena Vesnina to grab Auckland Classic title. In Brisbane, teenager Victoria Azarenka won over Marion Bartoli to achieve her first WTA Tour title.
