In their semifinal earlier in the day, the Canadian duo were defeated by Russia's Ekaterina Khomiakova and Evgeniya Ukolova, 21-18, 21-19. The Russian pair was ninth at the 2012 Summer Olympics.

Fulham deal goes through

LONDON -- Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan bought the English soccer club Fulham on Friday, becoming the sixth American owner in the Premier League.

The deal between previous owner Mohamed Al Fayed and Khan for the sale of the London club was completed and approved Friday. Financial details were not disclosed.

"Fulham is the perfect club at the perfect time for me," Khan said in a statement sent to The Associated Press. "I want to be clear, I do not view myself so much as the owner of Fulham, but a custodian of the club on behalf of its fans. My priority is to ensure the club and Craven Cottage each have a viable and sustainable Premier League future that fans of present and future generations can be proud of.

"We will manage the club's financial and operational affairs with prudence and care, with youth development and community programs as fundamentally important elements of Fulham's future."

Al Fayed, an Egyptian businessman, has owned Fulham since 1997 and is leaving the club debt-free as it prepares for a 13th Premier League season.

Fulham plays at Craven Cottage, a 25,700-seat stadium on the banks of the Thames in West London.
