2. Naomi Osaka announces break from tennis
Defending United States Open Tennis Champion Naomi Osaka’s run in the 2021 tournament came to a shocking end on Friday night. It was a stunning moment when she made the emotional statement at the US Open post-match news conference. “I feel like for me recently, like, when I win, I don’t feel happy,” Osaka said. “I feel more like a relief. And then when I lose, I feel very sad. I don’t think that’s normal. And I didn’t want to cry, but basically, I feel like…”
A moderator interjected to cut the press conference short as she paused, but Osaka tearfully pushed through to continue. The tearful announcement came after a difficult loss to 18-year-old Canadian Leylah Fernandez. Osaka won their first set, but she struggled during the second and threw her racket three times in frustration as the matchup continued. Osaka recently chose her mental health over tennis when she withdrew from the French Open and Wimbledon earlier this year. Cheque album release date

The fate of Guinea’s President Alpha Condé is unclear after an unverified video showed him surrounded by soldiers, who said they had seized power. They appeared on national TV claiming to have dissolved the government. This follows hours of heavy gunfire near the presidential palace in the capital, Conakry. Calling themselves the National Committee for Reconciliation and Development, they said the constitution had been dissolved and that there would be consultations to create a new, more inclusive one. Numerous reports say the coup was led by an elite unit headed by a former French legionnaire, Lt Col Mamady Doumbouya.
However, the defense ministry said the attempted takeover had been thwarted by the presidential guard. UN secretary-general Antonio Guterres and the African Union have condemned the apparent coup and demanded the immediate release of President Condé. The West African country of Guinea is rich in natural resources but years of unrest and mismanagement mean it is one of the world’s poorest countries.
