US Open Final Erupts in Chaos.
In one of the most controversial Grand Slam matches in recent memory, underdog Naomi Osaka beat US tennis star Serena Williams in straight sets in Saturday's US Open final. Osaka became the first Japanese tennis player to win a Grand Slam title (which include the Australian, US, and French Opens, and Wimbledon). Williams repeatedly argued with umpire Carlos Ramos over a number of penalties which began after Williams was questionably penalized for receiving coaching. The verbal tiff between Williams and Ramos escalated - clearly affecting her play - with Williams being dinged for verbal abuse after she protested a point deduction (see videos). Williams was ultimately fined $17,000 and the largely pro-Williams crowd booed and jeered during the trophy ceremony. At one point Osaka, a 20-year-old rising star in her own right, had to apologize to the crowd for beating her childhood idol. 

On the men's side Novak Djokovic defeated Juan Martin del Potro to win his 14th Grand Slam title. 
Fires Shut Down I-5 Indefinitely.
Officials said that Interstate 5 would remain closed indefinitely as California's Delta fire swept through a 45-mile stretch of the road. The fire, which originally forced the highway's closure last Wednesday, grew to nearly 41,000 acres (see photos) over the weekend and was only 5% contained as of Monday morning. The blaze stretches across northern Shasta county in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest and is on the verge of combining with the Hirz fire to the east and the Carr fire to the southwest - combined the three blazes have burned through over 314,000 acres. To date wildfires have burned through nearly 7 million acres this year (see stats), compared to 8 million acres through the same period last year, which was the costliest wildfire season in history.
Obama Jumps into Midterms.
Former President Obama jumped back into the political fray starting on Friday, giving two speeches after a long hiatus out of the public spotlight. In a Friday speech at the University of Illinois Obama argued against the current administration's policies, and warned against voter indifference in a Saturday speech in Orange County, CA - a traditionally conservative stronghold whose demographics have shifted in the past decade. A growing number of Democrats had pressed Obama to jump into the 2018 midterms, and he was dogged by criticism that he allowed the party to atrophy at the local and state levels during his administration. For his part, President Trump quipped that he "fell asleep" during Friday's speech, possibly referring to its hour-long length.
