A very good sunny day to you all out there from us here at Meditravelist in Istanbul, Turkey 🇹🇷, that time again to catch up on events as they have happened and happen.
Tyler Skaggs, a US baseball star found dead in his hotel room at the very young age of 27. Tyler Skaggs was a Los Angeles baseball team, starting pitcher. In a statement released by the Angels, they wrote “It is with great sorrow that we report Tyler Skaggs passed away earlier today in Texas. Tyler has, and always will be, an important part of the Angels family. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Carl, and his entire family during this devastating time”
Southlake Police said Tyler was found unconscious in his Hilton hotel room on Monday afternoon, he was pronounced dead at the scene. Police are investigating but his death is not being treated as suspicious. Major League Baseball (MLB) cancelled Monday night’s game in response to the tragic news.
The Angels have lost a promising star, who had everything going upward for him.
Now onto some both shocking and amazing news, Cori Gauff, the fifteen-year-old American qualifier caused a stunning upset by beating five-time Wimbledon champion, Venus Williams in the first round. Cori Gauff who is ranked number 313, managed to defeat Venus Williams, who is 24 years her senior at 39 – 6-4 6-4.
This comes as a shock because Venus Williams has won four Grand Slam titles, these include two won at Wimbledon, this all happened before Cori Gauff was born.
Cori Gauff was quoted saying “it’s the first time I have cried after winning a match”, she had previously said that Venus and Serena Williams are her idols.
Gauff will now play Slovakia’s Magdalena Rybarikova, she is 15 years her senior, in the second round. “I’m really happy Wimbledon gave me the chance to play, I never thought I would get this far”, Cori Gauff said.
Joining Venus Williams is Naomi Osaka, she crashed out of Wimbledon in the first round. Rewind five months ago Naomi Osaka had the world at her feet as she won her successive Grand Slam title. On Monday she played on the centre court against Yulia Putintseva, it felt like watching an entirely different person.
Naomi Osaka’s problem can be traced to the fact that she has backed off behind the baseline. When she won the Australian and US Opens, she was stepping into the court and controlling the points with her bold hitting. That’s what made her formidable. Against Putintseva she just wasn’t dictating play.
In Naomi Osaka’s case it’s too much too soon, in the short space of time Osaka has become a huge superstar, particularly in Japan, it could be a case of everything that’s happened off the court, might have just become too much for her to handle.
Now China has accused protesters who vandalised Hong Kong’s parliament on Monday of “serious illegal actions that trample the rule of law”
Hundreds of police in Hong Kong used tear gas to clear the building, Beijing urged the city to investigate what it called “criminal responsibility of the violent offenders”
Hong Kong is a part of China but is run under what’s termed, one country, two systems, arrangement that guarantees it a level of autonomy, and rights not seen on the mainland.
Monday’s disorder followed weeks of protests over a controversial extradition law, which criticss said could be used to send political dissidents from Hong Kong to mainland China.
