Federer Advances, Williams Eliminated at Cincinnati Masters, Joint Korean Women’s Basketball Team Annihilates Host Indonesia at Asian Games and NJ Sports Betting Makes $40.6 Million in July

Roger Federer advances to the third round of the Cincinnati Masters after beating German Peter Gojowczyk 6-4, 6-4. The Associated Press quotes Federer on being back at the Cincinnati Masters, which he hasn’t played since winning in 2015.

“It doesn’t feel like I have been away for so long here from Cincinnati,” Federer said. “I guess the wheel keeps turning. It’s not like I missed two years of tennis. It was a great pleasure to be back.”

Serena Williams, who also hasn’t competed at the tournament since winning in 2015, was eliminated after losing 6-3, 2-6, 6-3 eighth-seeded Czech player Petra Kvitova in the second round.

“You know, this is a long comeback,” she said. “I just began. I just started — definitely at the very, very beginning. I’m getting there, and I’m going to just continue to work hard, and hopefully, I’ll start winning more matches.”

The Korean women’s basketball team, composed of players from both North and South Korea, dominated host country Indonesia 108-40 yesterday at the Asian Games. The top scorer of the game was North Korean Ro Suk Yong, who posted 22 points in Jakarta, according to Channel NewsAsia. Korea’s coach Lee Moon-kyu said that despite not having much time to practice as a unified team, the players had enough in common to succeed.

"We haven't had a lot of time to work on our team chemistry but we speak the same language and we are all on the same page. North or South Korean, we all have the same desire to win."

The AP reports that New Jersey casinos and racetracks brought in $40.6 million in sports betting revenue for July, the first full month that it was legal in the state. Also, it was announced this morning that Atlantic City’s Golden Nugget casino was approved by State Division of Gaming Enforcement Director David Rebuck to offer sports betting.
