F1 Racing News- Verstappen beats Hamilton at Dutch GP, retakes championship lead: Verstappen held the lead from pole position at the start and dictated the race from that point on.

Tennis US Open News- #73 ranked Canadian Leylah Fernandez, 18, beats Kerber at US Open to follow Osaka upset: The unseeded Fernandez grabbed the last five games to defeat 2016 champion Angelique Kerber 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-2 in the fourth round Sunday in Louis Armstrong Stadium.
Just like against Osaka in Arthur Ashe Stadium two nights earlier, Fernandez dropped the opening set. Just like against Osaka, Fernandez trailed in the second set, too — this time, Kerber led by a break at 4-2.
But for the second match in a row on a big court, the 73rd-ranked Canadian got the crowd on her side, exulting each time she hit one of her on-the-run, impossible-angle groundstrokes. She’d pump a fist. She’d windmill her arms. And she got to do so repeatedly, ending up with a 45-28 edge in winners.

New scam using QR codes: Malaga Provincial Police Station is warning the public about a new type of fraud that cybercriminals are now committing using QR codes.
They have pointed out that when people go out anywhere, it is becoming more common to have to check prices – gyms, restaurants, cinemas, shops, platforms – by scanning the QR code provided, created with the aim of enabling their content to be read at high speed, but, according to the National Police, this type of code “has been exploited by computer scammers to use them in a criminal way, and obtain personal and / or banking data of the victims”.
