Japan’s tennis sensation Naomi Osaka triumphed on home turf after a break due to mental health concerns. The US women’s soccer team crushed New Zealand 6-1, bouncing back from a 3-0 loss to Sweden in their first match. In golf updates, both Bryson DeChambeau (USA) and Jon Rahm (Spain) tested positive for Covid-19 and are now out of the tournament. Patrick Reed will replace DeChambeau, while Spain opted not to substitute Rahm, who tested positive for the second time in two months.
