Brady stunned Ash Barty in the belated first match in Brisbane.
2020 didn’t begin at a happy note for World No 1 Ashleigh Barty as she lost her opening match to American giant-killer Jennifer Bardy at the Brisbane International. Brady, backed up by her victory over Maria Sharapova on Tuesday, defeated Barty in straight sets on Pat Rafter Arena 6-4, 7-6 (7-4). Barty had to wait until Tuesday to begin her Australian summer.

Her baseline game was crucial for success. She was swinging hard throughout with a rusty Barty who was unable to break her rhythm.

Alan Jones’s furious letters to politicians are full of rants.
Alan Jones, who is a Sydney broadcaster, seems to be permanently outraged with NSW and federal ministers. He has urged them to follow his words on planning, dams, wind farms, and other projects. He wrote on August 6th to Rob Stokes, who is the New South Wales minister for planning and public spaces. Alan said in his letter than Sydney is turning into a joke. Queensland and Brisbane are wiping the floor. According to Alan, Rob should think about it and make big decisions. Alan has been an essential voice in the political world. With his top-rating show and a vast audience comprising of older voters and traders, he has become the best way to gain the attention of decision-makers in both business and politics. His demands are often heard and responded to. Politicians, even on the higher post, try not to ignore him. However, he also had his fair share of controversies, which led to defamation payouts, demands from his employer, and on-air apologies.
Ignoring concerns of financial burden, Queensland weighs the Olympic bid.
Annastacia Palaszczuk, who is the premier of Queensland, was delighted to announce the bid for the Olympics in Queensland. She said that this could be the greatest thing that has ever happened in Queensland. There is a possibility that south-east Queensland will stage the Olympics in 2032. The abandoned sporting venues of Athens and Rio have shown how such events can dry up resources without long term benefits. On top of the lessons from history, Queensland is already in a lot of debts. Annastacia Palaszczuk thinks that the Olympic Games can bring prosperity for the state. The Olympics that happened in Sydney are still fresh in the memories of many people. Also, Melbourne and Brisbane have hosted Commonwealth games in the 21st century that gave a lot of experience to the country. South-east Queensland has Brisbane, the Gold Coast, and the Sunshine Coast. The total cost of the games will come close to $5.3bn (US$3.6bn), which is less in comparison to the cost of the Tokyo Olympics, which are clocking close to $12bn.

WACA puts up Perth’s case to host India.
Next summer, India is going to be playing Test series in Australia. Christina Matthews, who is the chief executive of WACA, said in her statement that there is no reason that Perth misses out to host India. SCG, MCG, and almost certainly Adelaide Oval are all set to host India in the four-Test series. Brisbane and Perth are locked in a two-way battle for the test that is yet to find a venue. The venue which does not get a Test against India has to host a lowly-ranked Afghanistan instead. The dominant record of Australia on the juicy Gabba pitch is in favor of Brisbane. Australia had not lost even a single test in Brisbane since 1988. Players want to play the test against India in Gabba. However, the stadium has attracted poor attendance in recent years.
