Temperature at US Open Prompts 'Extreme Heat Policy', Aaron Rodgers Signs $130 Million Extension with Packers and Unified Korea to Face China for Women's Basketball Gold at Asian Games

The U.S. Open continues amid a heatwave in New York, where the tournament is being held, leading officials to keep an 'extreme heat policy' in effect, according to the Associated Press. This involves the allowing of a 10-minute break between the second and third sets for the women's singles matches, and between the third and fourth set for the men's singles matches. Highlights from yesterday include Rafael Nadal's 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 win over Canadian Vasek Pospisil, Kevin Anderson's 6-2, 6-4, 6-4 win over France's Jérémy Chardy, Sloane Stephens 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 win over Ukraine's Anhelina Kalinina and both Venus and Serena Williams advancing to the next round. The two Williams sisters will play each other on Saturday.

ESPN reports that two-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers has signed a four-year $134 million extension with the Green Bay Packers. The deal involves incentives based on helping the team reach the playoffs and Rodgers finishing in the top three of quarterback ratings, which could see him earning between $176 million and $180 million.

The unified North and South Korean women's basketball team is playing against China for the gold medal at the Asian Games, The Jakarta Post reports. The two teams play Saturday after China beat Japan 86-74 today, and Korea beat Chinese Taipei 89-66.
