Fourth-seeded Naomi Osaka reaches the semifinals of the Western & Southern Open on Wednesday but withdraws a few hours later in a call for racial justice, drawing quick support from other players. Soon after, the whole tournament is put on hold for a day as a result of protests over the shooting by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Sunday of Jacob Blake, a Black man, apparently in the back while three of his children looked on.
