rankings. for bradley, it's this fourth pga tour wind but this first in six years. paul frostick, bbc news. a lot has happened to me over these six years. the belly putter was a tougher transition than i thought and, you know, i kind of fell off the radar therefore a little while, and it's tough from going to being on ryder cup teams, being on presidents cup teams, to not even outside the top 100 in the world and that was difficult. i had to really work with my coach, darren maddy, and we put a schedule together and we worked hard to get back to this spot. i felt so calm today. tony finau has been named as the final member for the united states ryder cup squad by captainjim furyk. the 28—year—old has not won on the pga tour, but had top—10s at three majors this year, and has played well during the current fedexcup playoffs finishing tied for eighth at the bmw championship. the united states are current holders and head to paris for this year's event in late september having not won in europe since 1993.

the tourists, who have already lost the series 3—1, ended the day on 58—3, trailing england by 406 runs i've seen a few people go out on their own terms, it's obviously special, but to go out on your own terms when your last ever innings for england was 100. 0bviously tomorrow if we can top it off with a wind and a 4—1wind over the number one side in the world would make it even more special —— win. the international tennis federation have defended umpire carlos ramos over his decision to penalise serena williams for her conduct during saturday's us open final. the 23—time grand slam champion was warned for being coached from the stands, docked a point and then a game during her defeat to naomi 0saka at flushing meadows. journalist stephanie myles, who was at the match, says the row has polarised opinions. if you were a serena fan before

this, then you'rejust if you were a serena fan before this, then you're just defending her to the end. clearly all the alphabet soup of organisations in tennis are doing this to the detriment of her opponent, and throwing the umpire under the bus and everything. it's sad...i under the bus and everything. it's sad... i don't know how productive that is. but if you did not like serena before, and if you remember the incident in 2009 at the us open, which was worse than this one, then it justifies everything which was worse than this one, then itjustifies everything you think you know about her and you just go in the opposite direction. she's a lwa ys in the opposite direction. she's always been a polarising figure, a lot of it unfair, but right now it's just exacerbating that gap between the two sides. if you've got kids watching this, and you're a family person and you wa nt and you're a family person and you want your kids to grow up playing tennis, what sort of view does this put across? that's kind of the thing, isn't it? we have to remember too that when all this started to happen, she'd

lost the first set rather handily. the thing about serena is she's a peerless competitor, not necessarily in the women's game but in tennis generally. this is the flipside of that, the downside of that. so again, she's saying," i'm a mother and i'm standing up for my daughter", all that sort of stuff, pulling out every reason in the book to justify her behaviour. i think kids are going to remember this. given that serena, in this late stage of her career, is very clearly building a couple of platforms for herself. she's grinding herself and also putting herself out there as a promoter of women's rights, the rights of women of colour, working mothers and she's been working really, really ha rd mothers and she's been working really, really hard at that at every level and i really think this incidentjust goes against all of the things that she's been preaching to everybody since she came back from her maternity leave. onto football now: there were uefa nations league

support them. and today we lost the game, but as you see in the first 30 minutes, they are amazing. for me, they followed what i've said for a week. they are following my philosophy top, gonna. —— they are following my philosophy. italian moto 2 rider romano fenati could face criminal charges after he grabbed the brake lever of italian compatriot stefano manzi when the two were racing at more than 200km per hour in san marino on sunday. fenati has since apologised saying it was a disgraceful gesture, although he explained that he was reacting to an earlier driving manoeuvre from manzi. he was disqualified from the race and banned for the next two grand prix but his team have sacked him and the team he was going to join next season have ripped up his contract. here's something you don't see very often,

1:55 am
the jets. for everything else go to the website and you can follow us on twitter. but from me and the rest of the sport today team, goodbye. hello there. full uk weather forecast coming up injust a moment, but first of all, i thought we'd cast an eye with what's going on on the other side of the atlantic. you might have heard, we have a major hurricane on our hands. this is hurricane florence, which is a very powerful category 4 hurricane, with sustained winds of 140mph. but it's forecast to strengthen, up to 155 mph with 190 mph gusts, and that is heading to the east coast of the united states. landfall probably thursday night around north carolina. it's going to cause big, big problems. just to the north of florence, we've got an area of cloud that extends of miles across the atlantic, right over to the united kingdom. yes, it's a massive weather front, or a couple really. it's going to be pushing southwards, bringing some heavy rain. the rain always heaviest
1:56 am
across the hills and coasts of north—west england and wales. to the east of higher ground, it's one of those fronts where the rain's probably not going to amount to too much. but nevertheless there will be some damp weather getting into the east of the pennines, for example. given it stays quite windy overnight, temperatures will stay up into double figures. and this massive long weather front marks the dividing line between some coolish air that we've got flowing into northern areas, and air that's come in more from the mid—tropical atlantic across the south. so a lot of cloud around, but we are going to see the highest temperatures across southern counties of england. now, i wouldn't even rule out an odd spot of drizzle towards the coasts and hills in the south to start the day. but, for many of us, probably a dry start. now, through the day we'll see outbreaks of rain pushing southwards across wales, quite murky through the bristol channel for a time. and there'll be further showers in western scotland as well. temperature—wise, coolish air
1:57 am
across the north of the uk, with temperatures between around 13 and 16 celsius. but, further south, well, the temperatures still into the low 20s. 22, 20 three degrees, something like that around the london area. now, through tuesday night, we're going to see that weather front have a pulse of energy running along it, and that will push the rain back northwards, back into north—west england, back into the north of wales. that's where it starts the day on wednesday, and then wednesday, the rain will very slowly trickle its way southwards, where it will become confined to southern counties of england to take us into wednesday afternoon. so it will stay quite dull and damp across these southern areas, with the rain perhaps even a bit slower to clear than this. and temperature—wise, 16 degrees in london. so those temperatures around seven degrees lower. it is going to be a much colder—feeling day in the south, particularly on wednesday. the rest of the week sees a bit more sunshine in the south, so temperatures do tend to recover, but the north—west will see further showers from time to time. that's your weather. welcome to bbc news, broadcasting to viewers in north america and around the globe. my name is martin stanford. our top stories: kim meets donald, the sequel. reports a second summit
