Important Current Affairs Questions and Answers: 10th September 2019

1. Bianca Andreescu won the 2019 US Open Women's Singles in New York.
(10th September 2019 Current Affairs Questions and Answers)

Serena Williams’s grand-slam woes continued night as she was beaten in the US Open final for the second successive year. And once again her conqueror was a fearless young thruster from the next generation.

After Naomi Osaka outplayed Williams last year on Arthur Ashe Stadium, it was the turn of 19-year-old Bianca Andreescu on Saturday, who produced a near-flawless performance and lived up to Williams’s description of her as an “old soul”.

The main difference was that this remained a tennis match, rather than a psychological drama. Williams’s tennis might have faltered under the huge pressure she faced from an inspired Andreescu, but she never threatened to repeat last year’s run-in with chair umpire Carlos Ramos. There was no controversy – just one of the most phenomenal and complete displays from a newcomer that this sport has ever seen.

2. Charles Leclerc won the 2019 Italian Grand Prix.
(Important Current Affairs Questions of 10th September 2019)

Charles Leclerc celebrated a remarkable Italian Grand Prix victory and then recalled the day he was refused entry through the gates of Ferrari’s Maranello headquarters.

Aged just 21, Leclerc held off a Mercedes onslaught to become the youngest driver dressed in red to win Ferrari’s home race, ending a nine-year losing streak for the Italian team.

Following in the footsteps of Alberto Ascari, John Surtees, Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso, Leclerc became the 11th Ferrari driver to win here – and he did it at his first attempt.

The tifosi have a new hero. Formula One’s fanatical army spilt over on to the pit straight, lining up in their thousands at Monza to see Leclerc hoist the winner’s trophy into the air. Flares were lit, red, white and green ticker tape fell from the sky and giant Ferrari flags were unfurled as fans scaled the catch fencing just to get a glimpse of the team’s new star.

3. PM Modi opens first greenfield industrial smart city in Aurangabad.
