1) Don’t miss The Sports Rabbi’s weekly column in The Jerusalem Post about Israel Tennis Player Julia Glushko, “GLUSHKO CREDITS MORE TIME IN ISRAEL FOR RECENT RETURN TO FORM ON COURT” – With the US Open coming up at the end of August, Glushko’s eyes are set on qualifying once again for a Grand Slam, something that has eluded her since 2014. The 28-year-old is going through a renaissance of late, winning three International Tennis Federation tournaments over the past two months. Picking up singles titles in Thailand, Singapore and Granby, Canada, Glushko was also a finalist in a pair of other competitions as well. With Shahar Pe’er retiring last year, Glushko seems ready to grab the mantle as Israel’s top female tennis player.

2) The European Swimming Championships are currently taking place in Glasgow while the athletic competitions will begin on Monday. The Sports Rabbi will have all of the latest updates from Scotland right here.
