“Life is not just about winning and losing — it’s about developing and growing along the way,” says tennis champion and men’s singles number one Novak Djokovic (@djokernole), the top seeded contender at the US Open, kicking off this week in New York City. Off court, Novak is committed to his healthy lifestyle. “To feel good and to perform like a true champion, no matter where we play the game of our lives, we need to sync our physical, mental and emotional selves.” What’s next on the horizon? “You would be surprised how many goals and plans I have,” Novak says. “There are so many things I would still love to learn, to accomplish and to taste. I hope every one of my future endeavors will be intertwined with love, which doesn’t cost anything, but is so powerful on so many levels.”

Guess How Many Zika Cases Showed Up At The Olympics?
Not 1,000. Not 50. Not even 10.
“There have so far been no laboratory confirmed cases of Zika virus in spectators, athletes or anyone associated with the Olympics,” the World Health Organization said Thursday on its website.
Now, no cases doesn’t mean no one caught Zika at the Summer Games. About 80 percent of people who get infected don’t know it. They don’t have any symptoms. And those who do get sick often have only mild symptoms. So the vast majority of cases go unreported.
But so far, it’s looking like predictions from computer models were pretty much spot on: Zika wasn’t a big threat in Rio de Janeiro during the Olympics.
