  Lis Smith says the future of the Democratic Party is local and young Smith told Insider what she looks for when scouting talent, and why the decline of local news has made it harder for new candidates to break through.She's taken gambles on underdogs like Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, advised establishment stalwarts such as former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe and former Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, and mostly survived the cauldron of New York politics, working on both ends of the long-simmering feud between former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Nick Kyrgios and Thanasi Kokkinakis have triumphed in the men's doubles final at the Atlanta Open on Sunday (local time).

The tournament's second-seeds beat fellow Australian pair Jason Kubler and Johns Peers 7-6 (7-4) 7-5.

Kyrgios and Kokkinakis, nicknamed The Special Ks, teamed up to win a fairytale Australian Open crown earlier this year.

They were forced to abandon plans to play at Wimbledon in July but managed to reunite in Atlanta despite Kyrgios being unable to play singles due to a lingering injury.

The duo overcame a stern test in the semi-finals against Jack Sock and Rajeev Ram to set up the all-Australian final.

Tennis player Nick Kyrgios' court date postponed by 3 weeks

  Tennis player Nick Kyrgios' court date postponed by 3 weeks CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Wimbledon tennis finalist Nick Kyrgios’ court date to face a common assault charge has been postponed by three weeks. The charge relates to an incident in January 2021 that was reported to Australian Capital Territory police in December. Kyrgios was initially expected to face ACT Magistrates Court on Aug. 2 — next Tuesday. But court officials said Friday that the case is now scheduled to be heard on Aug. 23. Kyrgios is not required to attend that court session if he is legally represented.

Kubler and Peers, who don't usually play together, made it to the final after beating fellow Aussies and recent Wimbledon champions Matthew Ebden and Max Purcell in the quarter-finals.

In the first set of the Atlanta Open final, neither side managed to break the other with Kyrgios and Kokkinakis edging the tie-break 7-4.

The second set followed a similar pattern with both pairs serving strongly before The Special Ks claimed a decisive break in what would be the final game of the match.

Kubler and Peers more than held their own in the final and will be left to rue failing to convert any of their four break points.
