Li Na The French Open champion wasn't afraid to sack her husband as her coach when first-round exits became the norm. Now, Dane Michael Mortensen must be fearing for his job after Li's humiliating opening-round loss to unknown Romanian teenager Simona Halep at the US Open. A year that started so triumphantly has fast spiralled downwards for the 29-year-old. 'Now I even lose all the confidence on the court,' she said. 'I was feeling, 'Oh, tennis is just too tough for me'.' Barack Obama Nothing seems to be going right for the US president right now. He had to change the date of his address to a joint session of Congress after a spat with House Speaker John Boehner.

And polls showed the president's approval dropping to all-time lows, with a CNN/ORC International poll saying it is down at 34 per cent. Henry Tang Ying-yen The chief secretary's image took another hit after he said it was 'completely rubbish' that people's rights were violated during Vice-Premier Li Keqiang's visit. Last week the presumed chief executive front-runner said he had reflected on his August 19 comment - which prompted public outcry and criticism from local media - but he refused to retract it.
