Jannik Sinner beats Novak Djokovic in Australian Open men's singles semi-final in 4 sets. 33 match winning streak ended. First time Novak has lost a semi-final there having won 10 in a row. Before today, his last loss at the Australian Open was in 2018.

Daniil Medvedev has spent 24 hours on court at this year's Australian Open. More than anyone at a Grand Slam ever. Medvedev won three five set matches to get into the final vs. Jannik Sinner. Medvedev won the first two sets but lost the last three. You have to feel for Medvedev.

“I brought all my equipment up and then they were on the spider cam, so they just swung the spider cam over. I had my equipment set up and I vacuumed up the bees into a live-catch cage,” Davis said. “Then I can take them out... and release them into one of my hives that I have. They're set up just for this type of thing.

“This time of year is swarming season, so they go everywhere. And I'm just happy to be there for them so they could not have any incidents.”

THANK YOU. I was worried the tennis knuckleheads would just have them all killed, so this was a pleasant surprise.

Yeah this is what usually happens with bees these days. Dogs and cats usually get sent to a local pound if they're strays.  

 

Just don't ask what happens when a raccoon or a possum gets caught...  😕

Rafa Nadal has probably played his last match at the French Open.   He got straight setted by Zvervev and just looked like the magic was gone. 

He leaves RG with a career mark for 112-4.   

He's skipping Wimbledon and will try to qualify for Spain's Olympic team, so he can play one more time in Paris.

Toughest challenge in sport beating Rafael Nadal at the French Open. The four losses:

Robin Soderling: Fourth Round, 2009. Roger Federer beat Robin Sodering in the final to win the French Open for the first time and the Career Grand Slam. In the past Nadal walloped Federer there.

Novak Djokovic: Quarter Final, 2015.

Novak Djokovic: Semi Final, 2021.

Alexander Zverev: First round, 2024.

Defending champion Novak Djokovic has withdrawn from the French Open before his quarter-final with a knee injury.

The scan revealed Djokovic has "torn medial meniscus" in his right knee. Wimbledon and the Olympics are in jeopardy there.
