'What the fudge': Tomic underarm serve stuns Kyrgios

Nick Kyrgios

"I don't think there's ever been a player like BT (Tomic)", Kyrgios, another of Australia's more mercurial talents, told reporters.

Two of the most controversial tennis players in the game today have, perhaps unsurprisingly, been involved in a freakish blink-and-you'll-miss-it contentious moment during an exhibition match at the Kooyong Classic.

While Australian cricket has suffered its share of embarrassment over the past 12 months, that's just a small slice of what tennis has endured over recent years through the dubious exploits of Bernard Tomic and Nick Kyrgios.

Squaring off for the first time in their careers as they prepare for next week's Australian Open, Tomic dominated his higher-ranked opponent to win 6-3 6-4, as he finished off the match in weird circumstances.

Police Believe Bird Box Challenge Resulted in Car Crash
Police are recommending charges of reckless driving. "It really puts everybody at risk", said Travis Lyman of the Layton police. Amazingly, no one was injured-though this story could have had a much darker tone had she struck the innocent driver head-on.


US Open quarter-finalist John Millman plays Argentine Federico Delbonis.

He is also relaxed about his form heading into the first Grand Slam of the season next week.

The insane conclusion to the match left some fans scratching their heads, while others were just glad it had come to an end.

"It's looking good for Australia, we have a lot of players, all playing with different style, but looking strong".

Sarri tells Chelsea hierarchy to sign two players
He did say if Alvaro Morata leaves, with loan moves to Sevilla and Atletico Madrid mooted, Chelsea would need a replacement. Willian was on Thursday linked with Barcelona, but Sarri ruled out the prospect of the Brazilian departing this month.


"I guess it's not doing what I've been doing", said a player who quit the 2018 season in October with an elbow injury and then played basketball and worked with his charity in the off-season.

"It was a lot of fun just to get back out there", the often edgy Kyrgios, who has slipped to 51 in the world, said.

Playing his first event since the US Open in September, Nadal opens his bid for an 18th major title against Australian wildcard playoff victor James Duckworth, whose wretched first-round draws at the slams continued.

Kyrgios, who was knocked out in the second round at Brisbane last week, was beaten 6-3, 6-4 by friend and fellow comeback candidate Bernard Tomic in an all-Australian battle.

Several inches of snow possible Friday night, heaviest amounts south
Heading to the Chiefs game? Snow showers will linger Sunday night and into Monday morning before conditions dry out. In parts of the 77 corridor and Southside, ice accumulation on top of some accumulations of snow will be possible.


"It was good to get out on court. I'm okay now (with tennis)".
