    Sportsmail Reporter Host commentator 20:30 Welcome! The road ends here... It's a cloudy afternoon in New York and the men's final of the US Open is roughly 30 minutes from beginning! Spanish phenom Carlos Alcaraz will look to continue his high-wire act after five-set wins vs. Marin Cilic, Jannik Sinner and Frances Tiafoe. On the other side, Norwegian Casper Ruud enters the final after more comfortable wins vs. Matteo Berrettini and Karen Khachanov. The winner of the match will not only take the US Open - they'll become the No. 1 ranked player in the world. It should be a great match between two of the brightest young talents in the sport. {"id":"11201689","channel":"/sport","pageUrl":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/live/article-11201689/US-Open-final-Casper-Ruud-vs-Carlos-Alcaraz-LIVE-action-Arthur-Ashe.html","status":"running","greenBox":{"body":""},"lastDate":1662924614950}
    Rafael Nadal was forced to withdraw from the Wimbledon semi-finals on Thursday due to an abdominal tear he suffered during his quarterfinal match against American Taylor Fritz. Nadal’s announcement may not have come as a huge surprise to those who watched him labor through the latter parts of his 3-6, 7-5, 3-6, 7-5, 7-6 (10-4) marathon win over Fritz, but the news is a shock nonetheless. Nadal’s withdrawal ends a historic run, both as the 36-year-old Spaniard was seeking to add yet another grand slam to his record-setting collection of 22 titles and he was on course to win a calendar grand slam, having already won in both Australia and Paris this year.

    Novak Djokovic wins his ninth Australian Open and accumulates 18 Grand Slam 0:59 (CNN) – Novak Djokovic delivered a masterclass in power and precision and beat Daniil Medvedev in the Australian Open final.
