CNN —With a bird’s eye view from his chair, umpire Damien Dumusois spotted a poorly pigeon on Court Suzanne-Lenglen and flew into action. Pictures show Dumusois picking up the bird with a towel during the third-round match, which Medvedev won under the roof on a rain-hit day to reach the last 16. “I hope the bird was okay, it was not looking good,” Medvedev told reporters afterwards. He was very gentle, I think important, and I hope the bird is fine and they take it to the vet clinic. I don’t know, we need to ask what happened after.”The pigeon was caught with the help of a towel.

CNN —Rafael Nadal had an “emotional day” playing what was likely to be his final professional match in the Spanish capital, losing 7-5 6-4 against Czech Republic’s Jiří Lehečka at the Madrid Open. Before the tournament, Nadal said that he was determined to play in Madrid – where he is a record five-time champion – one final time, despite doubts about whether he was physically ready to compete at a high level. “Today is an emotional day, of course, today is an unforgettable day in terms of saying goodbye to Madrid,” Nadal told reporters. The tournament paid tribute to Nadal’s five titles at the Madrid Open after the match, unfurling banners with photos of his victories in 2005, 2010, 2013, 2014 and 2017. “It has been a very positive week, winning three matches, playing four matches at a high level of tennis,” said Nadal.

Khachanov, as a result, earned two break points and would eventually capitalize on the second, thanks to a Medvedev double fault. 4 was frustrated with two calls from the line judge on his baseline while serving at 1-2 in the second set. The first disagreement came after the 28-year-old returned a crushing winner from a Monfils forehand, which was called out by the line judge. The very next point, the same line judge called Monfils’ shot in to the dismay of Medvedev, who left the ball expecting an out call to come. He can make a mistake as well, everybody can.”Mohamed Lahyani had to ask Medvedev not to shout at the line judge in Wednesday's match.

The 22-year-old’s remarkable comeback capped off a special tournament for Sinner, one in which he had defeated world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the semifinals on route to his first-ever grand slam final and ended with his maiden major title. For Medvedev, it was a cruel echo of the 2022 Australian Open final he lost to Rafael Nadal when he had once again let a two-set lead slip. Following his defeat against Sinner, the 27-year-old made some unwanted history by becoming the first player in the Open Era to lose multiple grand slam finals in such fashion.

He’s the first Italian to win the Australian Open title in what could be a generational shift in tennis. For 2021 U.S. Open champion Medvedev, the loss was his fifth in six major finals. Nobody had done that on the way to an Australian Open final since Pete Sampras in 1995. In the sixth game of the fifth set, Sinner had triple breakpoint against a fatiguing Medvedev.

The 22-year-old Sinner will now contest the first grand slam final of his career having ended Djokovic’s bid for an 11th title in Melbourne. It also means that Djokovic’s pursuit of an outright record 25th grand slam title is put on hold after he was outplayed by the Italian across their three hour, 22-minute contest. “It was a very, very tough match,” Sinner said in his on-court interview. “I guess this is one of the worst grand slam matches I’ve ever played – at least that I remember. Indeed, this was the first time in his career that Djokovic failed to produce a break-point chance in a completed grand slam match, according to Opta.
