Frances Tiafoe's first Grand Slam quarterfinal did not go as well as he would have hoped, but one of the highlights was the chance to play in Rod Laver Arena — with Laver himself sitting in the stands.
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Rafael Nadal is back to feeling healthy. Probably not a coincidence that he's back in the Australian Open semifinals.
Playing his familiar brand of court-covering, ball-bashing, opponent-frustrating tennis, Nadal claimed 20 of his first 23 service points and saved the only two break chances he faced, ending American Frances Tiafoe's best Grand Slam run with a dominating 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 victory Tuesday night.

That he did it with the hydrating help of pickle juice guzzled during changeovers to fend off cramps.
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Frances Tiafoe rolled up his white shirt's right sleeve, flexed his biceps and slapped the muscle five times. Then he pounded his chest and yelled, "Yeah! Let's go! Let's go! Come on!"
