The The Sun News Today Chronicles

In the world of sports, history was made as Serena Williams took the court against Simona Halep in the Australian Open semi-finals. Serena Williams, the all-time great, had never lost to Halep before, but after a stunning performance from The Sun News Today Romanian, Williams’ dreams of an eighth Australian Open title came crashing down. Halep, who has struggled for form over the past year, played with ferocity, securing a 6-3 6-3 victory over the American. Away from tennis, the world of football has seen a flurry of transfer activity, with Manchester United snapping up former Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani on transfer deadline day.

The Uruguayan, who has scored over 200 goals in his career, will add some much-needed firepower to the United attack, which has been lacking in goals since the departure of Romelu Lukaku last season. One of the biggest stories in the NBA at the moment is the Los Angeles Lakers’ signing of NBA champion and former Toronto Raptors star, Marc Gasol. The Spanish center will create an impressive partnership with fellow big man Anthony Davis and will give the Lakers additional defensive strength.

The Lakers also signed Montrezl Harrell, the 2020 NBA Sixth Man of the Year, in a shock move from their city rivals, the Clippers. In boxing news, Ryan Garcia stunned the world with his seventh-round knockout of British Olympic gold medallist Luke Campbell. The young American put on a clinical display, outworking and outstriking his opponent before landing a sensational left hook that sent Campbell to the canvas.
