The Latest: Medvedev takes 2-set lead in Australian final
Daniil Medvedev has taken a 6-2, 7-6 (5) lead in the Australian Open final against Rafael Nadal after a dramatic second set that was interrupted by a court invader and contained four service breaks. Nadal was trying to serve for the set in the ninth game about 1 1/2 hours into the match and was facing a break point when a protester jumped from the stands into the playing arena at Medvedev’s end. Nadal saved that point to get back to deuce, wasted a set point and then dropped the service game to allow Medvedev back into the set.news.yahoo.com
