Osaka & Djokovic Australian Open Champions, Raptors Fire Saunders, Tahoe Hosts NHL, Bruins 90’s Style


Naomi Osaka beat Jennifer Brady to win the Australian Open for the second time (also won in 2019). Osaka now has four Grand Slam singles titles.

In the men’s final, Novak Djokovic beat Daniil Medvedev to claim his 18th Grand Slam singles title, just two away from the record held by Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Djokovic clearly likes the Australian Open, as this win marks his ninth championship (in nine appearances).


The Toronto Raptors fired Ryan Saunders and expect to replace him with the Raptors assistant coach Chris Finch.


The NHL experimented with outdoor hockey and hosted two games over the weekend in Lake Tahoe. Other than an eight-hour delay due to the sun’s effect on ice conditions, the games were a hit with hockey fans. The Boston Bruins even got into the spirit of the weekend by showing up in full 1990’s attire.

Colorado Avalanche beat the Vegas Golden Knights 3-2
