  • Djokovic recovers as match suspended, Serena wins

    After three hours and two minutes of twilight combat, Novak Djokovic and Kevin Anderson were forced off court with their last 16 clash tantalisingly poised at two sets all and their Wimbledon audience begging for more.

Serena had earlier ousted big sister Venus in the battle of the Williams siblings, while Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka had claimed comfortable victories.

  • Honeymoon over for Greek couple

    Newlyweds Valasia Limnioti and Konstantinos Patronis' long-planned "dream trip" to the US ended in New York City, where their three-week honeymoon quickly turned into a nightmare: Their Greek-issued credit and debit cards were suddenly declined and they were left penniless. The couple skipped a few meals before spending their last dollars on dinner at McDonald's. Strangers from two Greek Orthodox churches in the city's Queens borough came to the rescue, giving them survival cash until their flight home to Greece on Friday. Two Greek banks issued them cards before the trip - a Visa credit card and a debit card.

  • McKinnon payout could exceed $10m

    Alex McKinnon could expect a compensation payout even greater than the $10 million being spoken of within two years over the tackle that ended his NRL career last year, a leading litigation lawyer believes. On the Nine Network's 60 Minutes program on Sunday night, McKinnon indicated for the first time he is considering legal action over the spinal injury he suffered in March last year.

  • Chinese tourists boost Thai economy but stir outrage

    Accused of urinating in public, spitting on the street, or kicking a sacred temple bell -- free-spending Chinese tourists are receiving a mixed welcome as their soaring numbers help the kingdom's creaking economy. Last month it was a photo of a young girl peeing in the grounds of Bangkok's Grand Palace that triggered the latest round of enraged, and sometimes racist, comments as Thai social media users claimed she was Chinese. In March a Thai model's video of tourists from China jumping the queue at an airport was viewed more than two million times and saw a similarly angry rant against Thailand's largest group of foreign holidaymakers.

  • Germany dismisses Greece bid for bailout after 'No' vote

    Germany on Monday dismissed Greece's bid to swiftly seal a new debt deal after the country delivered a resounding 'No' to more austerity, appearing little moved by the surprise resignation of the Greek finance minister. Yanis Varoufakis, a firebrand who had infuriated European counterparts, announced he was resigning at Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras's request in a move to placate creditors. Varoufakis's departure came a day after Greek voters overwhelmingly rejected more austerity required by international creditors under a bailout deal, heightening fears of a "Grexit".

  • ?hina's influence grows as Russian crisis rocks Central Asia

    At a bazaar in Tajikistan's capital Dushanbe, once a far-flung outpost of the Soviet Union, cheap goods from neighbouring China are helping offset the pain caused by Russia's economic meltdown. As low world prices for Russian energy exports and Western sanctions over Ukraine stir economic trouble in Russia, Tajikistan has seen its national somoni currency weaken and thousands of migrants drift back home to a mostly jobless environment. Last month the impoverished Central Asian country's national bank announced remittances -- mostly transfers from Russia where close to half of Tajikistan's working age males are believed to work -- had fallen by over 40 percent comparing the first quarters of 2014 and 2015.
