The Joker takes another massive win to target fifth Aussie Open crown

In a five set thriller Novak Djokovic has cemented a spot in the Australian Open final to take place Sunday. Taking on Stan Wawrinka at Rod Laver Arena last night, Djokovic held on for 3 hours and 30 mins despite looking quite lethargic at times. The momentum shifted several times keeping people on the edge of their seats.

Djokovic saying, “I was ready for battle and we pushed each other to the limit.”

“I think I played well, but in the second set and fourth set, I just played a couple of loose games and I let him back into the match.

“My game depends on how I move and I think I was too defensive in the second set. And then in the fifth set I managed to stay consistent and tough at the right moments and I served well.’’

Djokovic will take on Andy Murray on Sunday. He has a 15-8 leads head-to-head with Murray but Murray will have a tad more rest so the showdown could be a really good one.

Actor Val Kilmer rushed to hospital

Val Kilmer was rushed to the hospital on Monday after a call to 911 was made from his Malibu home. Kilmer was said to be bleeding from his mouth. The reports are that Kilmer has been suffering from a throat tumour.

The Batman Forever actor was taken to the UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica where doctors performed surgery and he is now said to be recovering. The throat tumour does not appear to be a new report.

Kilmer found himself in a small claims court back on October and it was there that he told the judge he was unable to speak because his tongue was swollen. His family are reportedly upset because Kilmer has ignored the problem and now it has gotten much worse.

When he is in public he is often wearing a scarf around his neck and has lost a lot of weight and is much thinner than he used to be.
