A resurgent Rafael Nadal beat Milos Raonic to reach his first grand slam semifinal in three years at the Australian Open yesterday Jan Vertonghen Hotspur Shirt , while Serena Williams eyed a final with her sister Venus.
A resurgent Rafael Nadal beat Milos Raonic to reach his first grand slam semifinal in three years at the Australian Open yesterday, while Serena Williams eyed a final with her sister Venus.

Nadal hasn’t contested a major semifinal since he won the last of his 14 grand slam titles at the 2014 French Open, but he never looked like losing to Raonic, the Canadian world No. 3.

Spain’s Nadal yelled in delight as he completed a 6-4, 7-6 (97) Toby Alderweireld Hotspur Shirt , 6-4 win to set up a semifinal with Grigor Dimitrov, with old rival Roger Federer potentially waiting in the final.

“Even though I had a great career, I had a lot of tough moments,” said Nadal, who struggled with injury last year and failed to reach any of the grand slam quarterfinals.

“That makes me enjoy this even more.”

Nadal preferred to focus on his next match with Dimitrov rather than Federer Danny Rose Hotspur Shirt , but he paid tribute to the Swiss legend for his amazing run at this year’s Australian Open.

“Let me enjoy today, the victory, being in semifinal. For me is great news again. It’s a good start of the season,” he told reporters. “Now I have a very tough match against Dimitrov.

“Whatever happens on the other side of the draw, I think it is great for tennis that Roger is there again after an injury Kieran Trippier Hotspur Shirt , after a lot of people talked that probably he would never be back.

“The real thing is that he’s back and he’s probably ready to win again, fighting again to win a major. That’s good for the fans because Roger is a legend of our sport. I am happy to be there, too. I am focused on my semifinal.”

Nadal has a 7-1 head-to-head record with Dimitrov, the Bulgarian 15th seed dubbed ‘Baby Fed’ for his Federer-like playing style who earlier ousted Belgium’s David Goffin 6-3, 6-2 Hugo Lloris Hotspur Shirt , 6-4.

Federer will play fellow Swiss Stan Wawrinka in today’s semifinal with the very real prospect of a ninth grand slam final against Nadal, and the first since the 2011 French Open.

The women’s competition also has a retro feel after Serena Williams beat Britain’s Johanna Konta 6-2, 6-3 to set up a semifinal with an emotional Mirjana Lucic-Baroni — 19 years after they last met as fellow teenage prodigies.

Williams, 35, has come a long way since her last meeting with Lucic-Baroni in the second round at Wimbledon in 1998 Blank Hotspur Shirt , when they were both 16 and without a trophy to their names.

While Williams is now eyeing an Open-era-record 23rd grand slam title and a return to world No. 1, the Croatian is into her first major semifinals since 1999 after her career was derailed by personal trauma.

There was little disappointment from Konta despite her steamrollering by Williams, who was able to raise her game to counter her opponent’s court speed and aggressive striking.

Despite Williams having only 45 percent success with her first serves, Konta could only break once, in the second set Customized Hotspur Shirt , and the American quickly hit back with two breaks of her own.

“I think it was probably one of the best experiences of my life,” said Konta, 25, who idolized Williams as a child. “I think there’s so many things I can learn from that, so many things I can look to improve on Kyle Walker-Peters Shirt , also acknowledge some things that I did well.”

Also on the center court, Dimitrov soared into his second major semifinal with his straight-sets win over Goffin, his 10th victory in a row after his trophy run this month in Brisbane.

“I feel like I have all the tools to go further and my job isn’t over yet,” Dimitrov said. “I’m looking forward to my match. I think I’m prepared. I think I’m ready to go the distance. I don’t shy away from that. I’m confident enough to say that as I feel good physically, and overall on the court.”

BEIJING, Feb. 2 (Xinhua) -- Toutiao, one of China's most popular mobile news apps, confirmed Thursday that it has acquired Flipagram, a U.S. video creation app.

Though no financial details were disclosed, Toutiao sources said the deal enabled it to run Flipagram's products and operations.

Flipagram allows users to stitch photos and videos into montages with background music, and was once considered a serious threat to Instagram.

After the acquisition, Toutiao will integrate Flipagram videos into its own personalized content feeds in an effort to expand its international audience.

Toutiao, which literally translates into "Today's Top Headlines," was founded in 2012 and has more than 600 million active users. The company began to explore the international market in 2015 and has expanded its reach to Japan, India, Brazil, North America and Southeast Asia, by creating its own ventures or through acquisitions.

Last year, Toutiao's founder Zhang Yiming said that going global would remain one of the company's key strategies.

Guo Quanzhong, a senior economist with the Chinese Academy of Governance, said that the Belt and Road initiative had brought about new opportunities for China's Internet companies to expand overseas.

"We encourage more Chinese companies to build adequate platforms to tell stories about China and spread China's voice to a global audience," Guo said.

Every Thursday afternoon at 1:30, Liu Huizhong arrives at room 301 in the China Film Archive in Beijing. One day at the end of 2015, he was reviewing the digital versions of two old films with two other censors.

One was Taitai Wansui (Long live my wife) Harry Winks Shirt , produced in 1947. Liu gave the film a score of 62.

"I let it pass," he shouted to his colleague a meter away.
