Tony Yoka, Ligue 1, Djokovic-Tsitsipas, Tour of Italy, French Grand Prix: The set for Sunday May 15

What you may have missed between last night and this morning

1. Boxing – Heavy: Stoppage for Yoka

Until now, Tony Yoka was unbeaten among professionals (11 wins in 11 fights). But the Olympic heavyweight champion fell on a bone on Saturday night. Opposed to the very powerful Martin Bakole, the French took very violent blows from the start and was never able to reverse the course of the fight. He finally bowed on a split decision of the judges, conceding a defeat which does not suffer from any dispute.

At the bottom of the table, it’s almost over for Bordeaux (20th), held in check by Lorient (0-0), and it sent very bad for Saint-Étienne (19th), dominated by Reims (1-2) and now preceded by Metz (18th).

He took the time he needed, but Novak Djokovic did indeed achieve his ends. On Saturday, the world number 1 got the better of a catchy Casper Ruud in the semi-finals of the Rome tournament (6-4, 6-3), winning his thousandth victory on the ATP circuit on this occasion. The Serb has thus joined a very closed circle, which includes Jimmy Connors, Ivan Lendl, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. In the final, he will face Stefanos Tsitsipas.
