league, now you wonder what is going to happen, if they have to find someone to happen, if they have to find someone else, but the shock will be so someone else, but the shock will be so big in the next few days i am not sure how the two clubs will function. thank you for that tonight. we will bring you more details on the story when we get it, with that search for that missing plane having been call awed for tonight. he may have followed the same path as his predecessor, but huddersfield's new manager jan siewert has promised to do things his own way — starting with keeping the club in the premier league. he replaces david wagner, who was also in charge of borussia dortmunds u23‘s before taking over, continuing the long and successful line of german coaches to come out of the club. patrick gearey reports. meetjan meet jan siewert, a meetjan siewert, a man so unknown to most british football fans he was mistaken ina to most british football fans he was mistaken in a crowd for someone called martin from wakefield. who then appeared before the realjan siewert in his own announcement
6:40 pm
video. it is martin from wakefield. jan has been borussia dortmund's second team manager, just like the man he replaces david wagner, meet the old boss, same —— new boss, same as the old i can't be compared to david wagner, he is a fantastic manager, now it is any new role, a new chapter, the most important thing is i am used to work with professional players, and so i would like to challenge myself. there is some symmetry in the obscurity, dortmund's habit of forging new talent at their training ground has led to a fascination with those overseeing the production line. of coursejurgen klopp's the most famous former teacher. he led borussia dortmund to two titles before he left in 2015. while he was there coach of the second team was david wagner who took huddersfield to the premier league. when he left daniel farker took over the reserve,
6:41 pm
he is now challenging for promotion with norwich. filling in for him was jan siewert, what is the philosophy behind the pattern. borussia dortmund is known for playing attacking minding football. they stand for good coaching education, they breed their own kind of style. in english football, there was lots of portuguese coach, lots of spanish coaches, at the moment it is a fashion to have a german coach. jan siewert might be concentrating on what is happening next season. huddersfield are out of the cup and bottom of the league, ten points from safety. the club say they have been planning this for some time. he might be unfamiliarto been planning this for some time. he might be unfamiliar to many but huddersfield know where he is another name making an impression is the greek youngster stefanos tsitsipas. he has become the
6:42 pm
youngest man to reach a grand slam semi final since novak djokovic 12 yea rs semi final since novak djokovic 12 years ago. he is certainly in esteemed company what else do we know about him? he is an impressive character on and off the court. he has really lit up this tournament so far. he is part of this young rising generation of stars, in the game, john. he has really impressed along with the likes of medvedev in the last year or so, this guy tsitsipas hot on his heels. he was destined for greatness. his mum used to play for greatness. his mum used to play for russia, his dad has coached him through his whole career, on the june yar ranks, he reached the quarterfinals of the junior grand slam, won the boys title at wimbledon before becoming thejunior number one. 2018 was his breakthrough year. beaten by rafa

nadal, he won the stockholm open. he reached the last 16 at wimbledon. he has achieved more than any greek in the sport. he has shot up the rankings, now 15th in the world and beating roger federer to reach the last eight in melbourne, an incredible achievement given he is only 20. he beat bautista-agut to get to the semifinals. you have been picking out some of the shots in his armoury. he spent a lot of his childhood watching roger federer videos on youtube. it is reflected in his gape. here is an example of some of the shots from court today. that backhand firing, the timing as well, was truly impeccable, against the guy that knocked andy murray out of the tournament. he is 611", he has a good touch and feel round the court. a lovely drop shot in the
6:44 pm
third set and then he has a big booming serve to match it up as well. winning in four and a first grand slam semifinal for the well. winning in four and a first grand slam semifinalfor the greek star. fascinating stuff. and we are talking about what he can produce on the court. it is worth pointing out some the interest he has away from the court, and certainly on some of the court, and certainly on some of the social media platform, he is very active, isn't he. he 5 here is a quick snapshot into his instagram. he gets to travel the world, for his profession, loves taking photo, loves a deep profound quote as well. 0ut some the interest he has away from the court, and certainly on some of the social media platform, he is very active, isn't he. he s here is a quick snapshot into his instagram. he gets to travel the world, for his profession, loves taking photo, loves a deep profound quote as well. this is from his @er, he says when you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes, when you photograph them this black and white you photograph their soul, deep and meaningful. this black and white you photograph theirsoul, deep and meaningful. he isa theirsoul, deep and meaningful. he is a youtuber, if you don't know what that mean, parents ask your kids, this is what he posts, on line, still manages to find time to
6:45 pm
put these videos together. really impressive. slightly random. does it throughout his travels. he was asked today on court in his post match interview, about his youtube channel and he pleaded for more subscriber, and he pleaded for more subscriber, and then 20 minutes later in the press co nfe re nce and then 20 minutes later in the press conference they told him that he had done quite well. your youtube subscribers have doubled since, is there more pressure on your next vied owe or your first grand there more pressure on your next vied owe or yourfirst grand slam semifinal. 0h vied owe or yourfirst grand slam semifinal. oh my god, really? i didn't know i was going to have such an impact what i said. yeah, i'm not sure. ithink an impact what i said. yeah, i'm not sure. i think i'm going to be more careful what i am going to post on my next video. so he started the day round 15,000 followers he is up to nearly 40,000, and if he makes it to the final, who knows how many he
6:46 pm
will end up. i dare say he will pick up will end up. i dare say he will pick upafew will end up. i dare say he will pick up a few more. how does he find the time doing what he does on the court, photography and the youtube videos? he goes on to face rafael nadal, he is through to the semifinals. conservative have a is into her first semifinals. conservative have a is into herfirst semifinal since semifinals. conservative have a is into her first semifinal since a knife attack almost ended her career, who would have taught she would be back on the biggest stage. there is no roger but there is rafa. aiming for his second australian 0pen aiming for his second australian open title but in form, yet to drop a set he tore through the first. the 21—year—old gave way. he accounted for big names kevin anderson and dimitrov, but nadal was operating on a high level. and the second set went the way of the first. the breathtaking tennis flowed from the
6:47 pm
world number two. the serve was dismissed in the first game third set. it was soon all over, next up for nadal an intriguing semifinal with stefanos tsitsipas, a 20—year—old currently the talk of the tournament. he won a lot of good matches. for me, it is always the same. you are in the semifinals of a grand slam, you can't expect an easy opponent and stefanos tsitsipas is one of the best players in the world. to have a chance to be in that final, i need to play my best, that is what i am looking for. kvitova is on form. this will be the first semifinal that the two time wimbledon champion has reached sips being stabbed in a knife attack at her home in 2016. knife attack at her home in 2016m wasn't easy for me to kind of see myself being a semifinal after
6:48 pm
everything, i always wanted to come back and play under highest level i can, and compete with the best and play the grand slams and be very deepin play the grand slams and be very deep in the grand slam, which is happening, and yeah, ijust, it took mea happening, and yeah, ijust, it took me a bit, to the tear, but it was the happy tears for sure. the american daniel colins is in the semi, he knocked, she knocked out the russian winning two sets to one. collins won seven games in a row as she dashed through the decider, not bad considering she has never won a grand slam match before the world anti—doping agency will not punish russia — the country responsible for one of sports greatest doping scandals for missing an end of year deadline to pass over data from its moscow lab. inspectors eventually gained access to the site later than agreed, prompting calls for the country to be suspended again. wada say they are following their own process to be fair to all members. it's believed there could be more than 300 fresh cases to investigate. 0ur sports editor, dan roan,
6:49 pm
asked wada's director general what he thought the number was likely to be. i have to be prudent in my answer and wait until we have all the identification and analyst work but a realistic number could be a few hundred cases. several hundred more cases of russian cheating that you can pursue potentially, yes. so that is positive. that is how it should be seen by in particular the athletes round the world because some of these athletes are probably still active they have changed the goalposts for russia, this has not been a big surprise, for me now, the big step is, they need to be as transparent as possible, we going forward now. i welcome that the data has been
6:50 pm
received but there is a lot of athletes out there question the integrity of wada. spurs have been dealt a further injury blow with the news that dele alli will be out with injury until march. he picked up a hamstring injury during his sides win
