It's the ultimate David versus Goliath battle: world No.114 Aslan Karatsev up against the top-ranked titleholder Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open semi-finals.

Karatsev's minimum Open pay day of $850,000 for a semi-final defeat would more than double his career on-court earnings of $798,700.

Yet that's still only about what Djokovic banks every week, with the Serb already tennis's biggest prize money winner after pocketing $188 million from his 81 professional titles.

Karatsev has played but 18 professional matches, Djokovic 1133 - 88 of those at the Australian Open alone.

Djokovic is challenging Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal as tennis's so-called GOAT - greatest off all time.

Karatsev has spent a decade toiling away in low-level Challenger and Futures events, winning only one of the 93 tournaments he contested before COVID-19.

Djokovic is unbeaten in eight previous Melbourne Park semi-finals.

But there is this for the Russian underdog: Karatsev has never lost in the main draw at Melbourne Park.

Such has been his incredible rise from tennis obscurity that, ranked 293rd in the world, Karatsev didn't even make the Melbourne qualifying draw last year.

Arsenal 'could be cut adrift' if they continue cup focus, warns Seaman

  Arsenal 'could be cut adrift' if they continue cup focus, warns Seaman David Seaman has advised Mikel Arteta to steer Arsenal's focus back onto the Premier League or risk being left behind, insisting FA Cup triumphs are not enough. The Gunners last secured a top-four finish back in 2016 but have fed their supporters the consolation of two FA Cup victories since, masking their steady slide to Europa League obscurity. The north Londoners lie 11th in another campaign to forget, except there will be no breadcrumbs in 2021 after Mikel Arteta's were dumped out of both England's domestic cups.

He is a battle -hardened giant named Goliath , and when he repeatedly calls out for someone to meet him in one-on-one combat, none are brave enough to answer the challenges. David , a youth visiting his brothers in Israel’ s camp, hears the blasphemous roaring and goes forward with providence, but without armor However, as will be seen in the upcoming film Patterns of Evidence: The Moses Controversy, there is dramatic evidence for Semitic writing far earlier than the time of David and Goliath , and there was a genuine opportunity for the account to be written in real time, and not centuries later.

He'd never beaten a top-40 opponent before this week.

Next week he could be in the top 40 himself after claiming the scalps of world No.9 Diego Schwartzman and two other members of the top 20 en route to the unlikeliest of places in the final four.

"I try to believe in what I'm doing on the court, and it's helped me to win matches," Karatsev said.

"I arrive to the court and say, 'I try to do my best with more belief'.'

"The key is the right coach that I found. I was really lucky to find him."

Karatsev, though, will need much more than Yahor Yatsyk's input to stop Djokovic.

Unbeaten in 27 matches in Australia since 2018, the Serb is on a mission to close the gap on Federer and Nadal on the men's all-time grand slam title leaderboard.

Djokovic has 17 slams, three shy of his two great rivals, and is refusing to let an abdominal strain slow his chase.

"I have not ever experienced that, to be honest, and I have never experienced this kind of injury during a grand slam and kind of keep going," Djokovic said.

"I have had a rollercoaster of a tournament since the third third round and an injury that happened, and unpredictability of what happens next.

"He doesn't have anything to lose, really. He's motivated. I expect him to come out and really go for his shots and try his best and try to take that win."

David Luiz must end career at Benfica says club legend Nuno Gomes .
Luiz was a firm favourite in the Portuguese capital, and has spoken previously of his desire to return to Benfica before hanging up his boots for good. Gomes, who played with Luiz during his time there, said he was all for it. 'Let's see what happens,' he told Goal.'I remember that when he left Benfica he was very well adapted to Portugal in terms of his career on the pitch and his social life off the pitch. He was like a Portuguese already in terms of his way of life and culture.'He struggled a little bit to leave because he was doing very well and was very well settled here. But the offer that he received he couldn't refuse.
