Djokovic won the third set 6–2, as Murray won just three out of eleven points on his second serve. Djokovic took the fourth set 6–4 to win the match. He has now won the last four major tournaments, beginning with Wimbledon last year.

After the match, Djokovic called it “a thrilling moment. One of the most beautiful I have had in my career.”

In his last 14 meetings against Murray, Djokovic has won 12 times, and with this Grand Slam title he joins only seven other men in history with a career Grand Slam.

On Friday, former Manchester United and Internazionale football player Nemanja Vidić announced he is retiring from professional competition in the sport. The Yugoslavia-born who used to represent Serbia in the international matches left Inter by mutual consent this month. Vidić said “The injuries I have had in the last few years have taken their toll.”

Since 2006 for eight years Vidić played for Manchester United and won five Premier League titles. He also won the 2008 UEFA Champions League and three League Cups with United. The Serbian ruptured his knee ligament in December 2011 against Swiss club FC Basel. In July 2014, he joined the Italian side as a free transfer but made only 28 appearances. Since August 2015, he did not play a single match due to a surgery.

He told Manchester United “The time has come for me to hang up my boots”.

He was a squad member of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, and had 56 caps for Serbia.

The turning for Parndorf off the A4, from file. The lorry was found on the road nearby.

Austrian police today found an estimated 20–50 decomposing corpses in an apparently abandoned lorry.

Roadworkers who spotted the vehicle, which had been there since yesterday at least, alerted police. Responding officers found it full of corpses. The lorry is on the so-called “Eastern Motorway“, the A4, close to the Hungarian border. It was on the hard shoulder between Neusiedl and Parndorf, closer to Parndorf.

The victims are thought to have suffocated. Police are seeking the driver. The Krone published an image of a non-articulated food lorry on the hard shoulder, which they report is the vehicle in question. The photo shows a pool of dark liquid on the ground beside the vehicle.

Video from a passing motorist shows at least one helicopter on-scene. The truck, which has pictures of meat on the side, shows branding for Slovakian food firm Hyza. Earlier today the company’s website sported an apparent anti-immigration graphic, which has since been removed.

Wikinews got in touch with Hyza. “We are truly sorry about [the] tragedy” they told us in a statement. They said they have checked GPS trackers on their fleet and all their vehicles remain in Slovakia. The statement says the lorry in question was one of 21 Hyza vehicles sold on last year. It was then sold again and exported to Hungary, where it is now registered. Hyza told us the new owners have not changed the branding on the vehicle. According to the Bild newspaper, Agrofert — the parent company of Hyza — said in a statement the new owners were required to do so.

Hyza says they will “actively cooperate with Slovak police”, and “express [their] sincere condolences to the bereaved families.”

Interior Minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner called it “a dark day” and called for European Union-wide measures to protect immigrant refugees and tackle human traffickers. Neighbouring Hungary is constructing a border fence across its entire frontier with Serbia. Yesterday alone saw a record 3,241 attempts to enter Hungary illegally, according to authorities there.

Conflict in Syria and other parts of the world has led refugees to Europe. Once inside, they can move freely inside the Schengen Area, which covers most of the EU.

Austrian police earlier this week arrested three motorists suspected of people smuggling. One driver is accused of moving 34 people, ten of them children, into Austria from Serbia. The group were left by the roadside near Bruck an der Leitha and reported struggling to breathe in the van.

File photo of current world number 1 Novak Djokovic

On Sunday, Novak Djokovic defeated seven-time champion Roger Federer 7–6, 6–7, 6–4, 6–3 to win the 2015 Wimbledon Championships men’s singles, which is overall his third Wimbledon trophy of his career. Djokovic, who is ranked world number one in men’s tennis, has now won a total of nine Grand Slam titles.

Djokovic won the first set 7–6 with 6 aces in total. Federer snatched the second set 7–6 in his favour, that too with 6 aces. The Serbian Djokovic had only 16 unforced errors as compared to Federer’s 35 unforced errors. Completing the third and fourth sets 6–4 and 6–3, Djokovic ruined the chance of Federer winning the championship for an eighth time, a feat nobody has ever accomplished to date.

The match was completed in two hours and 56 minutes. After the match, Federer said “I had my chances in the first set. I got lucky to win the second, had chances in the third. But he was better on the bigger points. He was rock solid, I didn’t play badly myself. That’s how it goes.”

This was Djokovic’s 48th victory in 2015.

Wikinews reporter LauraHale interviews United States Paralympic skier Jasmin Bambur

Recently, Wikinews spent time with with United States Paralympic skier Jasmin Bambur who was at Copper Mountain, Colorado for the IPC Nor-Am Cup.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWikinewsWikinews waves Right.png We’re interviewing Jasmin Bambur. He is a guy. He’s from Serbia, right?

Jasmin Bambur: Yes, ma’am, I am from Serbia but I race for US Paralympic.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png How did a Serb end up racing for the USA?

Jasmin Bambur: It’s very simple. You just get married to a fine American lady and she give you citizenship and you ski fast and you get on the team. That’s very simple.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png Why do the Australians love you so?

Jasmin Bambur: We’re a very small community, as ski racers, and we’re always great friends. So we kind of hang out together and help each other out. And then in the end, depends who wins, either hate them or love them.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png They said you’re some sort of professional racquetball player or something?

Jasmin Bambur: It’s actually team handball. It’s a sport [where] you have seven players like rugby. And yes, I played it professionally until I was 18 in Europe. And when war started in Kosovo, I moved to the United States and that’s how I end up here.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png You weren’t always a sit skier?

Jasmin Bambur: I am a sit skier now but actually the reason I am a sit skier is I had a car accident in 2000. I fell asleep driving. Driving and sleeping don’t go together. I don’t know why.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png Yeah, that’s a difficult lesson to learn. So how have you been doing at this event?

Jasmin Bambur: Skiing? I’ve been skiing for about ten years, racing about four. And so far it’s going great.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png You won a medal, at this thing, right? One of these days?

Jasmin Bambur: I won two medals in Super G, two third places, and yesterday I got second place in slalom.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png And what’s your favourite one?

Jasmin Bambur: Favourite is Super G.

Wikinews waves Left.pngWNWikinews waves Right.png Because you go fast?

Jasmin Bambur: Yes, fast and very little turning. So that’s my pick[?].

Medal ceremony for women’s 10m SH1 standing air rifle

London, England — Following the second full day of competition at the 2012 Summer Paralympics, China leads the medal race with 13 gold medals and 34 medals in total. Australia comes second with 7 gold, and the Ukraine is third with 6 gold medals.

China’s large medal haul was distributed across several sports, with 15 from swimming, 5 each from athletics and track cycling, 4 from judo, 3 from powerlifting, 2 from shooting.

Australia’s first medal of the Games was won in women’s standing air rifle shooting event where Natalie Smith captured a bronze medal during the first medal event of the Games. One of Australia’s bronze medals came in athletics’ F35–36 shot put event. Kath Proudfoot originally was listed as finishing fifth, but the Australians appealed this citing errors in how her results were calculated. Their appeal was successful, and Proudfoot came away with her second consecutive Paralympic medal in the event.

Over half the medals won by the United States came in swimming, with 7 total. The country has earned an additional 3 in track cycling and 1 in athletics.

A number of competitors have already earned multiple medals, including Australia’s Jacqueline Freney and Matthew Cowdrey, and the United States’s Jessica Long and Elizabeth Stone who all picked up a pair of medals in the pool.
