A lovely moment at Rod Laver Arena as reigning champion and Aussie hero Ash Barty places the women’s trophy on the stand prior to the singing of the national anthem.
Rybakina, Sabalenka smash Aus Open personal bests
By Ronny Lerner
Rybakina’s previous best performance at the Australian Open was a third-round exit in 2020, while Sabalenka had made back-to-back fourth-round appearances in 2021 and 2022.
Of course, Rybakina’s best effort at a grand slam was her Wimbledon triumph last year, while Sabalenka has made it to the semi-final stage three times – at Wimbeldon in 2021 and the US Open in 2021 and 2022.
‘Unless he pulls a hamstring in the other leg – he might lose then’
By Courtney Walsh and Scott Spits
Ken Rosewall has watched a lot of tennis this summer and is certain Novak Djokovic will post a historic win in Sunday’s Australian Open final against Stefanos Tsitsipas.
The Australian legend said Djokovic, who has been battling pain in his left hamstring, would need to tear his other hamstring to fall short of claiming a 10th Australian Open.
A 28th-straight win at Melbourne Park would see the Serbian join Rafael Nadal at the top of the all-time major list with 22 grand slam titles.
Sabalenka should be fresher
By Ronny Lerner
Including her doubles matches, Rybakina has spent 12 hours and 51 minutes on court so far at the Australian Open, while Sabalenka’s total match time has been over four hours less at 8:39.
Could that be a decisive factor in tonight’s final?
Rosewall and the record that eludes even the ‘Big Three’
By Scott Spits
Australian tennis great Ken Rosewall – the oldest man to win a major – is unfazed if the record slips from his grasp.
Rosewall had a prodigiously successful career spanning decades and famously won the Australian Open 19 years apart – as an upcoming teenager 70 years ago and then twice in the sport’s open era.
Rosewall’s record as the oldest slam winner, achieved courtesy of a straight sets victory win over Mal Anderson more than 50 years ago, is yet to be surpassed even as titans of the sport – Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic – have stayed dominant deep into their 30s.
Junior final pushes girls to tears
By Scott Spits
Those tennis-goers who took a punt and went to Melbourne Park on Saturday had the chance to witness an epic and compelling junior girls’ final that lasted more than three hours.
In a contest which left both players exhausted and in tears at the finish, Russia’s Alina Korneeva defeated her compatriot Mirra Andreeva 6-7 (7-2), 6-4, 7-5.
Each of the three sets exceeded the one-hour mark and Korneeva finally got the win – and the title – by breaking her friend Andreeva in the 11th game of the deciding set before serving it out.
