From Morning Report, 7:47 am on 29 January 2024

The Australian Open has come to a close, with Jannick Sinner making a stunning comeback to take out the title, beating Daniil Medvedev.

Down two sets and locked at 4-4 in the third set, Sinner turned things around to claim his first Grand Slam title in five sets.

He's the first Australian Open champion in more than a decade not named either Novak Djokovic, Rafa Nadal, or Roger Federer.

On Saturday, Aryna Sabalenka blasted her way to a second women's singles title, overwhelming China's Zheng Qinwen.
