MELBOURNE, Australia – It’s finals day for the women.
And for all the talk about more players with variety, bla bla bla, the two left standing at the end of the Australian Open were the biggest hitters out there.
And it was a great, hard-hitting final. Not a classic, but with so much of the second week pretty routine, it was a great ending.
Later, an Aussie wild-card team won the men’s doubles. And they were preetty chuffed about it.
Also the girls’ and boys’ singles finals to lead everything off – with the girls’ final going 3h18 between two Russians (officially: white flags) that ended in tears of jubilation and devastation and a lot of grace from both. The boys’ final was even crazier. Two great matches.
Melbourne is 16 hours ahead of Eastern time.
