MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

MELBOURNE, Australia – Either the reigning champion defends, or a new Chinese champion would crowned a decade after Li Na turned the tennis world upside down – not the least in her own country – and became a global superstar. In the end, Sabalenka was to good.

And in the doubles, the oldest man who ever be No. 1 in the world (he will be on Monday) looked for his first men’s doubles crown at a major, a month before his 44th birthday.

And got it.
