Australian Open: Kenin lifts first grand slam title
Sofia Kenin

Sofia Kenin bounced back from losing the first set to defeat Garbiñe Muguruza in the Australian Open final in Melbourne.

Muguruza took the first set 6-4 against the 21-year-old American, playing in her first major final. 

Kenin acquitted herself well against the Spaniard early on but it looked like she would be too powerful for her American equivalent. 

Kenin, however, fought back in the second, brushing aside Muguruza to take the set 6-2.

In the crucial third and final set Kenin saved three break points to take the fifth game and then broke the Spaniard to move into the lead and she never looked back.
