The women's singles was a tale of two halves, chaos in the top half, with 12th seed Qinwin Zheng making it all the way through to her first grand slam final. In the bottom half, defending Aussie champ Aryna Sabalenka was superb and it was the Belarusian who stormed to a straight-sets victory in Saturday's final.

The men's singles was more predictable, right up until Jannik Sinner produced the performance of his career so far to defeat 10-time champion Novak Djokovic in their semi-final. Sinner will face third seed Daniil Medvedev, who fought back from two sets down to beat Alexander Zverev in an epic contest. Sinner vs Zverev will be on Sunday.

Matches worth watching on Sunday, January 28

After two weeks of scintillating tennis, it's time for Jannik Sinner vs Daniil Medvedev in the Australian Open 2024 men's singles final. 

Sinner was magnificent in beating Novak Djokovic in four titanic sets in his semi-final and confirming his recent ascent to the top of the men's game. The 22-year-old's massive weapons – big serve, even bigger forehand – make him dangerous regardless of opponent, with world number one Djoko the only player to take a set off him this tournament.

Medvedev has been the marathon man this tournament, going five sets on three different occasions and more late finishes than Lindsay Lohan. The Russian's will to win is unmatched in the ATP Tour and he'll need every last morsel to overcome the form horse.

Our top recommendation for catching Gauff vs Sabalenka and Zhenv vs Yastremska would be to use the streaming service ESPN Plus. It's covering every single serve, smash and volley of the tournament and, according to ESPN, its streaming service "will stream all rounds on all courts live". Simple!

ESPN Plus costs $10.99 per month or $109.99 per year for a subscription, but many people sign up via the Disney Bundle, which offers it alongside Hulu and Disney Plus from just $14.99 per month.

If you have cable, then you'll also be able to watch Gauff vs Sabalenka live on ESPN2. Alternatively, stream ESPN2 through various live TV streaming services.

DirecTV offers it in its Entertainment package for $79.99 per month (or its higher tiers), Fubo has it in the basic Pro package at $79.99 per month (or through its 7-day free trial), and Sling TV has it in its Orange plan from $40 per month (or its Orange + Blue package which is $55 per month) and half-price for your first month.
