England has salvaged some pride holding out the Aussies in the 4th Test of the Ashes series in a thrilling end to the last day in Sydney. Going right down to the wire, the match finished in a draw with one wicket to spare. Australia was unable to unleash our fast bowlers on the English tail because of bad light at the SCG – that left our spinners, including vice-captain Steve Smith to do the honours. The result leaves the series at 3-0 our way with one Test to go in Hobart. As for tennis, our world #1 women’s player Ash Barty is in great form heading into the Aussie Open. Yesterday she took out the Adelaide International singles title in straight sets against Kazakhstani Elena Rybakina. Barty then teamed up with American Storm Sanders to win the doubles. Not bad work for a Sunday arvo… Meanwhile, Rafael Nadal has won the Melbourne Summer Set – he said it was an important win after recent injuries have held him up.
