Aryna Sabalenka overcame Elena Rybakina in three sets to win her first grand slam at the Australian Open.
In a battle of two of the biggest hitters in the women's game, Sabalenka seized the initiative after dropping the opening set to win 4-6 6-3 6-4 on Rod Laver Arena. A year ago, Sabalenka exited the tournament in the fourth round having served 56 double faults, and the 24-year-old's success comes after she remodelled her service action and learned to embrace a calmer mindset. "I think it's even more enjoyable, I would say, after all those tough matches," said Sabalenka, who had lost three times in slam semi-finals before making the breakthrough here.
The Netherlands defender steered home a low shot in the 64th minute as City landed the first blow in their trilogy of clashes with the Gunners over the coming months. Arsenal, the Premier League leaders, had enjoyed the better of the first half, with Takehiro Tomiyasu and Leandro Trossard both forcing good saves from Stefan Ortega. Guardiola, perhaps aware that a victory could also have a psychological impact heading into next month's league encounter between the sides, went with a strong side and made just two changes to Arteta's six.
The England international produced two superb second-half saves from Southampton forward Che Adams as the Magpies secured a vital 1-0 win from a breathless Carabao Cup semi-final first leg at St Mary's. Joelinton set aside a disallowed goal and a shocking miss to claim the visitors' 73rd-minute winner, while Saints substitute Adam Armstrong had a leveller ruled out for handball following VAR intervention. Newcastle manager Eddie Howe, who warned there is still a long way to go in the tie ahead of next week's return meeting, saluted the impact of his in-form keeper, while Magpies midfielder Bruno Guimaraes went a step further.
