MOST classic grand slam finals are characterised by two players threatening to outdo each other with winners until one prevails. This was not that classic.

    MITCHELL Johnson sparked a complete clean-out of England cricket last summer and he worked on instigating another crisis with an awe-inspiring return at the WACA.

    NOVAK Djokovic has overcome mystery illness, a court invasion and Andy Murray’s stubbornness to seal Australian Open history after a bizarre final.

    JUST eight months ago he was a surprise inclusion in Australia’s World Cup squad. Now Massimo Luongo has been named the Asian Cup’s Most Valuable Player.

    FORMER Wanderer Aaron Mooy scored a cracker as Melbourne City claimed a 2-1 victory at AAMI Park and leave Western Sydney facing some big questions.
