AMID suggestions the “Australian way” was officially dead, Bernard Tomic and Lleyton Hewitt put on one hell of a show.

    LIVE: Jarryd Hayne showed great hands to gather an awkwardly bouncing ball in a positive start to his final NFL preseason hitout.

    SOCIAL media and tennis players and fans everywhere were enraptured by the all-Aussie US Open match that saw Bernard Tomic conquer his hero Lleyton Hewitt.

    IT looked set to be another night of humiliation and ridicule for Shane Watson until the much-maligned cricketer showcased his ongoing value to Australia.

    THE wife of an NFL team’s boss made a graphic claim about a female sports reporter. Then it backfired spectacularly.
