AO Day 15 - Sinner seizes maiden slam

Jannik Sinner is a Grand Slam champion! He came back from two sets down to beat Daniil Medvedev in a fascinating Australian Open final. Catherine and Matt discuss how Sinner did it, what another loss from two sets up means for Medvedev, the role Medvedev's path to the final played in his performance, the way Sinner has proved us wrong, and what lies ahead for him in the short and long term. There's also chat about Su Wei Hsieh and Elise Mertens winning the women's doubles title and some final reflections on what's been a thrilling but challenging tournament to cover.
