MELBOURNE, Australia
America’s Sofia Kenin stunned two-time Major champion Garbine Muguruza to win
the Australian Open in her first Grand Slam final on Saturday, becoming the
youngest player to lift the trophy in 12 years.

Kenin, 21, showed all her trademark aggression as she fought
back from a set down to win it 4-6, 6-2, 6-2 in 2hrs 3mins.

At 21 years and 80 days, Kenin is 22 days younger than
Japan’s Naomi Osaka when she won the title last year. She is the youngest
champion since Maria Sharapova won aged 20 in 2008.
