Sydney rules, OK? The Thunder won the Men’s and Women’s BBL yesterday and last night. Dasha lost in the women’s tennis in Melbourne, but Roger The Dodger won easily in a late match. Nothing else mattered last night.

The second session (Sydney batting) had a total of 1.752 million viewers across the country on Ten and ONE. The first session (Melbourne batting) had 1.682 million across the country. All were very solid audiences for the final (the post game stuff managed to hold viewers and averaged 1.728 million). The tip and run beat Seven’s tennis which had a total of 1.454 million people watching on Seven and 7TWO (different matches).
