  13. 'An extraordinary sporting story'

    David Law

    Radio 5 live commentator at Melbourne Park

    The fact Roger Federer has turned it around, after Novak Djokovic's period of dominance, and at 36 has won three Grand Slams in last 12 months is one of the most extraordinary sporting stories I have ever heard about.

    I don't think even he expected this. It means so much more as a result

    Cue tears. Loads of tears. The 20-time Grand Slam winner's gone.
