VARIOUS OF KENIN AND HER FATHER, ALEX KENIN, WITH TROPHY STORY: Sofia Kenin posed with her maiden Grand Slam trophy on the banks of Melbourne's Yarra River on Sunday (February 2) after fighting her way back from a set down to beat Spain's Garbine Muguruza in the Australian Open final.

Kenin may not have the strength or build of her Spanish opponent, but what she lacked in power she made up for in willpower as she took down double Grand Slam winner Muguruza 4-6 6-2 6-2.
