Sofia Kenin is floating on an untouchable cloud after beating Garbiñe Muguruza in three sets to win the 2020 Australian Open, becoming the eighth first-time winner in the past dozen grand slam finals.

Kenin, the 21-year-old daughter of Russian emigres who arrived in the United States with little but hope and two children, not only is she the youngest American to win a major since Serena Williams 18 years ago, but the youngest Melbourne champion since Maria Sharapova in 2008.
