Nine took the title on Wednesday with a winning Australia Day eve share of 24.1% for its primary channel and a winning combined channel share of 33.4%. Nine was an east coast leader, but cricket and time differences helped Seven grab winning shares in Adelaide and Perth.

Most of the marquee players from previous Grand Slams are long gone in this tournament, but it was the biggest name left in the Australian Open that drew the Nine crowd last night. An audience of 475,000 tuned in to watch Novak Djokovic forge his way into the semi-finals on Friday. Most of that audience – 458,000 – stayed on later into the night to watch the later evening session.
