Nine won last night off the back of the second day of its Australian Open coverage achieving a 20.4% primary share and a 28.3% network share, with the Australian Open’s night session averaging 464,000 viewers.

The main driving force behind these rating was the Ash Barty v Danka Kovnic, and Stefanos Tsitsipas v Gilles Simon matches that aired during prime time.

Barty defeated Kovnic in straight sets with an average metro audience through the match of 646,000, while Tsitsipas defeated Simon in front of an average metro audience of 432,000.

Home and Away was the top entertainment program of the night with 553,000.

The sixth leg of the race saw the teams converge on the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef. The teams tended turtles and treasure hunted, before The Daughter and Dad team of Jobelle and Rani were sent home.
