Archie Graham reaffirmed his world No.1 status with a dominant performance at the Australian Open 2024 PWII Championships.

The event, for the world’s best players with an intellectual impairment, was played at Melbourne Park as part of the Australian Open.

The Queenslander claimed the men’s singles title with a 6-3 6-2 victory against Great Britain’s Oliver Beadle in today’s final.

Graham also teamed with compatriot Joshua Holloway to win the men’s doubles title.

“It’s definitely a great experience playing here at Melbourne Park and winning at this level,” said Graham, who idolises Rafael Nadal.

“I still get goosebumps every time I come back here … It definitely makes you feel privileged and honoured being around the best in the world.”
