There has been lots to celebrate in Australian tennis this week, including Jacob Bradshaw claiming his maiden professional singles title and Matt Ebden achieving a 24-year first.

Rising star Bradshaw, a 21-year-old from Queensland, made his title breakthrough at an ITF 15 tournament in Greece. His winning run included a semifinal victory against former world No.24 Martin Klizan.

Ebden made history at the ATP Masters 1000 tournament in Miami, becoming the first Australian to claim the men’s doubles title in 24 years.

The 36-year-old from Perth continued his stellar start to the season by teaming with Indian Rohan Bopanna to win his 11th career doubles crown.

Heath Davidson also enjoyed a title-winning run, triumphing at the Daegu Open in South Korea.

This is the 36-year-old’s eighth career quad singles title on the ITF Wheelchair Tennis Tour. It also marks Davidson’s first singles title since July 2023 and his third victory at the event, following previous success in 2017 and 2018.
