We hoped you were lucky enough to see the Australian Open Women’s final – and that you watched it with your family. We are big tennis fans (of course!) and we recently wrote about the benefits for kids when you watch the tennis with them in our article, 10 real benefits of watching tennis with children

Learn More About Sofia Kenin
Sofia is a relative newcomer so there isn’t a lot of information about her online. Below are the main sites that we found information.
Our main reference was the WTA website. If you aren’t familiar with it, the WTA is the leading professional body for women’s tennis globally. Professional player’s profiles, match statistics, rankings and titles can be found here. It’s a great place to learn information about women’s tennis and the players.
