Lleyton Hewitt's victory over Argentina's David Nalbandian was the first time an Australian had won the men's singles at Wimbledon in 15 years. 

This segment from Sky News Australia focuses mostly on the match itself, which was a good decision. It allows the audience to revel in Hewitt's masterful display of skill and enjoy the dominance he showed against his opponent.

An amusing addition is the moment when a streaker runs onto the court and we see the reaction from members of the Royal Family. The inclusion of a short interview with Hewitt at the end gives a satisfying context to what the win means for young tennis players.
