National Nine News reports on Pat Rafter's loss to Goran Ivanišević at the Wimbledon final in 2001.

This news segment is a good example of telling an engaging story in under two minutes. Surprisingly very little of the match itself is shown – less than five seconds – in place of the reactions of fans, family and even Prime Minister John Howard. We also see people celebrating in Croatia the victory of Ivanišević.

The clip effectively highlights how the Wimbledon competition resonates on a national level, as well as internationally.
