Ten­nis: Fed Cup NINE, 2pm

It’s been more than 30 years since Aus­tralia claimed the most pres­ti­gious na­tional team com­pe­ti­tion in women’s ten­nis, but with world No.1 Ash­leigh Barty lead­ing the way, the Aussies have reached their first Fed Cup fi­nal since 1993 and are a chance to claim their first ti­tle in the tour­na­ment since 1974. Hop­ing to ex­tend Aus­tralia’s drought will be France, led by Caro­line Gar­cia, who are chas­ing their first Fed Cup win since 2003. WideWorld­ofS­ports and its team of ex­perts will de­liver all of the ac­tion from RAC Arena in Perth.

MacGyver WIN BOLD, 7.30pm

The most sur­pris­ing thing about this mod­ern re­make of the pop­u­lar ’80s ac­tion se­ries is that it took so long to come around. Lu­cas Till (pic­tured) – per­haps best known for his role in sev­eral X-Men films – is the tit­u­lar star of the se­ries, us­ing his wits and what­ever ob­jects he has at his dis­posal to save the day. Tonight, two Amer­i­can tourists go miss­ing while do­ing a scav­enger hunt through some of the world’s most dan­ger­ous coun­tries. The Phoenix team goes un­der­cover as back­pack­ers to find them and bring them home alive. It’s a pretty safe bet how it will all end but that doesn’t mean it won’t be a fun ride.
