MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

AO 2024 – Day 2 women’s final results

MELBOURNE, Australia – There was plenty of suspense before the draw, wondering where the former champion Naomi Osaka – unseeded, on a protected ranking – would end up in the draw.

It literally could have been any opponent – even the world No. 1. The drawer of the short stick was No. 16 seed Caroline Garcia, who will face Osaka late night on Rod Laver Arena.

Upsets possible? Pavlyuchenkova over Vekic. Townsend over Badosa. Yastremska over Vondrousova.

Go down the lineup and pick’em.
