MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

AO 2024 – Day 5 women’s final results

MELBOURNE, Australia – Iga Swiatek vs Danielle Collins was an expected second-round match – not that both didn’t have to get through top-shelf opponents with tennis cred to get there.

But in his matchup, it was Collins who is the former finalist here, not Swiatek. She shoud have beaten her again. But from 4-1 up she handed the keys to the vault back to the Pole.

Beyond that, Daria Kasatkina was a great opportunity for … Sloane Stephens. And Ostapenko vs Tomljanovic had some fun history and ended in quite a collegial moment at the net (to the surprise, and perhaps even perverse disappointment) of some.
