MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

AO 2024 – Day 8 women’s final results

MELBOURNE, Australia – Along with No. 2 seed and reigning champion Aryna Sabalenka, and No. 4 seed Coco Gauff, come a host of surprises as the bottom half of the women’s draw goes into the second week.

Mirra Andreeva, the 16-year-old who made a great escape in her previous round against Diane Parry (with some help from Parry, ’tis true) gets the solid No. 9 seed Krecjikova and gets a bit of a Grand Slam tennis lesson.

Sabalenka had a bit of the challenge of the unknown in facing Amanda Anisimova, who paused her career last year, is playing great tennis upon her return this week – and is 4-1 career vs Sabalenka – but remains an unknown quantity as to consistency and stamina. Sabalenka had little trouble.
