Australian Open Ladies Singles Last Ten Winners

Here's a table showing the last ten Australian Open Ladies winners including the beaten finalist and set scores:

YearChampion (WR)Runner Up (WR)Set Score
2024Aryna Sabalenka (2)Qinwen Zheng (15)2-0
2023Aryna Sabalenka (5)Elena Rybakina (25)2-1
2022Ashleigh Barty (1)Danielle Collins (30)2-0
2021Naomi Osaka (3)Jennifer Brady (24)2-0
2020Sofia Kenin (15)Garbine Muguruza (32)2-1
2019Naomi Osaka (4)Petra Kvitova (6)2-1
2018Caroline Wozniacki (2)Simona Halep (1)2-1
2017Serena Williams (2)Venus Williams (17)2-0
2016Angelique Kerber (6)Serena Williams (1)2-1
2015Serena Williams (1)Maria Sharapova (2)2-0

Aryna Sabalenka became the first player to win back to Australian Open Women's Singles titles since Victoria Azarenka in 2012 and 2013. Sabalenka joined Naomi Osaka (2019 & 2021) and Serena Williams (2015 & 2017) as dual winners in the last ten editions.

Looking at the finalists in the last ten years, we have had seven ranked outside of the top ten although the winner has come from the top 6 in the world on nine occasions.

Former Wimbledon winner Garbine Muguruza who had slipped to number 32 in the world rankings was beaten in the final by Sofia Kenin in 2020 and Jennifer Brady (24) made her first slam final in 2021 losing to Naomi Osaka. Danielle Collins (ranked 30) was another first time grand slam finalist in 2022 as was China's Qinwen Zheng ranked 15 prior to the tournament in 2024. Losing 2023 finalist Elena Rybakina was ranked 25 heading into the tournament but was the defending Wimbledon champion.

On the evidence of the last ten years despite the open nature of the ladies tour, perhaps we can focus on the current top six in the world rankings ?
