Favorite to Win the 2023 Australian Open Women’s Single Tournament

There definitely will be a new Australian Open women’s singles tournament champion crowned this month following the abrupt retirement of Ashleigh Barty. Since Barty’s departure, Polish powerhouse Iga Swiatek has taken over the WTA Tour in stride. Swiatek won the French and US Opens to cap off her remarkable season last year whilst also setting a new record in the 21st century with her 37-match win streak. With an amazing body of work in 2022, it’s only fitting that Swiatek is the consensus favorite to finally win it all in Melbourne, where she also had a strong semifinal showing last January.

Dark Horses to Win the 2023 Australian Open Women’s Single Tournament

Coco Gauff

Falling to Swiatek in last year’s finals at Roland Garros is rising 18-year-old Coco Gauff, who recently held the World No. 4 position in the women’s singles rankings before cooling off a bit and settling into the World No. 7 position to date. The Atlanta native has been knocking on a maiden WTA Tour victory for quite some time now. However, Gauff’s double duty of competing in doubles play limits her potential of running the table in the Aussie Open’s singles tourney, but is nonetheless a solid sleeper pick to stun the field.

Elena Rybanika

Thanks in large part to a shock victory at Wimbledon last year, Elena Rybanika is now a perennial threat to win it all in any given tournament and thus, also another superb sleeper candidate to capture her second Grand Slam title in Melbourne this month. Like Gauff, however, Rybanika lost a lot of momentum toward the tail-end of the previous season. Still, the shining star of Kazakhstan has made it past the first round in each of her last three appearances at the Australian Open, making her a tough out in Melbourne as a decent dark horse pick to get back into winning shape on another massive stage.

Jessica Pegula

Unlike our first two sleeper candidates, Buffalo’s very own Jessica Pegula has remained consistent since securing the World No. 3 ranking back in October. Not only did Pegula wrap up the previous season with her first WTA 1000 victory in Guadalajara, but she also made the quarterfinals of Grand Slam events four times over the last two years. Two of those QF showings came in Melbourne as well to further boost her stock as another strong sleeper pick to win the first major tournament of 2023.

Huge Reach Pick to Win the 2023 Australian Open Women’s Single Tournament

It’s been a sad, rapid decline in form for two-time Grand Slam champion and former WTA Tour Finals champion Garbine Muguruza. The once-sensational Spanish standout dropped from World No. 3 to out of the top 50 of the world rankings given her dismal 2022 campaign and abdominal issues late in the year adding literal injury to the proverbial insult. Muguruza did reach the Australian Open final back in 2020, but that’s not enough to consider her as no more than a longshot to capture the title in Melbourne this month.
