  • Ash Barty won last year’s women’s Australian Open draw before promptly retiring.
  • Barty defeated Danielle Collins, 6-3, 7-6, in the 2022 Final.
  • No. 1 Iga Swiatek is the favorite to win this year’s Australian Open.

Last year was an awfully long time ago. Most of us can’t remember what we ate for breakfast yesterday; how are we supposed to remember who won the women’s Australian Open last year?

Fortunately, I’m on the case with all the tennis betting info and Australian Open odds you need to know. 

Who Won Last Year’s Women’s Australian Open?

Ash Barty defeated Danielle Collins, 6-3, 7-6, to win her own national tournament in 2022. 

Having achieved all of her professional athletic goals, the Australian promptly retired from tennis. This year’s women’s singles draw will have no one defending last year’s title.
