Australian Open Women's Singles Winners

Australian Open is one of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments, held annually since 1905. It is held in the month of January every year, at the Melbourne Park, Melbourne, Australia. Both men and women participate in this international tournament. Women's tennis is distinct with numerous blotches and splotches. It has not shown a player-oriented trend since Swiss sensation Martina Hingis, who made a fabulous entry into the realm of tennis. Today, the game is evenly distributed between some top players. The women's singles winner is presented with the Daphne Akhurst Memorial Cup. In the following lines, we have given a list of Australian Open Women's Singles winners.
