Brisbane champ Pliskova - out
Auckland champ Serena - out
Shenzhen champ Alexandrova - out
Hobart champ Rybakina - out

All in the 3R too.

All that remains is Adelaide champ, Ash Barty.

I think two of the ESPN commentators, I forget which ones, picked the women's final to be Serena vs. Pliskova and both are out prior to the 4th round. I find that hilarious.

Honestly don’t think these commentators know tennis. Absolutely stupid to have picked Serena to make the final and Pliskova’s draw was brutal. Mladenovic R1, Siegemund R2, Pavs 3R and that was just to start the tournament,
Osaka, Barty, Kvitová, Halep all far safer bets.

Wertheim of SI predicted Serena vs Pliskova final (and Keys in the semi).

Of course! As an Australian and a massive fan of Ash I am very happy! Was just making a point that those ranked 2-5 aren’t doing so well.
She is the best thing that happened to womens tennis for a long time! It's nice to see that variety and a feel based game pays off. It makes me happy to watch her play.

LOL qualifier calibre players don't have 10+ millions of price money on their accounts.
Not that hard on the women’s tour bud. I could pick a random 5 year old and have them make 10 million dollars playing tennis on the women’s tour.

Yep because people don’t know women’s tennis and go oh yeah the woman who’s won 23 slams will win it. It was the same crap in the last 2 slam finals everyone said oh Serena will win and me and a few others here went no, Halep and Andreescu are the favourites. They called the losses ‘upsets’ but they weren’t. She won a flimsy title in Auckland and everyone went oh she’s a champion again. Compare that to how Barty, Osaka and Petra did coming into the tournament and it pales in comparison.

Well Osaka got stomped by a 15 year old so there goes that momentum.

you have to understand ESPN/American is all about Serena no matter what, Rennae Stubbs was the only lone voice that predicted the R3 match against Qiang Wang would be a tough one for Serena, and Rennae is Australian.

6-0 first set mean nothing in the ladies game. Muguruza lost first set 6-0 to Brady looked like she was on another planet then came back and lost 1 game the rest of the match.
