The 2024 Australian Open is working its way through the quarterfinals, and the women’s tournament had a seismic upset ahead of the final eight players. The top seed in the tournament, Iga Świątek was upended in the third round, losing in three sets to unseeded Linda Noskova.

Only four ranked players advanced to the quarterfinals thanks to a host of upsets along the way. Noskova followed her upset of Świątek with a win over #19 Elina Svitolina after Svitolina had to retire due to a back injury. Noskova will face fellow unseeded player Dayana Yastremska, who knocked off #27 Emma Navarro and #18 Victoria Azarenka in the third and fourth rounds, respectively.

#2 seed Aryna Sabalenka is the highest remaining seed and is set to face #4 Coco Gauff in the semifinals of the tournament. The winner of Noskova-Yastremska will face the winner of #12 Qinwen Zheng vs. unseeded Anna Kalinskaya. That guarantees us at least one unseeded player in the semifinals, and possibly a second.

Sabalenka is now the favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook with -120 odds to win the tournament. Gauff follows at +210 and the winner of their semifinal match will be a heavy favorite to win the women’s singles final.
