Sabalenka, who won her first major singles title in this tournament last year, successfully defended her title.

It has been 11 years since Sabalenka won the Australian Open women's singles for two consecutive years since Viktoria Azaranka (22nd, Belarus) in 2012 and 2013.

Sabalenka has reached the semifinals or higher in six consecutive major tournaments from the 2022 US Open to this tournament, establishing a 'two-strong system' in women's tennis with Iga Sibiontech (1st place, Poland).

In particular, Sabalenka won the tournament without losing a single set while playing 7 games.

Sabalenka has won the Australian Open women's singles without loss in two years since Ashley Barty (Australia) in 2022.

When Arina Sabalenka won the Australian Open last year, she only lost one set to her opponent in the final.

Sabalenka won the event, but her world ranking will remain at No. 2 next week, while Chung Chin-won moves up to No. 7.

As soon as the game started, in just 11 minutes, Arina Sabalenka took the lead by leading the game 3-0.

Sabalenka, who reached the singles finals of a major tournament for the third time, dominated the atmosphere from the beginning by dominating Chung Chin-won, who reached the finals of her first Grand Slam tournament.

In addition, Chin-won Jeong had a triple break point at 0-40 during the opponent's serve game with the game score of 0-2, but missed the opportunity to turn the game around by failing to take the game.

Jeong Chin-won, who lost the first set 3-6, committed three double faults in the first serve game of the second set and allowed a break, bringing on a struggle.

The lead was 30-0, but two double faults came out in a row to make it 30-30. Sabalenka's serve return score and Chung Chin-won's double fault again allowed Sabalenka to break.

Sabalenka, who widened the gap with the game score to 2-0 from the beginning of the second set, solidified the victory by once again serving the opponent at 3-1.

Jeong Qin-won, who reached the singles finals of a major tournament as a Chinese player 10 years after the 2014 champion Lina (China), received support from many Chinese fans, but was unable to withstand the heavy attacks of Sabalenka, whose strength is strength.

As Jeong Chin-won, who ranked first in the number of serve aces in the tournament, he had to strictly protect his serve game and plan a counterattack in the opponent's serve game, but the game did not go as planned, with 6 double faults at every critical point and a first serve success rate of only 53%.

However, Chung Qin-Won, born in 2002, became the second Chinese player to enter the top 10 in the singles world rankings after Li Na, who rose to second place in the world, and this was a tournament that confirmed her potential for future development.
