Iga Swiatek, super number one in the world in a completely theoretical line will be one of the few certainties of the Australian Open 2023 women's draw. The highest seed in the Pole's draw segment segment is Coco Gauff, who started the season in the best possible way with the title in Auckland but who lost five direct matches on the major circuit.
In any case, the American could find Emma Raducanu in the second round, essentially hunting for certainties from the unexpected victory at the US Open in 2021. From there, nothing. In the second quarter of the draw are Jessica Pegula and Maria Sakkari.
The American could find her countrywoman Amanda Anisimova in the third round, with Madison Keys also present. She definitely appeared in good health during the United Cup. Also keep an eye on the Czechs Petra Kvitova and Barbora Krejcikova, in a portion of the draw where there are also Victoria Azarenka and Sofia Kenin.
The third segment of the draw is presided over by Caroline Garcia, who closed 2022 so well and who obviously wants to confirm herself during the new season.

In the second round she could potentially challenge compatriot Alize Cornet or former US Open finalist Leylah Fernandez. Number two of the seed obviously Ons Jabeur, potentially on a collision course in the second round with Marketa Vondrousova.
In the lower part of the draw, the situation of Aryna Sabalenka, the very fresh champion of the WTA 250 from Adelaide, must also be monitored. The quarter-final with Belinda Bencic could be fascinating. She could have gone much better for the blue troop, to use an understatement.
It goes badly, very badly, for Elisabetta Cocciaretto who fishes for Elena Rybakina. Lucia Bronzetti draws Laura Siegemund, Jasmine Paolini takes Ludmilla Samsonova while Camila Giorgi has the challenge with Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.
