QUESTION: Australian Open women's finalists Simona Halep and Caroline Wozniaki are both seeking their first Grand Slam championship. When was the last time the Australian Open final featured two women without a major title?


ANSWER: In 1980, Hana Mandlikova posted a 6-0, 7-5 victory over Australia's own Wendy Turnbull. This is the second straight Grand Slam final to feature two women without a major, as Sloane Stephens beat Madison Keys in last year's U.S. Open final.
