We'd be lying if we tried to claim that this was the 2019 Australian Open women's final that we were expecting. Despite Naomi Osaka taking the ultimate Grand Slam of last year and Petra Kvitova's two previous Wimbledon wins, this year's field was just so strong.
Not that that matters now, and we've compiled this handy guide for watching the 2019 Australian Open final on TV or by live stream online, no matter where you are in the world – you can even watch it for FREE in some areas.
For some people, Naomi Osaka's US Open win in September was a fluke, particularly defeating the mighty Serena Williams in the final after her opponent suffered an on-court meltdown. But getting to two consecutive Grand Slam finals is absolutely no accident and the 21-year-old world number 4 will want to reinforce why she should be a force to be reckoned with in women's tennis for the foreseeable future.
And Petra Kvitová's story is equally as enchanting, after the veteran champion was horribly attacked with a knife in a burglary just over two years ago. The Czech will be looking for her first major win in five years after a comeback to tennis worthy of a film script. Will it be a happy Hollywood ending?
Whatever happens, it's sure to be an exciting crescendo to the tournament so make sure you're tuned into an Osaka vs Kvitova live stream by following one of the options below.
