Serena Williams: Was beaten by fellow American Sloane Stephens last year
The world No 1 was unstoppable at times last year but has not won the Australian Open for four years.
The American regained top spot in the rankings in 2013 and added two more grand slams - at Roland Garros and Flushing Meadows - to her glittering portfolio.
Only a defeat to compatriot Sloane Stephens in the last eight of the Australian Open prevented her from completing a non-calendar year Grand Slam.
She defeated Maria Sharapova in the final of the French Open but failed to land a sixth title at Wimbledon as her 34-match unbeaten run came to an end against Sabine Lisicki in the fourth round.
She was back to winning ways at the US Open, closing out the year with 18 straight wins, which included victory at the year-end WTA Championships. She extended that winning streak to 22 matches in the run up to the Australian Open.
Williams has a serve which is unrivalled in the women's game and her power from the baseline invariably sees her dominate opponents.
