The winner at Melbourne Park in 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009 and 2010, another triumph would see Williams equal Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert's tally of 18 major titles and draw her closer to German great Steffi Graf's 22 .Williams's place in the tennis pantheon is assured, but her coach Patrick Mouratoglou believes the American could secure a calendar Grand Slam, which would make her the third woman after Court in 1970 and Graf in 1988 to achieve the feat in the open era. In contrast to the men's tour, which has been blessed by the power struggles between Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray in recent seasons, the women's tour is crying out for a genuine challenger to Williams.Tellingly, Azarenka avoided Williams during both her runs to the Australian title, with the American eliminated after being hobbled by injuries.
