January 2015 WTA Player Of The Month Finalists
Serena Williams: Serena Williams entered the Australian Open like she does every tournament, the heavy favorite, although it had been five years since Serena had her hands on the Daphne Akhurst Memorial Cup. After a tough road to the final, dropping a set to WTA Rising Stars Elina Svitolina and Garbiñe Muguruza in the third and fourth rounds, Williams was safely back in the final. There she defeated Maria Sharapova, 6-3, 7-6(5) to capture her record sixth Australian Open crown. It was her 19th Grand Slam title, passing Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert's 18. Williams now stands just three Grand Slam titles away from tying Steffi Graff's Open Era record of 22.
Maria Sharapova: Maria Sharpova started her 2015 season with a bang. The World No.2 captured her first Brisbane International title, defeating Ana Ivanovic, 6-7(4), 6-3, 6-3, in a thrilling three set final. It was Sharapova's 34th career WTA title and 13th straight year winning at least one title. Sharapova entered the Australian Open brimming with confidence knowing she would not have to face World No.1 Serena Williams until the final. After a second round scare, saving two match points against Alexandra Panova, Sharapova would not drop a set en route to the final. There she fell in straight sets to Serena Williams, but not before an exciting second set tie-break.
Venus Williams: Like Sharapova, Venus Williams started 2015 in excellent form. The former World No.1 made her second straight ASB Classic final. In a thrilling final, she came back to defeat Caroline Wozniacki, 2-6, 6-3, 6-3. It was Venus' 46th career WTA title. Venus would then go and reach her first Grand Slam quarterfinal since 2010 at the Australian Open after beating Agnieszka Radwanska, 6-3, 2-6, 6-1, in the round of 16. WTA Rising Star Madison Keys then upset Venus in the quarterfinals, 6-3 4-6 6-4.
