Australian Open: the best women’s singles matches in history

Another big challenge was Serena Williams versus Venus Williams in 2003.

By defeating her sister di lei in the final in three sets for 7–6(4), 3–6, 6–4, Serena won the first Australian Open of her career and she was confirmed as the brightest star American women’s tennis.

This was followed by six more titles in Melbourne, for a total of 7, the last of which was just in 2017, again against her sister di lei Venus. We must also remember Jennifer Capriati v Martina Hingis match in 2002. For the second year in a row, Capriati beat Martina Hingis in the Melbourne final after three thrilling sets, finished 4–6, 7–6(7) , 6–2, winning the second Australian Open title of his career.

Simona Halep v Angelique Kerber, 2018 semi-final, was one of the best matches of the season, and one of the best in Melbourne. After a very balanced and hard-fought match, Halep beat the German in three sets, with the final score of 6-3 4-6 9-7, reaching her first Australian Open final.

One of the finest matches at the Australian Open was the one between Margaret Smith and Evonne Goolagong in 1971. Smith recovered a set disadvantage over her opponent, before beating her in three sets, with the final score 2 –6, 7–6, 7–5, and winning his 10th Australian Open title.

Martina Navratilova against Chris Evert was one of the challenges that characterized the 80s. Navratilova defeated the American tennis player after three thrilling sets, with the final score of 6–7(4), 6–4, 7– 5, winning his first Australian title, in 1981.
