The first major of 2017, the Australian Open in Melbourne sets the tone for the rest of the season. The reigning champion, Angelique Kerber, returns to Australia as the top seed and the No. 1 player in the world. Serena Williams, seeded second, is a six-time Australian Open champion, and she'll be looking for revenge after a shocking loss to Kerber in the 2016 final. 

Fellow Top 10 players Agnieszka Radwanska, Simona Halep, Karolina Pliskova, Dominika Cibulkova and Garbine Muguruza are legitimate contenders for the coveted trophy.
