Victoria Azarenka was the two-time defending champion, but was defeated by Agnieszka Radwańska in the quarterfinals, thus ending her 18-match winning streak at the Australian Open.[3][deprecated source]

By winning her third round match, women's top seed Serena Williams broke Margaret Court's record of 60 match victories at the Australian Open.[4]

Eugenie Bouchard became the first Canadian to reach the semi-finals in the Major since Carling Bassett-Seguso in the 1984 US Open. This was her fourth Major appearance in the main draw (and the first time as a seeded player in the tournament).[5]
