The Two Times Serena Was Unable to Defend Her Australian Open Title

Serena Williams holds five Australian Open Championship titles. History reflects that twice she couldn’t defend her title due to an unbeatable foe…medical injury!

THE FIRST TIME

2004 was the first time when a  left knee injury kept the younger Williams sister from defending her title. Serena won the 2003 Australian Open final besting sister Venus. The duo won the Doubles Title that year: the first time in 2001;  also in 2009 and 2010 .

SECOND TIME – MOST MEMORABLE

Serena stopped the comeback of Justine Henin at the 2010 Australian Open – beating Henin to win her Fifth Australian Open Title. However, Serena suffered a foot injury (stepped on a broken glass in Munich) in July 2010, which kept her from defending her Australian Open Title in 2011.

I say ‘more memorable’ because no one has ever rocked an injury boot like
World #1 Serena Williams!!!
