Serena Williams was beyond doubt the story of Australian Open 2007. Sure Roger Federer took the men’s title without dropping a set. Yes attendance figures grew again with 554,858 fans enjoying the action. And granted Video Line Calling captured the imaginations of spectators packed into Rod Laver Arena. Nevertheless, it was the younger Williams sister who stole the show. A 17–1 shot going into the tournament and ranked No.81 in the world, Williams defeated five seeds en route to her third AO title despite being three points away from defeat in her third round match against Nadia Petrova and two points away from crashing out to Shahar Peer in the quarterfinal. Williams’ final against Maria Sharapova, played under a closed roof, was the quickest since Steffi Graf defeated Arantxa Sanchez Vicario in 1994. Federer’s third Australian Open victory, 7-6(2) 6-4 6-4, came at the expense of Fernando Gonzalez, a surprise finalist who beat Lleyton Hewitt in the third round, James Blake in the fourth and Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinal. Australia celebrated its first junior champion for 13 years when Brydan Klein took the boys’ singles title. Video Line Calling rapidly developed a fan following and players used it judiciously, 86 successful challenges made from 188 attempts in the men’s and women’s singles.
