US Open 2011: Women’s Singles – Samantha Stosur (Australia) Wins Title

  • Samantha Stosur (Australia) shocks Serena Williams (United States of America) to take first major title

  • Stosur is the first Australian winner here since Margaret Court in 1973 – and that ought to be the garland that hangs around the final. But it is not. To reach her 6-2, 6-3 win, the quietly spoken Queenslander had to ignore a sustained outburst that her opponent directed at the chair umpire, Eva Asderaki, when penalised a point for intentional verbal hindrance during play.
