Eight-year old Samantha Stosur received a tennis racket for Christmas and it would change her life. She spent hours at her local Adelaide courts playing with her brother and by 13 years old she got her first taste of pro-tennis on a trip to the World Youth Cup in Jakarta, Indonesia.
While Stosur developed her career as a singles player, she quickly rose to world number one in doubles competition in 2006, claiming a series of titles with partner Lisa Raymond. The duo won the US Open in 2005. In 2006 they took second at the Australian Open in 2006 and won the French Open.
Stosur’s biggest individual accomplishment came when she won the 2011 US Open, defeating three-time champion Serena Williams. It was her first Grand Slam tournament singles title and was the first US Open title win by an Australian woman since 1980.
Stosur is a proven fighter. Bouncing back from a tough battle with Lyme’s disease, she has jumped up as high as number four in the WTA singles rankings. Sam looks to continue her rising success in both singles and doubles competition.
