First Grand Slam title for Sam Stosur

After that first set I kind of sat down and I could feel my heart pounding out of my chest, and I thought, Okay, I’m a set up now; I’ve got a chance to win one out of the next two and I’ve got a chance.

What a surprise at Flushing Meadows! Sam Stosur stunned Serena Williams 6-2 6-3 to capture her first Grand Slam title.
Sam totally overwhelmed Serena from first point on.
She is the first Australian woman to win a Grand Slam since Evonne Goolagong (Wimbledon 1980) and the first US Open since Margaret Smith Court in 1973.

Congrats to Sam for her well deserved victory!
