It was great to watch Samantha Stosur emphatically defeat Serena Willams this morning, to win the 2011 US Open. I’m sure Serena Williams would have wanted what would have been an emotional victory, with the 10th Anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy. As is often the case however, little Australia peeks up and stakes its place in the world, punching way above its weight.
Well done, Stosur – what a great champion you are!
