Biography

Samantha Stosur was introduced to tennis at the age of eight by her friend, and considering what she has achieved since, it was a wise decision. The Australian, who is known for her powerful kick serve and heavily top-spun forehand, has won five Grand Slam titles - including the 2011 US Open singles crown and the 2008 mixed doubles title at Wimbledon. She calls the Gold Coast, in Australia, home.
