US Open Champions Sam Stosur and Novak Djokovic thorougly deserved their victories. Both employed an appropriate game plan, excellent speed around the court, penetrating backhand slice and huge, powerful inside-out forehand winners – once they had opened the court. Stosur’s vicious kick 2nd serve was also a huge factor in her win!! Above all, they showed respect for their opponents and admirable qualities of sportsmanship. Fed and Rafa were both gracious in defeat and continued to be great ambassadors for the game!
Both Stosur and Djokvic win their first US Open singles title. Novak takes his incredible run of matches to 64-2 for the year! The Aussie Sam has won the doubles title at US Open with Lisa Raymond of USA – and also reached the final of French Open last year – losing to Francesca Schiavonne. Lisa Raymond won the womens doubles title this year with Liezel Huber.
