Well, the Family Circle Cup is over! But what an AMAZING display of power and domination in the 52-minute final. Samantha Stosur completely dominated Vera Zvonareva and took the championship match into the record books as the fastest final in the history of the tournament! I think Vera’s an excellent player. But Sam was just “in the zone”.
“To be able to play that well in a final is a great feeling. You always hope you’ll do that, but to actually go and perform that way is very, very pleasing,” said Stosur, who has now beaten Zvonareva five straight times.
Another fact for the record books is that Sam is now the first Australian to ever win the title! Up until recently she’s been known as more of a doubles specialist. But she’s decided to concentrate more on singles and is doing quite well. This is her second singles title.
“The first title I won is always going to be very special. It took me a while to get that,” Stosur said. “This is bigger than Osaka though. To do it on clay and playing well all week is just a great feeling. You can’t really compare the two, but this is definitely a bigger event and I’m very pleased I was able to play so well.”
