Serena Williams defeats Sam Stosur: “I don’t get enough credit for being a super nice person”


In a hotly anticipated match that was to be a repeat of the 2011 U.S. Open final, Serena Williams took on Australian Sam Stosur. With more intensity and less drama, the American blasted her opponent off the court for most of the match, ending with a score of 7-5, 6-3 in Williams’ favor.

Although Stosur broke Williams in the first game of the match and held a steady momentum, it didn’t last long. In pure Williams’ fashion, she broke Stosur twice, including the final game of the first set.

The start of the second set witnessed back-t0-back serve breaks for both ladies as Williams won only one of her four second serves in the first game. While an ominous start for most players, Williams rebounded back to fire six aces in the fifth game alone. Stosur failed to recover as she only won one more game before Williams took it all, 6-3.

During one particular Hawkeye challenge, Williams sort of apologized to Stosur with her racquet for incorrectly challenging a call.

“I always do [that] kinda out of habit.  I don’t mean to.  I don’t get enough credit for being, you know, a super nice person and clapping on good points.  They only focus on me yelling at umpires. I’m actually an unbelievable professional competitor out there.”

Overall, Williams blasted 20 aces for the match,  which is not only a record high this year for all WTA players, but also matches her career-high from back at the 2009 Wimbledon.

In much the same way Williams came to support Grigor Dimitrov during his top 10 defeat of Tomas Berdych yesterday, Dimitrov was spotted watching Williams’ match today.
