Samantha Stosur wins her first Grand Slam title at the US Open

What a match between Samantha Stosur and Serena Williams in the finale of the US Open 2011.  Stosur was considered the underdog in many previews of many well known journalist of the much anticipated finale of the US Open 2011 for the women but managed to hold more than her own versus hard hitting Serena Williams. Stosur won in straight sets 6-2  6-3 and took home her maiden Grand Slam title.  I watched the match with medicine leftovers from yesterday’s match between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic.  Even an Online Canadian Pharmacy would envy me of the stash that was laid out on my table.  But in some matches you really need downers. Just like the match between Stosur and Williams was one of them.
