Samantha's forehand drive

    The win was Samantha's 500th career match victory. Samantha said: "I served very well today, and I think that kind of set the tone for the match. Also I don't think her serve was as effective as it was the last time we played, but I was returning well, too. I think my returning gave me some inroads in her service games, which really helped me." WTA story

n21 s2 Samantha Stosur AUS d n75 Irina Falconi USA 6-1, 7-5 Wed

    Samantha said: "The first set was so quick and I told myself to keep concentrating at the start of the second set. But unfortunately I didn't do that and played a bad service game to go down a break early on. I don't think I was hitting as hard or as deep in the second set, but at 5-2 I started to put a bit more on the ball and when I got the break back I started to feel good in the rallies again."
