Top seeded Sam Stosur is already looking forward to a US Open rematch with Serena Williams at Brisbane later this week. Stosur and Serena could clash in the semifinals if both reach that round.
“It’d be great to play her again and this time it’d be on my turf in Brisbane,” the 27-year-old Stosur joked. “It’d be great for both of us to play a match like that and great for the spectators. Obviously everyone will pump it up and it’ll be great for the tournament.”
The controversial win for Stosur at the US Open was her first Grand Slam title and her crowning achievement.
“Playing in an occasion like that and really getting through it as well as what you could ever hope for I guess proves that all the work you do leading up and all those previous experiences,” Stosur said. “Whether they’re good or bad or you won or you lost, it all counted for something to get to that point.”
The top Australian begins 2012 against Belarusian Anastasiya Yakimova on Pat Rafter Arena on Monday night. Stosur could meet Kim Clijsters in the quarterfinals before that date with Serena.
