Sam Stosur feels she’s not getting the treatment she deserves. Stosur won the US Open in 2011 beating Serena Williams, but the Australian veteran who’s into the third round talked about how she couldn’t get a car to the tournament and she was kicked off the practice courts by Serena.
“When you are still in the tournament you try and book a car they say you can’t have one before 10:00 because you don’t have a match, I don’t think it’s good enough,” Stosur said. “It’s not just me. There have been many players in that situation. It’s a Grand Slam. It’s one of the biggest tournaments in the world. You got to be able to provide transport to players when they need it.
“(Serena) kicked me off my practice court yesterday, too,” she added. “I had 45 minutes yesterday. I went on three different courts, so not ideal.”
“I’m not trying to make a big deal about it. It’s not just my situation. There are many players in the same boat. I think it’s just a bad run of coincidences kind of the last couple of days. It’s just the way it is.”
After her easy win today, Stosur will play fellow French Open runner-up Sara Eranni.
