Sam Stosur has the best chance of becoming a Grand Slam champion she is likely to see in the near future, having taken out Henin and Serena Williams along the way and playing on her better surface. Coming up to the grass and hard court season where the Williams sisters always excel, and with Kim Clijsters making her return to the circuit, things are likely to get harder for the big hitting Australian.
After blasting past Jelena Jankovic, who seemingly couldn’t put a ball into the court, Sam Stosur is set to face Francesca Schiavone, someone she has had expeirence beating before. It is Sam’s best chance at becoming a Grand Slam Champion, and Australia’s first female champ in three decades.
It’s fair to say that the in-form Stosur has the power and the serve to blast past the diminutive Italian but she has had difficulty closing out big matchs and matches against big players in the past.
The question remains…. Will Sam’s nerves get the better of her?
