Samantha Stosur demolishes Vera Zvonareva in the Family Circle Cup final


Samantha StosurSamantha Stosur won her second singles title on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour by impressively storming past Vera Zvonareva 6-0 6-3 in the final of the Family Circle Cup in Charleston.

Before we knew it the first set was over, the Australian won it in 18 minutes! The second set started in a similar fashion, with Stosur racing to a 3-0 lead. In the tenth game, Zvonareva woke up, won her first game, and soon followed it by winning two more games. However, the match remained in Stosur’s hands and she wrapped up victory on her first match point.

The fourth-seeded Stosur was a favorite on paper compared to the seventh-seeded Zvonareva. In addition, Stosur had entered the final leading their head-to-head series 4-2. However, Zvonareva had started the match with ten singles titles to her name, compared to Stosur’s one.

World No.11 Stosur earned $107,000 with the victory in the Family Circle Cup final, while world No.22 Zvonareva earned $55,500 for her runner-up position. (photo: sr_cranks)


  1. Congrats to Sam! She was very good and solid today. When I look at Sam from a year ago and on Sam today, I see how much she has improved 🙂

  2. Vera only won 6 points in the first 8 games! lol.

    did anyone see her get all annoyed? that poor racquet. i think she hit it about 6 times.

  3. It was really childish from Vera. She hit it like 5 times and the kicked it under the sofa. Sam seems more matured and grown, not very emotional on the court usually.

  4. Vera is an emotional yoyo, that is what lost her a lot of well played matches. Once she gets nervous she cannot calm down. It’s a shame because she is a talented player but her mental game is just weak.

  5. Let get psycho(logical) maybe Vera Z. got rattle after witnessing Wozzy’s injury, it reminded Vera Z. of her injury last year, in the same place (Charleston), same type of injury (ankle). Before the final Vera had not drop a set.

  6. Vera seemed very affected by Wozniacki’s injury. Wozniacki won the game after the medical timeout, and she was badly injured.
