Samantha Stosur’s official website nurtures simple, old-school and user-friendly design, without music and fleshy features. Large letters in the navigation menu clearly take you to Sam’s tournament schedule, news, photos, video, blog and biography.
In the right sidebar there is a welcome note and other things you may like to check back for – like Sam’s current ranking, her upcoming tournament and match, and a link to Sam’s Facebook page, an obligatory feature nowadays. Sometimes there is also a drop-down menu containing archives dating back to December 2007.
Sam updates her blog from time to time, and in addition to giving first-hand behind-the-scenes information, she answers fan questions.
I like Sam’s website because it’s very straightforward and easy to use, which is, of course, most important.
I hope you read this Sam. As Australias top female player we are expecting a lift in form. You have a few good years left in you game but your top 10 position is seriously questionable at the moment. Have you lost your edge now that you are a slam champ and have loads of cash?
