Samantha Stosur’s photo shoot with US Open trophy in Times Square


According to US Open tradition, Samantha Stosur did a photo shoot with her maiden Grand Slam trophy in Times Square, New York City. Players usually pick a glamorous look for the occasion, but Sam kept it casual and beachy in the white and red stripes of her Lacoste dress.

Stosur has realized it’s not easy being a Grand Slam champion— she had to use three alarm clocks to wake up and fulfill all the obligations to the media and reportedly slept for only an hour and a half.

The Australian’s frozen face expression and stiff smile suggest she’s still shocked by her achievement and how dominantly she won the final against Serena Williams.

Check out Sam’s ankles, by the way! 🙂

Reminder: In 2009 and 2010 Kim Clijsters showed off her trophy in Times Square and Central Park and before her, in 2008, it was this year’s runner-up Serena Williams in a sexy red dress.


  1. when I saw wta’s new ranking I just can’t stop laughting!
    1 caroline 2 maria 3 vika 4 vera ..5 li na
    the only one player in the top5 who won a slam sthis season is..N5!!!!!
    even more ridiculous.. te only player on top4 who played a major final is sharapova!!!!
    ok caroline won many tournaments..she’s not a n1 player but she is a top3…but vika?? vera????
    I don’t understand really!
    poor sam, petra, didn’t played so her ranking even if she won a slam is alright…

  2. How come it’s not fair? Okay, it’s ridiculous to have slamless no.1 for so long, but it’s not Caroline’s fault the others, except maybe Maria, are not consistent at all. Just look at the number of points. Li, Kvitova and Stosur may have GS, but their results besides that weren’t that impressive. Why are they poor, it’s not rankings fault Li and Kvitova lost in the 1st rounds after their greatest success? If they play well again, they’ll climb at the rankings, it’s pretty simple. I think it’s not the problem in system, it’s in players. Ps. Samantha looked cute, but I actually prefer when players look more glamorous.

  3. for me there is a problem in the system.. Wta gives 470 points for winning a small tournament!! This things doesn’t happen in atp!
