Stosur Wins Japan Women’s Open
Australia’s Samantha Stosur claimed the title at the Japan Women’s Open yesterday after defeating Italy’s Francesca Schiavone 7-5, 6-1. This is Stosur’s first WTA singles title so I’m sure she’s very excited. Stosur advanced to the finals after eliminating top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki on Saturday.
The pairing with Schiavone was pretty good since Stosur was the third seed and the Italian was fourth but, really, there wasn’t much competition here. Stosur dominated for most of the match and was able to seal the deal in just one hour and eight minutes.
