Stosur wins US Open title


No.9-seeded Samantha Stosur upsets Serena Williams 6-2, 6-3 in US Open final.

Curious what Serena said: Williams sat down next to Stosur after the final. "All of a sudden I turned around and she was right next to me, saying, 'How do you feel? Are you really excited?' It shows what a nice person she is and what a true champion she is of the sport," Stosur added. "To separate the result a few minutes later and come over and congratulate your opponent, I thought was pretty classy." (from WTA site)
