Something that Stosur has very much in common with Mauresmo.

What do these two have in common? They were both known to be great chokers, but made immense improvements to overcome this.

They also look pretty manly, as well as can't play well in their home slam.

I admit that I instantly thought about something very different when reading the title...

I think it's pretty much the worse-kept secret on the tour, isn't it? Isn't her girlfriend even in her box sometimes? If she is, I would love for her to come out to send a positive signal to other players who have to hide

I just realized the topic was opened by a user who made some homophobic statements before...so I think the intend was to hint as this fact.

They are both lovely people who deserve privacy and respect is probably the main similarity.

Great servers who always had potential winning a slam late in their career? Also, winning their first slam on a surface other than their best?

They both have unique playing styles in today's games and are kinda masculine, too.

Re: Something that Stosur has very much in common with Mauresmo.

Has Stosur really been known as a choker in the same way Mauresmo was?

Mauresmo first made the top 10 in 1999 and didn't win a slam until 2006 but was always in the running for it but never seemed to make the breakthrough then came YEC 2005 and two slams in 2006. Mauresmo always seemed to have the game but never the mind.

For most of her career Stosur has looked pretty ordinary (the illness didn't help) not really a contender for slams and it's only in the last year or so she's put her game together effectively enough to win a slam. I don't think the choking has really been the problem - after all before her US win she'd only had two or three deep runs at a slam - it was more she wasn't good enough.

Kind of, I'd say. Mauresmo showed stunning promise early on, whereas Sam took much, much longer to develop into a decent player, but Sam lost five finals before winning one - it really did look as though she would always freeze on the big occasion.

I almost think it was an advantage for her playing Serena. Against Schiavone, she was expected to win, and her form coming into the final had been blistering. No-one gave her a snowball in hell's chance against Serena, so the pressure was off. Maybe yesterday was a bit like that, too.
