If Stosur defends her title

Would that diminish the status of the US Open for you, the same way the random winners have done for Roland Garros? Or is Stosur just that great? Her titles would be Osaka, Charleston, US Open, US Open.

Absolutely not. Sam is a great player, and if she defends it she'll probably have beaten at least 2 of Vika, Maria and Serena.
This would also make her a saviour of the tour according to you, is Ana back on your shit list yet?

No, Stosur is a great player I don't know why people try to make her look so bad.

The lack of titles is due to mentality.

Azarenka and Kvitova are worse than Ivanovic has ever been. I would not mind if Ivanovic wins the tournament.

She won't. Let's not even entertain this thought.

Re: If Stosur defends her title

If she does good on her.

But never going to happen. The three other woman in her half pretty much own her so no way she is getting through two matches against them

Lena D and Navratilova
Petrova, Zvonareva, Clijsters, Li
----------------------
Azarenka, Floptra/Shitra
Halep, Hantuchova, Goerges, Keys, Pavlyuchenkova, Makarova, Sharapova, The Other Russians, Koukalova, Safarova,
Kerber, Bacsinszky, Muguruza, Bencic, Paszek, Kanepi, Shvedova, Martic, Watson, Robson, Kimiko, Barthel, Erakovic, Sevastova

Re: If Stosur defends her title

It takes an amazing player to defend a title let alone a slam title at that. So no it wouldn't.

Re: If Stosur defends her title

This is way premature, since Sam has to get past two formidable obstacles just for the privilege of playing (almost certainly) Serena in the finals. But if she does it, it will be great, and I can't see that anybody but her most rabid haters, and maybe fans of the others who she beats on the way, would be upset by it. Btw: how can somebody defending a slam title be considered in any way random?

Re: If Stosur defends her title

Well if she can beat Vika, Maria(or Marion) and possibly Serena then NO.

But well the chances of that happening are quite less.

Re: If Stosur defends her title

who's this kworb,guy?! If Stosur defended this title..it means she had beaten Vika, probably Masha and possibly Serena back to back to back ( those are all the other major winners this year) and would be the only player other than Venus who has beaten Serena in multiple major finals.

So no..that means she would have done an amazing job.

Always bet on black!
