Of the young Aussies that played in the Canberra Women's Classic, Stosur probably had the best shot variation. Powerful forehand, strong second serve. Always looking to come to the net. She's listed as being 175 cm (5' 9"), but actually looks shorter than that (has a similar build to some of our soccer players - nuggety). Seems to have a very good temperament - during matches and on the practice court.
In Canberra, she (unexpectedly) lost in the first round of qualifying to Vanessa Webb (who also won today) and it seemed be a combination of Stosur thumping balls too long, Webb's height and Webb's lefthandedness.
