Sam Stosur tastes Australian Open doubles success again after 14 years

In her 17th Australian Open, after years of heartbreak in front of her home fans, the 34-year-old won a big title at Melbourne Park on Friday as she and Zhang Shuai of China beat defending champions Kristina Mladenovic of France and Timea Babos of Hungary 6-3, 6-4 to win the women’s doubles. On a court that has brought her more disappointment than any other, Stosur served out for victory to win her seventh grand slam title, adding to her US Open singles title, French Open and US Open women’s doubles titles and three mixed doubles crowns. As Babos’s final backhand went long, Stosur put her hands on her head, dropping her racket behind her, joy and relief spreading across her face. “Today was excitement and happiness at the end,” said Stosur, whose win comes 13 years after she and Lisa Raymond missed two match points before losing the final. “Obviously, you never know if you’re going to be in a grand slam final ever again. When you’re in it, you want to do everything you can possible in that moment to make the right decisions and play how you want to play, enjoy it. That’s really what we did. Now 13 years later, to be holding this one instead of the runner-up is a really good feeling.”
