Down Under News – Serena Williams out of the French

World number one Serena WIlliams was knocked out of the French Open. By who? And why is this Down Under News?

Because the woman who did it was Australian Samantha Stosur. She did it in almst 2 and a half hours, winning 6-2, 6-7 (2-7), 8-6. And this hot on the heels of Sam’s defeat of Justine Henin. This is the first time, apparently, any one woman has beaten both of them in the same tournament… but that’s just a statistic, so you know that it essentially means nothing.

Stosur now meets the fourth seed Jelena Jankovic in the semi-finals.
