Samantha Stosur had to dig deep to finally overcome Maria Kirilenko in an epic encounter. Stosur eventually triumphed 6-2 6-7 (15-17) 6-3 in a match that featured the longest tie-break in a women’s singles match in grand slam history. The 25th seed Kirilenko had fought off five match points and being helped by three correct line call challenges, including two on the same match point. But it was all in vain for Kirilenko as Stosur put the disappointment of failing to close the match out behind her by breaking early in the decider and holding on for victory. In the quarter-finals Stosur will face second seed Vera Zvonareva, who survived what many pundits expected to be a much tougher test against Wimbledon semi-finalist Sabine Lisicki, triumphing 6-2 6-3.
