Samantha Stosur has her sights set on the Aussie Open.

“Winning a grand slam is unbelievable but, if it was ever to be an Australian Open, that would be something else,” she said. “It is probably the most special grand slam I could possibly win so, if that does happen, that would make the top of my career. “Hopefully, I can ride this wave of confidence and belief into January. “The first grand slam for anyone is very special – but to be Australian and win the Australian Open would be massive. That’s the next dream.” Of the Australian Open expectation, Stosur said: “It is different going into the Aussie Open compared to the others – there has been a bit of expectation in previous years but next year it will be much bigger than it ever has been. “Hopefully, I can handle that – I think all these experiences will allow me to handle it as best I can. “Not too many win a grand slam in their home country – there’s probably a reason for that. “But I would love to break that mould.”

Buzzing from congratulatory texts and emails from Aussie tennis greats Evonne Goolagong Cawley and Margaret Court Smith, Stosur will “have a bit of a party” with family and friends before preparing for this month’s Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo.
