Sam Stosur wins her second Newcombe Medal as Australia’s outstanding player.

Stosur beat out fellow WTA player Jarmila Gajdosova and ATP World Tour players Bernard Tomic and Matthew Ebden for this year’s Newcombe Medal. “Bernard, Jarka and Matt all had good years – up until the US Open I don’t think I was winning this award tonight,” Stosur said. “Tennis can change quickly and you have to be ready to take advantage of moments when they come. “Tennis history in Australia is absolutely huge. We’ve always had really great champions. We were lacking a little on the women’s side, but now everything’s coming together, and we’ll see better and better results in the future.”

The awards ceremony was a nice change for Stosur. “It’s fun to get dressed up and enjoy these moments. These nights don’t happen all the time, so when they do you have got to really embrace it and enjoy it. Tonight has been another fantastic night. It’s something really special to come together as the big tennis community we are and share these awards together.”

Stosur’s home Grand Slam, the Australian Open, is just around the corner. “I ended 2011 really well. Of course the US Open, but then playing well in Turkey too. I’ve come off a good break and I feel refreshed and ready to go again. Now it’s just a matter of knuckling down and doing my work on and off the court. If you prepare as best you can, hopefully you’ll get the best results possible.”
