U.S. Open Tennis 2011 Women's Final: Samantha Stosur Shocks Serena Williams In Straight Sets

Ninth-seeded Samantha Stosur beat a frustrated, emtional Serena Williams in straight sets, 6-2, 6-3, Sunday to win the 2011 U.S. Open Tennis Championships women’s title. This was Stosur’s first Grand Slam title.

After losing the first set, Williams drew a penalty from chair umpire Eva Asderaki, who ruled that Williams yelling “come on” as Stosur reached for a shot interfered with Stosur’s ability to play the ball. The penalty gacve Stosur the game, and Williams launched into what will certainly be a memorable tirade, including these memorable lines:

“You’re a hater, and you’re just unattractive inside. Who would do such a thing? And I NEVER complain.”
-
“If you’re ever walking down the hallway with me, you better walk the other way.”
-
“I get a code violation for this? I express who I am. We’re in AMERICA, last I checked.”

The men’s final will be held Monday at 4 p.m. ET. Top-seeded Novak Djokovic will face second-seeded Rafael Nadal.
