Hewitt hails Stosur’s US Open triumph

Sydney, Sep 14: Australian tennis star Lleyton Hewitt has hailed Samantha Stosur after she produced the match of her life to win the US Open women's singles title.
"It's fantastic for her and, obviously, women's tennis at the moment is pretty wide open as well for her to really try and make a stand on it," Fox Sports quoted Hewitt, as saying.
"I think anytime anyone wins a grand slam, you hope that's going to help the growth of that sport as well and the profile of the sport," he added.
Stosur became the first Australian woman to win a grand slam singles title in 31 years when she defeated Serena Williams 6-2, 6-3, in the final at New York's Arthur Ashe Stadium on Saturday.
The win makes Stosur her country's first female Grand Slam champion since Evonne Goolagong Cawley won Wimbledon in 1980 and the first Australian woman to win the US Open women's singles crown since Margaret Court Smith in 1973.
Hewitt, who won the Wimbledon in 2002, was the last Australian to win a grand slam title.
