U.S. Open champion Samantha Stosur looks to add another Grand Slam to her collection when she begins play in the 2012 Australian Open in Melbourne.
She won the 2011 US Open singles title and was a finalist at the 2010 French Open. Stosur is ranked World No. 6 and her career high in singles is World No. 4, achieved on 21 February 2011. She is a former world No. 1 on the WTA Tour in doubles with Lisa Raymond from the United States.
Czech left-hander Petra Kvitova, who captured Wimbledon and WTA Championships titles and was named the WTA's player of the year in 2011, headlines the bottom quarter as the No. 2 seed. She could tangle with sixth-seeded U.S. Open champ and Aussie crowd favorite Sam Stosur in the quarters.
Stosur is one of nine Grand Slam champs in the draw and one of six players who could be No. 1 after the tournament is done.
