Samantha Stosur of Australia made an amazing comeback in third set and took more than two and a half hours to beat her Spanish opponent Anabel Medina Garrigues in three sets 6-3, 6-7 (6-8), 6-4 in Western and Southern Open Cincinnati Tennis tournament.
World no. 6 and reigning Australian Open champion was 0-4 down in the third set before she made an amazing comeback and won six games in a row to go through to the next round.
"It was an interesting third set considering the whole match was really quite close," Stosur said after the match. "There were no breaks in the second set, and then straight away I got myself in quite a hole quite quickly. I thought I could still regroup and close that gap just a little bit, and if you do that, you never know what can happen. I got on a roll and managed to squeeze it out."
She also talked about the crowd and their support which helped her a lot in that come back.
"For sure you go back to grab your towel and you hear people saying come on you can do it, or hang in there, and it's a good feeling. When they're willing you on of course you try to play a little better and hopefully win the match."
