It was a pretty good year for Samantha Stosur in 2012. Of course, coming off 2011 when she won the US Open singles title, going winless in 2012 is a bit of a letdown. But as great as she is, she does “only” have 3 career singles titles. She’s reached 12 WTA singles finals but is 3-9. Again in 2012, she reached the final at Doha and Moscow, falling to Victoria Azarenka and Caroline Wozniacki respectively. If she can improve her record in finals a bit, we could see a lot more titles and a higher ranking. Nonetheless, she is still one of the elite players on tour and potentially a dangerous draw for anybody.
