Tanasugarn--up 6-4, 5-2--loses to Stosur in Fed Cup

At a set and 2-5 down, Sam Stosur broke Tammy Tanasugarn and won eleven straight games to win a Fed Cup match for Australia in the Asia/Oceania playoffs. Australia was already up 1-0 because Jelena Dokic won her rubber against Suchanan Vitraprasert.

Dokic, by the way, has been granted a wild card for qualifying in Memphis.

Maybe this'll finally be a turn around point for Stosur when it comes to winning in the clutch.

Ah, but if it had been the other way around, and Stosur had been up 6-4, 5-2, I think she, too, may have found a way to lose.

A good point. And, unfortunately, probably a true one, as well.

But, still, a singles result that makes her feel better about things is never a bad thing. :)

Absolutely And I certainly hope it helps her.
