Samantha Stosur won the doubles at Stuttgart with German partner Sabine Lisicki on Sunday.
French Open finalist Samantha Stosur continued her impressive run of form at Stuttgart’s WTA tournament by winning the doubles with German partner Sabine Lisicki on Sunday.
The pair enjoyed a 6-1 7-6 (7-5) win over Germany’s Kristina Barrois and Jasmin Woehr in the final.
In the singles tournament, the 27-year-old Australian knocked out second-seed Vera Zvonareva in the last eight, but lost the semi-final to local favourite Julia Goerges.
Stosur is expected to move up to sixth in the world when the WTA rankings are next released.
