NEW YORK, NY, USA - Throughout the '70s and early '80s, Australians were a dominant force at the majors, compiling 20 of them. They experienced a bit of a drought after that, but Samantha Stosur's recent heroics have given the nation hope for more Grand Slam glory. She will be in her third Slam semifinal on Saturday when she takes on Angelique Kerber.
Here is a rundown of how Stosur and her countrywomen have performed in Grand Slam semifinals during the Open Era:
|Evonne Goolagong Cawley||18-4|
Notes: Stosur is the first Australian in a US Open semifinal since Turnbull in 1984 and the sixth of the Open Era ... Australians' 20 Open Era majors consist of 11 by Court, seven by Goolagong Cawley, one by O'Neil and one by Reid.
