BIRMINGHAM, England - Sometimes holding serve after breaking is tough, but that was not the case at all for Sam Stosur at the Aegon Classic on Wednesday, as she broke Christina McHale for a 6-1, 3-2 lead and proceeded to serve up a perfect game - four points, four aces - to consolidate the break.

Stosur ended up winning the match a few games later, 6-1, 6-3, and that four ace game was the talk of the tournament - but it's hard to talk about a phenomenon like that if it doesn't have a nickname.

We've searched and searched, and we can't find an official nickname or tennis term for serving a love game with four aces - so it's up to you, what do you think it should be called? Tell us now!

There's more - earlier this year at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, USANA launched the Aces For Humanity campaign, where every ace served at Premier-level events will translate into a donation to the USANA True Health Foundation, whose mission is to provide the most critical human necessities to those who are suffering or in need around the world. For every ace served by any player, the WTA will donate $5, and for every ace served by a USANA Brand Ambassador, the WTA will donate $10.

Stosur is a USANA Brand Ambassador - so Stosur raised $40 for charity with just four swings.

Eugenie Bouchard, Sloane Stephens, Zhang Shuai, Monica Puig, Madison Keys and Zheng Jie are USANA ambassadors as well. USANA has been the Official Health Supplier of the WTA since 2006.

"I can trust USANA's products because I know what I'm taking is safe and pure," Stosur, the 2011 US Open champion and a former World No.4, commented. "I'm thankful for our strong partnership and am proud to be one of the 600-plus elite athletes around the world who trust their health to USANA."
