Sam Stosur took some time ahead of her Brisbane International campaign to learn some new tricks.
Stosur paid a visit to the Brisbane International ballkids and learned some tricks of their trade.
Stosur is the only Australian woman since 1980 to win a Grand Slam title - the 2011 US Open.
She's also the only Australian-born woman since 1985 to reach the Top 5 - she got to No.4 in 2011.
She had three Top 10 seasons in 2010, 2011 and 2012, finishing No.6, No.6 and No.9, respectively.
The last two seasons haven't been as spectacular - she finished No.18 in 2013 and No.23 in 2014.
But she won eight of her last nine matches of 2014, the semis in Beijing and a title in Osaka.
Stosur is playing Brisbane and Sydney ahead of her home Grand Slam - how will the Aussie No.1 do?
