Sam Stosur on a high after straight sets win at Wimbledon

Sam Stosur has become the first Australian to advance at Wimbledon, after enjoying some brief R and R at home.

The Gold Coaster beat Poland’s Magda Linette in straight sets in what is her 14th Wimbledon campaign.

Stosur didn’t seem to let the little-known Pole trouble her too much, winning 7-5, 6-3.


Next she will go head to head with Germany’s Sabine Lisicki, who beat  American Shelby Rogers in less than an hour to advance.

Australians in action on Tuesday include Daria Gavrilova, Bernard Tomic and Nick Kyrgios and John Millman.
