Goolagong calls US Open champ Stosur “Twinkletoes”
Evonne Goolagong Cawley, the last Australian woman to win a Grand Slam singles title, didn’t wait long to congratulate the next, texting Sam Stosur moments after her U.S. Open win to say: “Twinkletoes, you finally have got what you deserved.”
A television was brought into a hotel meeting room so Goolagong Cawley could watch the last part of Stosur’s 6-2, 6-3 victory over Serena Williams, which ended the 31-year drought for Australian women at tennis majors.
“I couldn’t be more delighted, it’s been a great morning, the best in Australia for years,” Goolagong Cawley, who first selected Stosur on an Australiain Fed Cup team 10 years ago, told The Associated Press.
“And a great week, really, with Ashleigh Barty getting through to the junior semifinals there.”
