“I’ve got as good a chance as any of the girls up there” Stosur told AAP.
“I won the US Open last year, so why not?
“I know that I can compete and beat the best girls in the world, so I’d like to think it’s possible.”
“I think you’ve got to realise what happened and why and what you did wrong and what you can improve on to not make the same mistakes again this coming year,” she said.
“Last summer I just froze and played really tight tennis and wasn’t free. I was too passive and didn’t do what I needed to do.
“That has happened a few times and it’s a matter of realising that in the moment and just taking that chance to do more rather than letting your opponent continue to dictate.”
“I don’t play my best tennis when I’m letting my opponent dictate,” she said.
“A lot of the top girls don’t, so you’ve got to realise that in the moment rather than when you’re off the court and thinking ‘I should have done this and I should have done that’.
“If I had a second chance, that’s the one thing I probably want to try and improve this year.”
