Serena Williams vs. Samantha Stosur: Rogers Cup Round 2 Preview
In what will be a rematch of the 2011 US Open final, top seed Serena Williams will confront the former World No.4 Samantha Stosur for a place in the third round of the Rogers Cup in Montreal on Wednesday. Can the Superwoman avenge her loss or will the Aussie upset her once again on the day?

World No.1 Serena Williams may have won the tour leading four titles including the recent won she captured last week in Stanford, but the American has been unable to add to her tally of Majors in 2014. In fact, for the first time in some years she has failed to reach at least the quarter-finals of any of the three Slams played so far in the season.  

And, recently Williams made it absolutely clear that her focus now was to win the US Open for the sixth time this year. The Floridian got her US Open Series underway in the best possible manner as she defended her Bank of The West Classic title in fine fashion with a straight sets victory over the German grinder Angelique Kerber.

Meanwhile, Samantha Stosur has been in disastrous form ever since the advent of the New Year. Actually, the Gold Coast resident has won successive matches in only two hard court events – the Aussie Open and in Hobart. While at the Grand Slam of the Asia Pacific she was outplayed by Ana Ivanovic in round 3, in the Tasmanian capital she fell to Klara Koukalova in the semis. Her form has gone from bad to worse in recent days as she has arrived in Canada on a four match losing run.

Head-to-Head: Serena has a 6-3 lead over Stosur and has defeated her in their last two matches as well. Yet again, the 17-time Grand Slam champ will head into the match as the crushing favorite.
