WATCH—Court Report from November 29th:
Samantha Stosur is reuniting with a childhood coach, Nick Watkins, as she aims to rebuild her singles ranking.
The 35-year-old former Grand Slam champion is down to No. 72 following wrist problems and lackluster play. Stosur had been working with Josh Eagle, but is now doing her offseason training with Watkins.
"I want to play singles as long as I can. I still think it's in me to do a lot better than I have," she told AAP. "I've just done a couple of weeks with Nick on the Gold Coast and absolutely loved it."
A massive thank you to Nick and Mitch @hpta_gc for helping me these past 2 weeks on court. I loved every day. It has been almost 20 years since I’ve been on court with Nick when he was my coach when I was a junior and he is still just as energetic and insightful as ever ???????????? pic.twitter.com/lSk1atdXJX— Samantha Stosur (@bambamsam30) November 24, 2018
