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."

Stosur stands third oldest in the Top 100 in the WTA rankings, behind the Williams sisters.
