Oakley’s Samantha Stosur finally put an end to a dubious finals jinx in Osaka on Sunday, beating Francesca Schiavone for her very first singles title on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour at the HP Open. Before this week, Stosur’s Tour résumé was about as complete as any, apart from one thing. She had 22 titles and the No.1 ranking in doubles and a large collection of Top 10 wins in singles, making it as high as No.13 herself. But that first singles title continued to elude her, even though she had been a win away many times, going 0-5 in finals. But that all changed in Osaka.
