Victoria Duval the Next Big Thing After Upseting Sam Stosur at U.S. Open
It’s always special when an extremely young athlete pulls off an accomplishment reserved for a savvy veteran and that’s exactly what happened in the first round of the women’s U.S. Open on Tuesday. Playing in only her second Grand Slam tournament, 17-year-old Victoria Duval upset 2011 U.S. Open champion Samantha Stosur in a match that lasted over two and a half hours. But it was time well spent because now the young American is an overnight sensation.
By now you’ve probably seen highlights of the match and heard the crowd’s chant of “U-S-A” during Duval’s epic upset win that earned her congratulations on Twitter from the likes of Lil Wayne and Amar’e Stoudemire. Put simply, she was beyond ecstatic to receive congrats from the former as she screamed “Weezy F Baby” when told about it…because she doesn’t even have a Twitter account of her own!
Now there’s something you don’t see everyday: a young, talented athlete on the rise who isn’t consumed by her money and Twitter account. Duval was rank 296th in the world before her incredible win that has made her somewhat of a household name. But if she advances further than the second round at this year’s U.S. Open, this is only the beginning.
