Sam Stosur Is Imprinted For Posterity
What she said:
“I think I’ll have to go out and buy a couple of my own stamps.”
Sam Stosur is in splits as she considers purchasing stamps commemorating her 2011 US Open victory. The special issue souvenir sheet was issued by Australia Post retailing 10*60 cents Southern Cross for AUS $15.95.
“I know Australia has done it in the past with the gold-medal winners, so to have that of myself is pretty cool. Maybe I can post a few letters.”
Stosur, on the Australia Post website, remarked:
I’m really excited Australia Post has decided to release a souvenir stamp sheet to celebrate my US Open win. The past couple of weeks have been very exciting and I’m still coming to terms with the idea of being a Grand Slam winner. This is something I’ll remember forever.
What she really meant:
“Trust Australia Post to not send me complimentary copies.”
What she definitely didn’t:
“Letter writing? Can anyone recall when they last wrote one? Maybe this will get my fans to switch over to snail mail.”
