Life in lockdown during coronavirus has been challenging in many ways but personally it’s been one of the most exciting and happy times of my life. On the 16th of June, my partner Liz gave birth to our beautiful little girl, Genevieve. It has been a whirlwind time but we could not imagine life without her now. Mum and Evie are doing well and it’s so amazing to be home with them both. We are absolutely in love with this little bundle and rolling with the happy chaos. We can’t wait for what’s to come and to watch little Evie grow up....Although not too quickly we hope! ????????????❤️ #babygirl #homecourt #wta #tennisaustralia #family
On Monday, Samantha Stosur announced that she and her partner Liz have welcomed their first child.
Stosur's partner gave birth to their daughter Genevieve four weeks ago. The Australian said that the four-month suspension of professional competition and lockdown in Melbourne had been "challenging in many ways but personally it’s been one of the most exciting and happy times."
The 36-year-old did not indicate if the new addition to her family will change when she plans to return to competition. Stosur won the 2011 US Open, and has been as high as No. 4 in singles. This season, she had recorded one win in four events before the suspension of play, though she still has a Top-100 ranking.
