iCool user Sam Stosur has won Australia's first USA Open grand slam in a decade. iCool Ice bath systems have been part of Sam's training for several years.

 

Sam defeated one of toughest players in the world, Serena Williams 6-2, 6-3 in one hour and 23 minutes. An amazing victory.

In doing so, she followed in the footsteps of countryman and former world number 1 Lleyton Hewitt, who toppled the then-favourite Pete Sampras in the US Open final in 2001. Lleyton also owns an iCool system and has used his iCool for training for several years.

 

 

Sam played fearlessly In front of a 23,000 strong crowd at Arthur Ashe Stadium and grew in confidence despite the home-crowd support and broke again for a 5-2 lead, serving it out with ease.

 

Sam has been an incredibly dedicated and highly respected athlete and has overcome many setbacks to show what real champions are made of.

 

The iCool company is particularly proud that yet another world champion comes from our home town of Gold Coast, Australia.
