Australian tennis star Samantha Stosur has been knocked out of the China Open.

It’s her second surprising defeat since beating Serena Williams in last month’s US Open final.

But for AFL supporters, the party that started after Saturday’s final isn’t over yet.

Sarah Shands reports.


The AFL champions Geelong are still celebrating their victory over Collingwood last weekend.

Today, Geelong supporters turned the town into a sea of blue and white to mark the club’s third premiership in just five years.

Led by their loyal cheer squad, the players and the cup itself made their way through the city centre.

Cameron Ling, Premiership Captain: “Love the town and being a part of the footy club and I know they really love us and support us as much as they can. It’s a great day a really enjoyable day today.”

But the celebrations were dampened with the announcement that Captain Cameron Ling has played his last game for the Cats and is retiring.

Vox: “I love you king Lingy good luck with whatever you do you’ve done a fantastic job.”

In New Zealand, the Wallabies have a number of selection headaches as they approach their do or die Rugby World Cup quarter final against the Springboks this Sunday.

A host of players are returning from injury including Digby Ioane who has recovered from a fractured thumb.

In Cricket, David Warner has blasted the highest individual score in the history of the Champions League hitting 135 runs off just 69 balls propelling New South Wales into the semi-finals.

He hit eleven fours and eight sixes thrashing Chennai by 46 runs.

Socceroos midfielder Matt McKay has capped a remarkable rise, after being named Australia’s male footballer of the year.

Matt McKay, Socceroos Midfielder: “First and foremost its a qualification process I want to play my part in helping the Socceroos towards 2014.”

The 28 year old has had a whirlwind 12 months.

He led Brisbane Roar to the A-League title, starred for the Socceroos at the Asian Cup and signed with the Glasgow Rangers.
