Stosur v Navarro Olympic rematch

SAM Stosur needed only 62 minutes to beat Carla Suarez Navarro 6-1 6-3 in the first round at Wimbledon last month.

The Queenslander wouldn't mind repeating that performance in the opening round of the women's singles in the Olympics at the All England Club tonight.

Stosur, the world No.5, has drawn the Spaniard, ranked 45th in the world.

If she wins, Stosur could play the unseeded Kim Clijsters in the second round.

Joining Stosur in the bottom half of the draw is Russia's French Open champion Maria Sharapova (seeded 3) and Wimbledon finalist Agnieszka Radwanska (2) of Poland.

Stosur is scheduled to play at 11pm AEST.
