SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- USANA Health Sciences, Inc. (NYSE: USNA), a global nutritionals company that provides supplements to over 600 professional and Olympic athletes, congratulates three of its product-sponsored Women's Tennis Association (WTA) players on a tremendous performance at the 2011 U.S. Open.
Australian player, Samantha Stosur, defeated Serena Williams in the finals to win the 2011 U.S. Open Singles title. American duo Liezel Huber and her partner Lisa Raymond won the women's doubles championship, while Melanie Oudin and her partner Jack Sock, also Americans, won the mixed doubles event.
"Tennis can be unpredictable," says Stosur, the first Australian woman to win a Grand Slam since 1980. "The only thing you can control is your own performance—making sure you train hard, eat right and get the proper supplementation."
Huber, who recently regained WTA doubles top ranking, says: "I'm one of the oldest players on the WTA tour and things really started to turn around for me when I discovered USANA and started paying attention to my health, diet and nutrition. I feel on top of my game."
"I want to thank all my fans and sponsors for their support not only of me and my fellow WTA players, but of women's tennis in general," says Oudin. "USANA has been a big supporter of women's sports, and I'm proud that a USANA brand ambassador has won every title possible for a female player to win in the U.S. Open."
"We couldn't be more proud of Sam, Liezel and Melanie," says Dan Macuga, USANA VP of Marketing, Public Relations and Social Media. "They are outstanding athletes who have worked hard to get where they are, and USANA is behind them 100% of the way."
