World number 14 Stosur will feature in the singles draw, with the 52nd ranked Gavrilova to join her in the women’s doubles.
Gavrilova was born in Russia, but last year gained her Australian citizenship
She’s a massive Carlton fan, thanks to the influence of her boyfriend, Aussie tennis player Luke Saville
If you need any further proof of how much Gavrilova has embraced life as an Aussie, she loves nothing more than a trip to Kmart
Is serious about her coffee
Spent Australia Day at the beach
And is learning to surf
Stosur is in ripping form
Having made the semi-finals of the French Open. With the Olympics set to be held on hard court - the surface on which Stosur has won her only grand slam, the US Open - she’s in with a red hot chance for a medal.
The real question is, will she rip out a pair of green and gold sunnies?
