French Open finalist Samantha Stosur of Australia continued her impressive run of form at Stuttgart's WTA tournament by winning the doubles with partner Sabine Lisicki on Sunday.

The pair enjoyed a 6-1, 7-6 (7/5) win over Germany's Kristina Barrois and Jasmin Woehr in the final and Stosur walks away with a winner's cheque of 35,020 US dollars.

In the singles tournament, the 27-year-old knocked out second-seed Vera Zvonareva in the last eight, but lost the semi-final to local favourite Julia Goerges, who faces world number one Caroline Wozniacki in Sunday's final.

Stosur is expected to move up to the ranking of sixth in the world when the WTA rankings are next released.
