Have fellow tennis players congratulated Sloane on her first GS win?

Usually when players win Slams, the other tennis players come out and congratulate them, I haven't seen anything from any other players ... Have any of them said anything about the match/her win?

Too early perhaps no? I don't know, but I thinks she will receive way more congratulations than Aljona did (not hard at all).

Defeat doesn't finish a man, quit does. A man is not finished when he's defeated. He's finished when he quits.

Serena has and am sure others have.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

Mladenovic, Gravilova, Davis..... Plus some may just have sent her a personal text message instead of a social media post.

If you don't do it on Twitter for a bunch of nosy self-righteous fans to see, don't bother.

She's like the Tom Hanks or Dave Grohl of WTA. She's friendly with everyone, never controversial, doesn't have any rivalries or factions, and is always congratulating others.

well Petra is more well known and has been on the top for a long time. Sloane is now emerging into the picture.
