I mean, is Sloane pregnant or what Kim was way superior, if you ask, and seems to remain as such. Stephens has a lot of winning to do to be even compared to Kim.

I feel like Slow Anne still doesn't really know what to do with the weapons she has.

Re: Is Sloane the next Kim Clijsters?

Clijsters was an offensive player who happened to play great defense. Stephens is basically the reverse. So no.

Sloane is not very similar to the former defensive number ones (Angelique Kerber, Caroline Wozniacki, Jelena Jankovic). She is unique. Stylistically, Sloane is probably closest to Simona Halep, with a better forehand, weaker backhand, and far superior mental strength.
She won a GS and suddenly she has a FAR SUPERIOR MENTAL strength than Halep?
Haleps last sets against Stephens were 6-0 6-2 6-1!

Have you even seen Stephens matches at the USO and her illegal coaching?

Since she came back, Sloane has won eight consecutive 3 set matches, including saving match points against Lucie Safarova. She did lose twice to Halep in straight sets. This is not a surprise or a testament to Halep's mental strength because Halep is number two in the world and plays a similar style. She should be beating Sloane, who is just coming back from a serious injury.

Halep's summer consisted of a third-set retirement to Makarova, two blow out losses to Svitolina and Muguruza (winning a total of 3 games), and the Maria Sharapova debacle at the US Open. In the meantime, Sloane won the US Open as the 87th ranked player, extending her perfect record in finals to 5-0.

On what planet or universe would Halep be considered the mentally stronger player?

She has achieved what Halep couldn't yet, so yes she is far mentally superior to her and don't worry that 2-5 H2H will soon be reversed.
