Roland Garros R3: Sloane Stephens (USA) d. Mathilde Johansson (FRA) 63 62

Awesome Sloane! As I predicted if she was swinging freely she would have absolutely no trouble with someone as one-dimensional as Johansson. Sloane really can do it all. Has easy power, a heavy forehand, good athleticism and movement, and nice hands. If she can put it all together she's going to be one hell of a player.

All we can ask is that she tries her best against Stosur. Nothing to lose.

I really like this girl and I think she has a lot of potential. Finally I have another American player worth cheering for! And one that is so calm and collected on the court and has no annoying habits that I can see.

A so called pusher made 26 winners and 31 UEs. Must have been a horrible pushing.

If Sloane improves her shot selection and footwork, she'll enter the next tier. Impressive, and composed too

Re: Roland Garros R3: Sloane Stephens (USA) d. Mathilde Johansson (FRA) 63 62

I wanted Mathilde to win so badly...

But anyway, congratulations Sloane, I'm impressed, this girl's got future.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

This girl has game. She'll probably lose easily to Sam but GS QF for her is just a matter of time I think.

Hope she can improve her backhand and 2nd serve, way too vulnerable.
26 winners .

But yeah, probably will lose easily to Stosur, hope she can play decent at least.

Awesome Sloane! Venus and Serena are probably very proud of Sloane's success on the red clay! Sloane has a good first serve and a huge forehand she also moves very well on the clay! Good job! Wonderful to see a young black female tennis player do so well at the French Open!

I really liked watching Sloane.
Strong game and confident.

Third round at a slam is enough for Johansson.
