Sloane Stephens says she was just joking when she said SW's Cmons were disrespectful, a way she eases tension w her coach w/ humor

Re: Sloane Stephens calls Serena Williams' come ons 'disrespectful'

Extremely disappointed Sloaney Baloney backed down on her truthful comments about Rena, whatever though we all know she meant it and we all know it's true. Hopefully Serena will get a wake up call and start being more respectful of other players.

Re: Sloane Stephens calls Serena Williams' come ons 'disrespectful'

so many players have been accused of disrespect during matches.

Sharapovas grunts when she first came on tour
Henin's Allez when she won big points

are a couple of examples off the top of my head.

Queen Vee, Super Rena, Krazy Kuzzie

Re: Sloane Stephens calls Serena Williams' come ons 'disrespectful'

She had a big smile on her face when she said it and didn't look bothered at all, so I'm inclined to believe her when she says it was a joke

Serena will continue to say her come-ons during a match like she has been doing for YEARS. The good players don't let come-on's and fist-pumps bother them during a match but then again that's the reason why they win tournaments.

I didnt see the match, but damn Sloan!, she does this even against venus. Are you people sure they are friends?...I said at the beginning of the year I was going to follow sloan but now I don't know now. She may
Of felt this, but to voiced this publicly is low class against a so called close friend that took your punkazz under their wing. Low class move Sloan.

Re: Sloane Stephens calls Serena Williams' come ons 'disrespectful'

tbh, it looks like she meant it, in the fire of the competition, but i guess it would be tough for all of us to have your friend screaming in our face some come ons during a tennis match (league in your town or smth)

her coach turned it to joke and she eased up

with experience coming she'll stop to care i guess. friendship is off the court, on court is fight

Was it a Serena fan who felt the need to start this thread to vent their frustrations? No.

Have Serena fans come into this thread to state their opinions, much as you have? Yes.

Doesn't seem clear to me who is the most "pressed" about who/what.

(4) There is no path to victory for Williams.Keys wins in straight easy sets.

Aaaaaah missed the match but got up in time to read the drama on twitter. Personally I think Sloane was wrong and a little delusional, but she's young and she'll learn really quickly hopefully that there is no friendship in sports. She can ask Venus😀

Also although she backtracked a bit I see no reason for all the attacks. She not the first and she's not going to be the last.

What I find amusing is the sudden I hate her because of one silly mistake. I see a whole lot of Vika love by Serena only fans on here, but I keep wondering how long it will last and what will trigger their wrath.

The older sister already got it so I know it's due the young adopted sister 😃

I hope Sloane goes directly to Serena and admit she was just pressed and move on. And hopefully the fans as well.
