I think the OP said it incorrectly. She is probably the most popular young American tennis player.

Re: Is Sloane Stephens the most popular American in the WTA?

I know its still early..but as of right now i see Sloane having a Chanda Rubin, Dementieva like career. She will be able to play with any player in the top 10, but will only bring her mental game on certain occasions to take them out. Maybe she will grow up and change later but as of right now in 2013 thats what i see for her.

Re: Is Sloane Stephens the most popular American in the WTA?

I was leaning in that direction, but that forehand of hers has alot of pop and can be a serious weapon. Winners are written all over that thing

Just don't know about her mentality yet

This has to be the dumbest, most braindead thread ever.

The WS are by far the most famous, no one outside of tennis fans know who Sloane is because she hasn't done jack shit in her career so far.

OMG!!! I am crying...What in the...never mind.

Does anyone remember back in 2007-08 when EVERYBODY loved Wozniacki? Everyone thought she was an exciting new player with potential. Now, she's the most despised player on tour. It always happens when success comes.

Re: Is Sloane Stephens the most popular American in the WTA?

She's got some serious growing up to do. And honestly, she's no different than the previously hyped and potential 'breakouts' of the recent past (Oudin, Ashley Harkleroad, etc...) .

If she is able to accept that her constituents use various methods to motivate themselves, for example, she will have come a MIGHTY long way towards being comfortable out on court. If she can't even accept this, then she won't last very long. And the hype that usually follows a young and talented player will have all been, as is typical, in vain.

I wish her well however.
She could be a future slam winner, what with her potential and genetics being as they are.
