Re: Sloane Stephens ' Little kids goes home first week' Aka Nadia,Marion,Petra,Sam,

Sloane is always laughing and smiling when she makes comments...come on people...I don't know why you get sooo upset. And it is true what she said...which was pretty much that those who are playing better, i.e. "the big dogs" are normally in the second week. I swear its depressing how negative and rude people get on this board at times.

As people have already said, it's only an off-the-cuff remark in a some promo vid. Chill out

But being a funny crowd-pleaser only goes so far, and the fact that she has only one ITF title is a bit worrying. Maybe being a bit less happy-go-lucky and bit more ruthless (or disrespectful ) would be a good thing

I don't get the things Sloane Stephens says. But she has a great smile. The truth is if she lost in the first week she would not have said this. She was lucky to not have had to play Kvitova. She got her pigeon Robson instead. Enough said about that.

I generally like Stephens' game though. She plays all court tennis kind of like Makiri does but with a much bigger upside due her heavier groundies, much bigger serve and much stronger boday. I think she can be a top 5 player at some point and win a slam or 2. But she talks a bit too much for my taste at this stage of her career. That said she and Madison Keys are the future of American women's tennis and I hope they stay healthy and fulfill their vast potential as tennis players because they can be very good.

I don't think people are upset. They just don't agree with you.

These one off comments live forever on TF I think Sesil only once said her return would be thunderous and look how that nickname has stuck

Robson and sluts is another example.

Of course they do!

Sloane never uttered those players names but the OP put them in the thread title on purpose to lure us suckers in No one on TF will bother looking at the live video, and she will be attributed with actually saying it forever 'n ever, and it won't matter.

I don't think that Sloane is mean-intentioned at all, but she seems a bit immature, I mean, she's a top 20 player now she's in the spotlight, if she doesn't change her attitude one day she will make a 'joke' about a very serious matter and God knows what will happen.

Donít squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

Re: Sloane Stephens ' Little kids goes home first week' Aka Nadia,Marion,Petra,Sam,

Now media is just changing the context of her interview

Sloane ' she said I was too quiet , I didnt think I was on court
Media guy' she said you told her she should be more loud on court
Serena ' she did ?

So she better watch what she says

What's happened to Raonic?. He was so cute but now has a chubby face and that hair is just horrible.

For a second I thought that was Kim Clijsters speaking.
