Welcome to the Top 20 Sloane Stephens!

Sloane just cracked the Top 20 for the first time with her win over Jovanovski and reaching the QF of AO for the first time.

Congrats

Re: Welcome to the Top 20 Sloane Stephens!

People were whining the whole previuos year about Cibulkova, Kirilenko, Makarova and Safarova having poor Slam results, easy draws and poor stats against top 20 players, but now when it's about young American player, no one gives a shit

Congrats, Sloane, though. Well deserved!

Re: Welcome to the Top 20 Sloane Stephens!

She's never been in a final of a WTA event or won a title. I wonder how many top 20'ers have had that stat before?

Still, well done. Always good when you win when you are suppose to.

Well she does have a point, he hasn't beaten a top opponent in this event and has not been to a final. Also top 20 is just a walk-in door many players have got into the top 20 easily because there is so much gap between 16 and 17 has been around 500 and then the gap between 17 and 30 is also around 500. which means you can jump from 30-17 with one good result. Once she gets top 15 i would say that would be more of an achievement. top 20 in this days is no different with being in the top 30.

That's interesting. So it appears she's gotten there off of the strength of her performances in the majors. That's the absolute best place to peak so good for her.
