Serena 6-2 6-2 in a completely anticlimatic trashing.

Sloane has a big serve, moves great and a big forehand. She will not go down easily, Serena will need to fight.

"i've nothing to lose" is one of the biggest and most stupid clichés this sport knows.

Q. What did you learn in your matches against Serena recently?

SLOANE STEPHENS: Obviously every match is a learning experience. But, I mean, you've just got to go and treat it like another match. It wasn't like, Oh, my God, I played Serena, I'm going to be so great at all these other things because she just taught me so much.

It was just another match, regular match. Little things that you just take and move on.

Q. It seemed like in that match there were some things that annoyed you a little bit about playing Serena. How do you get over that to play her the next time?

SLOANE STEPHENS: I mean, move on. Just another match. If you dwell on what happened... I mean, that was two weeks ago now, three weeks ago. I don't know how long ago that was. I mean, I played seven other matches or eight other matches, so I'm kind of past what happened then.

Q. This is your first run to a quarterfinal at a major. Serena, presuming you played her, has won 15 titles. It must be difficult to go into a match like that.

SLOANE STEPHENS: Uhm, yeah. But, I mean, that's just kind of like playing I mean, that would be if I was playing Sharapova, she's won Grand Slams. If I was playing Venus, she's won Grand Slams.

It just happens to be Serena. She's obviously one of the greatest players to ever play the game. Without all that, it's still a tennis match. You have to go out and play your game, no matter what. Without the titles, with the titles, it's still a tennis match. The court's the same size. You're still playing a regular person across the net. You've just got to go out and play.

Q. What is your relationship with her like?

SLOANE STEPHENS: Normal. Just talk whenever we see each other. Yesterday she told me I was too quiet on the court. I don't know. Then today I was thinking to myself, I'm really loud. Should I tone it down a little bit.

But, I mean, no, just normal. Just friendly stuff.
I love Sloane's interviews. Level-headed with a touch of dry humor, respectful but not overawed, doesn't allow the interviewer to lead her anywhere she doesn't want to go. Always a treat to listen to.

Re: WWW The "Disrespectful QF": Serena vs. Sloane?

I heard Serena said... "she has nothing to lose" meaning R.I.P. Sloane.

21 and counting...

Re: WWW The "Disrespectful QF": Serena vs. Sloane?

When Serena says she has nothing to lose, it is generally when she is playing a higher ranked opponent. I believe she said it this time because she only had round 4 points to defend, and now she is already in the quarters.

As for the match-up, who knows what Sloane's career will be like. She does push too much now, but she has a forehand and big 1st serve that she keeps in her back pocket. One day she may learn to use her weapons more. If so, she could challenge for big titles. She is not doing that consistently yet though.

For this match? Serena in two straightforward sets. But, this could be her most challenging match in the tournament so far.

Serena will teach Sloane a lesson, would be surprised if Sloane won more than four games.

Sloane will want to make a point, but Serena is just too strong and in great form.

I think she's going to take Sloane to the woodshed.

It'd be nice to say I hope Sloane puts up a fight but we know Serena will beat the holy spirit out of the child.
