Re: Sloane Stephens:the new Serena?

So she's the new Serena since she's black? What if she's white? The new Lindsay?

Re: Sloane Stephens:the new Serena?

Developmentally she's way behind Radwanska, Wozniacki, Azarenka, et al; let alone Serena for fuck's sake.

Her backhand is a mess, her footwork is mediocre, her court instincts are confused, she's very mentally fragile, etc, etc. She's 20 and still doesn't have a WTA title or even final, still no win over top 10 players, only two wins over top 20, etc.

This girl will not be an elite player.

Fun personality, though.

Sloane is the heir to the throne. Serena is still Queen.

Wozniacki was much more accomplished than Sloane was at her current age so IDK.

Re: Sloane Stephens:the new Serena?

She is still so young,I bet she will be top10 after French Open

Like I once said Sara Errani will be top 10,and more than 80% people said it's impossible

Re: Sloane Stephens:the new Serena?

I don't see are as being #1 soon. She'll need to dethrone Serena, Azarenka and Sharapova to do that.

That's not going to happen if ever, let alone soon.

Re: Sloane Stephens:the new Serena?

Hell no, I love Sloan, I'm SO EXCITED that another sista has stepped it up to represent in the WTA with Venus and Serena because she's the future ....but the only reason Sloan should even be mentioned in the same sentence with Serena or even Venus, is only because she's black. As far as TENNIS, there is no comparison. Sloan has a LONG way to go, her game still needs to be tweaked and improved before she can be called the "new" Serena. There games are nothing a like.....she's learning though..with Serena as a mentor....she will make great strides

Venus and Serena ....Often imitated NEVER duplicated!!!!!!!

Aga Angelika Caro Petko Alize Kornat Simona Vika

Totally agree, when Serena was her age she has already won a slam. Sloane is looking good though, I think she will win a title this year.
