Re: Is Sloane Stephens the new star USA have been waiting for?
No she is a potential star tennis has been waiting for. Lot of promise coming through in terms of game and personality for the WTA and to be politically incorrect "from the correct places". If Robson and Stpehens were from the Czech Republic and Belarus the journalists wouldn´t be nearly as excited.
This. We shouldn't be too hasty. Remember Lucic and Dokic 1999? There's often big upsets and today is just another one.
But I can understand why American tennis is excited, Britain would be too if one of our players were in the semis.
Monica Seles Superstar. Her fans never forget.
Players I root for now: Heather, Laura, Lucie, Marion, Serena, Simona, Svetlana, Venus, Vika. And Caroline.
Doubles and Mixed Doubles are fun and underrated.
