Re: Do you like Sloane's personality?

She's cocky..once upon a time both Serena and Vee were hated upon for this ( and they at least were beating top 10 players at time), but Sloane is aight.

Always bet on black!

Re: Do you like Sloane's personality?

A love-hate attitude towards Sloane from me.
She's young, speaks her mind and has a vivid personality.
That pretty much sums up what I feel about her, though she meets all requirements to join my group of fave she can easily end up on my hate list after AO semis, so we'll see

Re: Do you like Sloane's personality?

I agree with you bandabou,mOST of these people don't like Sloane.but they're so happy THE GREATEST TENNIS PLAYER OF THIS TIME lost.Serena will come back and win everything.I truly believe if Maria could win the french so can Serena! Then WIMBLEDON ETC ETC just leave the doubles alone for a minute.My Queen fought like hell injury and all.

as a fan of maria, i wonder about this from time to time. has there ever been a really good thread sorting out all the issues and ramifications of playing them, or not playing them?

Re: Do you like Sloane's personality?

I do.
She's grounded, has a great support system - even Laura's mum texted Sloane's mum to congratulate her daughter on getting to the QF over Laura.
Plus she's really focused

Re: Do you like Sloane's personality?

Let's say she isn't as eloquent as Roger but everyone is different.
"Wasn't had as I thought" was borderline arrogant.

Hopefully her mom will keep her grounded as she seems to be very into the star system and everything.
She needs to know that all that popularity is due to her nationality.

A Slovenian player wouldn't get 10% of the attention she is now getting from the international press.

Re: Do you like Sloane's personality?

What the hell are you guys talking talking about...arrogant, cocky??? are we talking about the same player?

She's been nothing but mature and calm. After she won she didn't do any stupid fake celebration like Federer, in fact she turned the other way as to not be in Serena's face. Then when big bird interview her after the match she was totally humble, calm, and acted like it was just another match. I like her man, compared to Venus and Serena which I despised them back in the late 90s when they came up with their beads. Now that was arrogant and cocky.

Hell yeah, welcome very much to S Stephens to the the WTA. She's great for the game and just what we need right now to challenge the big girls .

Winners forget they're in a race, they just love to run. You try too hard.

Re: Do you like Sloane's personality?

What's not to like really?

People saying she's arrogant same thing some said about Monica and the 2 Martinas! Yet she has said nothing to warrant the arrogant accusations - I've just watched the match today and her on court interview was sweet. I loved Martina H but she really COULD be bitchy and arrogant! Sloane isn't close!

She seems a normal teen to me, and I've met a lot worse - teens who haven't achieved anything but still think they're the bees knees!

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.

Re: Do you like Sloane's personality?

Hard to judge a 19 year old girl's personality with a TV interview. Just my opinion.

Re: Do you like Sloane's personality?

I love her, she has a very likeable personality and she isn't a robot by saying all nice things/isn't extremely rude either when proving she isn't a robot.

I think her personality is in a stark contrast to someone like Azarenka. Azarenka's personality in the media seems so forced and contrived, she even hired a PR to help her out. Sloane's personality is real and authentic, I love that about her.

She even praises others without sucking on the clit. Like for Serena, she thinks of her as a mentor but she's not groveling at her feet after every match or stupid shit like that, she keeps her composure well and she makes the occasional mishaps, like in Brisbane calling Serena's grunts "disrespectful". Even she sometimes gets a bit upset and angry and it proved it, I just love her

Re: Do you like Sloane's personality?

I hope she stays as she behaves now. I was with Serena's character in '99 but that changed tremendeously...

She so much reminds me of Chanda. Another decent person. If Sloane is going to win the BIG ONES and stays as she is I'll take her in my sig and support her even against my other favs...
