Re: Sloane Stephens
I completely understand this is a learning process, she is only 19, and all that.......but, I was very disappointed in this match with Ana. Its a known fact, Ana's forehand is her far superior stroke, and to try to avoid it at all cost. It seems as the match wore on, Sloane was hitting primarily to her forehand, and I don't get it! When someone starts blasting winner after winner on the same stroke, dont you try to change it up a bit?? I dont know, just not a good match from Sloane.
I read she has a slight ab strain, so I hope she recovers and can play some good matches this fall.
