Re: Sloane Stephens

Who's her coach?

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.

Re: Sloane Stephens

Hey, you can't argue with that scoreline against one of the best players in history who is at the top of the game right now. Fantastic opening week for Sloane.

Serena Williams ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Venus Williams ~ Jelena Dokic ~ Melanie Oudin ~ Christina McHale

Vandeweghe ~ Mattek-Sands ~ King ~ Hampton ~ Riske ~ Glatch ~ Brengle ~ Rogers ~ Stephens ~ Boserup ~ Davis ~ Keys ~ Lepchenko ~ Falconi ~ Chirico ~ Crawford ~ Gibbs ~ Pegula ~ Min ~ Townsend ~ Duval ~ Vickery ~ Bellis ~ Ahn

Re: Sloane Stephens

Sloane really showed she belongs and I was really proud of her effort last night. I really do hope she brings that kind of game and intensity in every match she plays this year.

Proud Blackjack!

Re: Sloane Stephens

But could use some more depth on her forehand.

Re: Sloane Stephens

Well done by Sloane. She did a great job handling Laura's pace and taking advantage of Laura's lack of speed and athleticism. She did what she was supposed to do today and hopefully she will have many more straight forward and routine matches this year. So proud to see her not choke this one away the way she could have last year. Keep going Sloane and get that ranking up girl.

Proud Blackjack!
