QF vs Serena

Not bad. Should make R3 at least, with a solid chance at a QF if she stays in good form. All of those R3/R4 opponents have been sucking recently.

She mentioned something about a boyfriend in her oncourt interview after the match today also. I'll have to relisten to it, but I think she was talking about visiting a romantic park in Hobart the other day and said that she'll "have to bring my boyfriend here with me next time."
Huh, that's news to me. At the U.S. Open of 2012 she said that she shared a coach with Sam Querry and Jack was dating some chick. My how fast things change. Yesterday, she struggled with Lauren Davis (a scrub). Today, she is getting her ass handed to her by an unseeded Vesnina. Unimpressive.

Re: Sloane Stephens

2-6 2-6. Complete and utter tragedy. I feel like her form is getting worse. Hopefully she can do better in Melbourne.

Re: Sloane Stephens

That was not a pretty loss, but at least it's over and done with now. Sloane has never played this much professional tennis back to back weeks against this level of competition, she was bound to hit the wall. Lets hope she gets used to this because she is in the big leagues and she is a top 30 player now so she will be expected to go this deep on a consistent basis from here on out. Hope she takes the next couple of days to rest up and get ready for her first Slam as a seed and all the attention she is going to get.

It was still a good week and she has started off this season beautifully. I'm very proud of her progress and I'm really looking forward to this season.

Proud Blackjack!

Are you serious? There was a 40 page thread on Venus' boyfriend, a 25+ page thread on Serena's boyfriend and there is currently a 21 page thread on Sharapova's possible boyfriend. Every player forum has these types of discussions. Plus I only brought it up because Sloane herself talked about 'bringing her boyfriend with her next year' to Hobart to visit this romantic park they have there.

Yeah, i really liker her draw right up till the 3rd rd...maybe even 4th . I can see Sloane doing very well this week at Melbourne. She has had the perfect warm up prep... GL!
