Re: Sloane Stephens

Sloane went down to Aga 4/6 6/2 6/0. She looked really disappointed with herself at the end of the match Hopefully after a week off she'll be ready to go next week at The Cup

Btw, her FH was a thing of beauty in the 1st set

Re: Sloane Stephens

Sloane Still a good match. Too bad the 3rd set wasn't close...

I assume Charleston is next...

Re: Sloane Stephens

The petulant teen act was out in force today...sarcastic clapping when she lost a game, dropping the racquet, eye rolls and pouting to her camp.
Sloane can really be her own worst enemy on the court. I hope her on-court maturity improves as she continues to settle into her role as a top 20 player coz there is no need for all that negative body language.
Anyway, clay season

Re: Sloane Stephens

Unfortunately for Sloane, there was no adapting to the game. Once Aga quit hitting to her forehand, Sloane was done. She has to start adjusting her game to her opponent and what they are doing to counteract her. I know she is still only 20, but she seriously was acting really immature out there when she started losing the plot. She needs to re-focus, keep it together and fight...she has to find that fight.

GL on the clay though, I really hope for some good results for her.

Re: Sloane Stephens

Sloane is the 4th seed at Charleston this week and will face either Mattek-Sands or Rodionova in the 2nd round

Good luck

Serena (23) & Venus (7)

Re: Sloane Stephens

lost 6-2 6-0 Awful from her she was so sluggish & didn't seem like she wanted too play or try & was spraying ball out left too right

Re: Sloane Stephens

Well nothing else to say except that was disgustingly pathetic. Her attitude was awful. Most annoying of all though was her coach completely feeding her negative attitude by basically saying there is always Madrid
Yeah that is really a way to motivate a player who is mentally checked out of a match....get them thinking about their next tournament She was still only one break down at this point too in the second set.
I think she needs a tougher team around her...I think Sloane only responds to tough love.

Re: Sloane Stephens

I couldn't believe that quote she gave in Miami that it didn't really matter if she lost in the opening round of her next four tournaments as she'd still be top 30
That says it all about where her attitude is at the moment. Where is she going to find the motivation to succeed if she is thinking like that?!
Have to wonder if her team is promoting this nonsense to her too...it certainly seemed like that today with Nainkin's "Madrid" comment

Re: Sloane Stephens

‏@SI_BTBaseline Sloane Stephens in press, eyes a little watery. "I really love clay so to get out & not be able to play so well is disappointing.
Have seen Stephens in press after losses and she can be casual and glib. Not today. This one stung
