I think some people like Sloane because she's good but I also think it is kind like those people who claim to be fans of Chanda Rubin and not the Williams Sisters.

I think some people are going to support Sloane but hope she doesn't get to the Williams Sisters level.

Rubin, also African American was a solid top 15 occasional top 10 player but her problem was her game wasn't powerful, consistent or explosive as the Williams Sisters.
