Re: Welcome to the Top 20 Sloane Stephens!
Congrats Sloane, but getting there is only part of it. Still need to scalp a big player or win a title to be considered a threat.
Yes. Her game is not yet at the level of your standard top 20 player, eg. Vinci, Cibulkova or Ivanovic. So I think she's going to hit a wall rankings-wise and hover around #15-#25 for quite some time. Though she's still young and still improving, so 2 or 3 years from now she might take that next big step into top 10. Who knows.
