Hobart R2: Sloane Stephens def. Simona Halep 6-4, 6-0

Dreadful performance by Simona

It was boring match to watch, only exciting part was Sloane's involvement in some controversy during her toilet break next is fellow american Lauren Davis, Lauren leads h2h 1-0

American Renaissance this week. We have three young ones in QF matches. Maybe there is hope after all?

The FDTL to set up match point was great.

Take the title Sloane!

Not the best match, but Stephens had some good points here and there. She became more consistent after a patchy 1st set.

Re: Hobart R2: Sloane Stephens def. Simona Halep 6-4, 6-0

Simona seems to have zero fighting spirit. If she loses a first set, she always gets crushed in the second...

Great performance by Sloane. Dreadful by Simona. Now the test comes. Sloane will be a heavy favorite. I'm anxious to see how she handles this next match.

Re: Hobart R2: Sloane Stephens def. Simona Halep 6-4, 6-0

Since giving Serena fit, Sloane is determined to lead the Young Americans contingent.
With Christina McHale struggling that role is vacant right now, and Sloane if filling the void,

Re: Hobart R2: Sloane Stephens def. Simona Halep 6-4, 6-0

Well done to Sloane, but these kind of scorelines are so common with Simona. She loses the first set, which is normally very close, and then gets whitewashed in the second! She needs to improve on that urgently.

Couldn't agree more and still have no answer for such behaviour.
Sharing coaches with Hanescu isn't reason enough for me.

Congrats, Sloane.

I would have stayed awake for this, but I didn't see it on the OOP.

Oh well. Keep going, Sloane.
