I don't think Stephens is a pusher, but she certainly played like one. Strangely so, because her timing on the forehand side is superb. She can do much better.

Anyway, congrats!

Re: [WTA SAVED!] AO R4: Stephens d. Jovanovski 61 36 75

Great win by Sloane. Again, doing things the hard way. Would be more appreciative if she stayed aggressive and trusted her game and her talents vs. waiting for some of these girls to go off the rails.

Which was kind of her point. I don't know, some of like people who can actually have a sense of humor about themselves.

Re: [WTA SAVED!] AO R4: Stephens d. Jovanovski 61 36 75

Sloane did well to advance to her first grand slam quarterfinal as for her opponent there should be a hindrance rule against her offensive grunting. I thought Sloane was going to roll through this match after blasting the girl off the court with the first set. In the second set Sloane got defensive she has to realize at this level she's got to play offensive tennis. Good job though on rising into the WTA Top 20!

It's not Bojana, it's the fact that she was trying to reach her first GS QF. But yes, Sloane needs to work on staying aggressive in pressure moments.

She's absolutely not a pusher, though. Those claiming so clearly have not seen much more from her than the end of this match. She actually hits quite hard much of the time in her matches (ex. the Serena match in Brisbane).
