Some of you people are insane.





Superstars at the moment are only Serena and Maria. Venus is still a superstar, but kind of fading. Even Vika is not there yet. Is Caro a superstar? LMAO. Na is a superstar in China, not really global wide. Can you see Sloane reach the level of Serena's tennis wise and Maria's marketing power ( and tennis)?





If she is not that full of herself, she could say:


Journalist : "Are you going to be a superstar?"


Sloane : " If you say so, I hope I will be a star one day. I 'll work on it. "

" Not sure about " superstar", but I can definitely play tennis."

" Aren't there many stars in the sky? I'll go for a big one."


Being humble will get you far. Not being the next Alexandra Stevenson.

Re: Sloane Stephens: "I am going to be the next superstar"

People taking stuff she says out of context again. She responded to a question, didn't say that herself. How should she respond anyway? "No, I think I'm going to be a journeywoman and win a few MMs hopefully". <<< no

She comes across as really composed, well-measured in interviews...pretty bubbly too, and she says a lot of things tongue-in-cheek so they get misinterpreted. I'm not even a fan but she's refreshing in interviews, and after the Vika match she never blamed the MTO for her loss, complained or anything, said nothing negative towards Azarenka. People just love to hate

Very thoughtful examples. The last one maybe a tad too poetic. Anyway, saying it like she says does not necessarily mean being full of oneself. It could just be going with the flow, saying what people want to hear... She strikes me as not being completely serious with what she says...

Actually, Sloane was not bad in her interviews at all. She is still young and composed enough in her interviews. So far it's okay for her age, media trained or not. I admit I was a bit annoyed with the way she played Serena tough, then fold like a cheap tent vs Vika.





There were players who played light out against the the Williamses ( nowadays just mainly against Serena that counts), then played like wimps against other top players. Chanda Rubin was one of them. And Stosur, Angela Haynes. It's good to play tough against top players, but better bring your best against everyone of them, not just against the Williams just because they want a 5 minute fame.

Robson got a fair bit of attention when getting to teh 4th round of the US open, taking down 2 top players on route, and I don't reember her acting this arrogant.
Exactly.
No modesty in Sloane at all

Re: Sloane Stephens: "I am going to be the next superstar!"

Do people not realise that she said this at last year's US Open and not at this year's Australian Open? I mean seriously? Trying a bit too hard to hate on the girl.

Someone said she was already a superstar, it's starting to look that way.

There shouldn't be quotes in the title because Sloane didn't actually say those words.

Re: Sloane Stephens: "I am going to be the next superstar"

Have you never said this one day ? Did it actually happened ?
i'm not saying that she wont be a superstar but you have to say this to encourage yourself, at least.
