Wasn't she mentored by Serena? I wonder if the USO 2009 incidence had something to do with this. Game and personlity wise, this is not a big surprise that Sloane idolises Kim.

Re: Sloane says her ultimate idol in tennis is Kim Clijsters

Pretty sure I read somewhere about Sloane's mother saying she wasn't happy about her being around Serena.

More people should follow her example and discriminate others based on behavior and not on race.

Helen Lawson and Jonah Leon like this.

"Sometimes we've wondered if Martina actually knew what she was saying. Maybe it was her age or inexperience or something got lost in the translation. But I don't know. She comes out with something astounding and then just stares at you like, 'What did I say?' But then she'll have that glint in her eye."

Re: Sloane says her ultimate idol in tennis is Kim Clijsters

Kim is a great champion and an amazing person. One of the best rolemodels tennis has had, so good for Sloane.

I cheer on scrubs.

Kim has always been a popular choice of role model for girl's of a certain age.

In a news conference, Stephens fielded the usual question about how the Williams sisters must have inspired her as an African-American. She said that race had nothing to do with it, that they inspired her, period, and that she decorated the walls of her bedroom with posters of them.

“That’s Sloane in a nutshell right there,” Roger Smith said. “That’s her outlook on a lot of things. Such a measured response. She appreciates all the questions about the Williams sisters. She and Serena have become friends. But she was just a kid when they started.”

Re: Sloane says her ultimate idol in tennis is Kim Clijsters

Why is this threadworthy? Kim is a great champion, there is nothing with Sloane having her as her rolemodel..
