Sloane Stephens Quest for #1: 2019 Cheering Thread
Sloane enters the year ranked #6!
First tournament up is Brisbane (12/31 - 1/6). Sloane has no points to defend the entire Australian swing (except for a measly 10 points just from playing the 1st round in Melbourne) so a good showing in tournaments could greatly increase her ranking.

It's a tough first round if Konta is firing. She will not get much rhythm with Konta being so hit and miss. At least she arrived in Australia with some time to spare so looks like she could be taking this seriously.
It's a doable draw if she can negotiate the first couple of rounds.

OMG, I cant wait for her season to start! She seriously has a legitimate shot at #1, but has to play well. With a really good result in Brisbane, she could possibly snatch a Top 4 seed for the AO, which would assist in a deeper run
