And these pressers in the past...

US Open

Q. Becoming friends with Serena, does that mean she tells you things about how to play the game and win points and maybe beat her?
SLOANE STEPHENS: I don't think she's going to tell me how to beat her, no (laughter).
We're really good friends. We really enjoy each other. We just have a really good relationship. Whenever I see each other, we're laughing and we're giggling. I feel like I knew her in my past life or something, I don't know. It's so strange.
No, she's definitely not going to tell me how to beat her. We have a good relationship and I'm really happy that we've come this far.

Q. Serena has talked a lot about how great of a player you are. What have you gotten from her relationship?
SLOANE STEPHENS: She's just a good friend. I love her to death. We were in the training room together. She's a really good person. I enjoy her positivity, so it's good.

Brisbane

Q. Serena came in yesterday I think and said she was a fan of your game. How does that make you feel?
SLOANE STEPHENS: She's so sweet. (Smiling.) No, I love her. Obviously she's been a really great influence in my tennis year career. I'm excited to play her and get on the court with her tomorrow. I think it'll be fun. I mean, I'm glad they likes any tennis game.

Q. Does it give you a lot confidence having somebody with Serena's profile noticing your game?
SLOANE STEPHENS: No, not really. I think it's just becausewe're good ‑‑ I mean, we're good friends. So, I mean, if she had never seen me play then I would be kind of concerned. But I think it's okay.
Obviously I always was like, Oh, my God. I love her to death. She's amazing, whatever. Now she's like an actual person and I'm like, Oh, hi. How is it going? She's not like a hero anymore. She's just a friend.
Once this kind of died off it was kind of like okay, well. It's was been fun.

Australian Open 4R

Q. What did you learn in your matches with her recently?
SLOANE STEPHENS: Obviously every match is a learning experience. But, I mean, you've just got to go and treat it like another match. It wasn't like, Oh, my God, I played Serena, I'm going to be so great at all these other things because she just taught me so much.
It was just another match, regular match. Little things that you just take and move on.

Australian Open QF

Q. Do you remember the first time you watched the game of Serena on TV? When you were a little girl, did you ever try to learn from her on TV and imitate her?
SLOANE STEPHENS: Uhm, no, not really. I mean, I always love watching her play obviously, but never tried to like copycat or anything like that.

After the ESPN Magazine interview in March....

Miami

Q. Probably tired of answering these questions, but you're supposed to play Venus today, and when you were in Australia and you played Serena there has been a lot of comparisons. Is that sort of overblown how much you have looked up to them, or is that accurate?
SLOANE STEPHENS: I mean, I definitely ‑‑ obviously Venus and Serena are great inspirations to kids, and especially to American girls in the sport. Definitely it was a little bit blown out of proportion, but obviously looked up to them because they are amazing athletes and great tennis players.
But I think ‑‑ it's kind of died off a little bit now, but it's definitely they have always been great inspirations, not only to me but to everyone.

Fed Cup

Q. Sloane, talk about what you learned from Venus and Serena and being around them.
CAPTAIN FERNANDEZ: Only the good stuff, okay?
SLOANE STEPHENS: (Laughter.) A lot of things. Obviously they're two of the greatest players to ever play tennis. We just have fun.
We just‑‑ I mean, I don't know. I love being around them. They're really good people. Just little things I can't tell you because then I would be letting out all the secrets.
So I'll just keep it to myself for now.


She just loves to make everybody believes that she's very close with the sisters :tape:
well you know what, love and hate are the two sides of one coin

Most likely and something that would make a outspoken and unexperienced person like Sloane to make comments of this sort trying to allienate herself from the person who once was her idol, I can fully undersand her stance if that are her motives. She probably also grew tired of comparisons and there's also the hype, they have clearly take a toll on Sloane's career.

Go Sloane, choose your own path be your on idol. :hug:
But why does the burden have to be placed on Serena :lol: ? Could it have been that Serena was annoyed or upset by Sloane's "disrespectful" comment? Could it be Sloane is just annoying on Twitter (which she is) and Serena didn't want to see her tweets on her feed?

Matt Cronin supporting my idea, which i posted before in this thread


Matt Cronin Matt Cronin ‏@TennisReporters

@kamitell @carole_bouchard Serena bit childish unfollowing after loss but understandable, Sloane said Bris 'disrespect' overblown

Jazmine_Bre Jazmine_Bre ‏@Dr_Brown92

@TennisReporters How is Serena childish? Who gives a crap about who Serena follows/unfollows on twitter. Like really ? This is tennis!

Matt Cronin Matt Cronin ‏@TennisReporters

@Dr_Brown92 Sloane does & u dont think its childish 2 unfollow someone who u like after u lost 2 them? My guess is Serena regretted that 1

Jazmine_Bre Jazmine_Bre ‏@Dr_Brown92

@TennisReporters Look at how Sloane acted after she beat Serena. She acted real cocky. Do you see Vika saying it was EASY to beat Serena? NO


Matt Cronin Matt Cronin ‏@TennisReporters

@Dr_Brown92 Diff there is that unlike Vika Sloane an American & important to Serena to be queen of US tennis at all times


I'm quite sure Sloane in Ellen Degeneres show and giving interviews here and there is extremely annoying for current "Queen" of American tennis

Serena's camp has read Sloane's comments. Now whether Serena will respond soon is up in the air.

I'm pretty sure Serena follows other people who she's lost to...
Serena also stopped following Kim after losing to her. IIRC.

“She’s not said one word to me, not spoken to me, not said hi, not looked my way, not been in the same room with me since I played her in Australia,” Stephens says emphatically. “And that should tell everyone something, how she went from saying all these nice things about me to unfollowing me on Twitter.

wow how can someone who achieved as much as Serena be so small, bitter and unhappy, it's beyond me, glad I'm not a big fan of either of them.
"Not said one word", "not spoken to" and "not looked my way" are all the same things and the reason that she has not said one word to Sloane could spring from the 4th fact of Sloane's ramblings, being that they have "not been in the same room". It's not that easy for Serena to speak to Sloane if they haven't been in the same room. I don't know how you come to these conclusions about Serena being small, bitter and unhappy. Taking Sloane's words for truth? She changes opinion more often than I change underwear.

People are equating unfollowing to unfriending, which is TOTALLY different. Unfollowing is equivalent to unsubscribing to someone's news feed, period. Sloane tweets so much it was probably annoying in a flooding way.

Sloane is such a brat. :haha:

Momo never signed an autograph or even posed for a picture for me and I didn't lose sleep over it (she's just as bad as Frenchie - a myskina poster who stopped liking Golovin because she wouldn't pose for a pic or an autograph; I forget which... :lol: ). :tape::eek:

What I see there is Sloane kinda tongue-in-cheek pandering to the media hoping for her to say 'Oh I lurveee ReeRee, she was my Ayidoll forever and ever' and following it up with a sly 'shes not a hero anymore. This has died off by now.'

Sloane herself says she was never a fan of Serena.........
Sloane has said a lot of things as you can see from some of her previous statements. Sloane needs to shut the hell up. These same fickle fans and sportswriters encouraging her will be dogging her in a hot minute leaving her all by her lonesome.

Williams fans continue to be pressed.

This is Sloane's side of the story. Let her be and let the rest pan out. I don't think she's being an attention whore. ESPN broached the question and she answered it emphatically.

Ding ding ding, we have a diagnosis!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Histrionic_personality_disorder

I'm :hysteric: at the mnemonic device

A mnemonic that can be used to remember the characteristics of histrionic personality disorder is "PRAISE ME"

Provocative (or seductive) behavior
Relationships are considered more intimate than they actually are
Attention-seeking
Influenced easily
Speech (style) wants to impress; lacks detail
Emotional lability; shallowness
Make-up; physical appearance is used to draw attention to self
Exaggerated emotions; theatrical
I don't think Serena uses make-up to draw attention to herself :unsure:

Serena doesn't have histrionic personality disorder. He is referring to Sloane. Serena probably has narcissistic personality disorder.
