    19-year-old Sloane Stephens announced her arrival to a global audience by rallying to defeat her 31-year-old American elder, Serena Williams, on Wednesday, 3-6, 7-5, 6-4.
    One of her icons growing up, Williams’ photo is on Stephens’ wall at home.
    “This is so crazy. Oh my goodness,” a tearful Stephens said “I think I’ll put a poster of myself (up) now.”

    We got a whole community full of Sloanes and Serenas.. just not enough Richard Williams-es and Joe Jacksons-es and Mathew Knowles-es to guide their daughters to success..

    She lost to the top seed, Azarenka.

    Too bad she lost. It would have been nice to see her matched up against Li Na from China who beat Sharapova.

    she had azarenka so rattled that she had to go back to the locker room to regroup....
    looks like she has a good chance to be the bizness....

    one love

    It is a shame that you can only judge the girl from her looks, just say she sucks because you don't like her. Don't be ignorant, like the folk you hold accountable for your past and future.

    ok, she sucks because you don't like her.

    i'm not really talking about her looks. she has a perfectly fine body.

    i just don't like her.

    i don't like the way she plays. i don't like the way she sounds. i don't like the way she walks or talks.
    she may well be ranked no 1 but to me she is just another ugly white girl.

    sorry.

    BTW : the folk i hold accountable for my past and my future are my ancestors.
