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..

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
