Didn’t play tennis at all last year recovering from surgery, began this year ranked 957 in the world, number 83 coming into the US Open, beat Venus Williams in the semi-finals, and today US Open 2017 champion. Congrats Sloane Stephens!She had risen from 975 in the world six weeks ago, at the start of her hardcourt campaign, to 17 in the world this Monday morning, the owner of her first slam title.
She had risen from 975 in the world six weeks ago, at the start of her campaign, to 17 in the world this Monday morning, after winning her first slam title.
That is an amazing, unprecedented journey – and she admitted she has not given any thought to what happens next.
She had a Good time to win this US open which this year is paying out a record $50 million in Prize Money.
The four major tournaments Australian open, French open, Wimbledon and US open paid same for the Men and Women.
How would you react if someone handed a check for you of $3.7 million with your name on it? Probably in the same way Sloane Stephens did on Saturday after the 24 years old own her first major title ever.
She is from an athlete family. Her mother Sybil, was an all American swimmer in college. Where her father John was the no.1 pick in the 1988 NFL Draft.
A Great inspiration to all !!!
