Sloane Stephens Winning Over American Tennis Fans With Charm, Humility (Photos)

sloane stephensWhen Sloane Stephens burst onto the American tennis scene, upsetting Serena Williams in the Australian Open back in January, she stunned the nation and won it over.

The 20-year-old has seen the red carpet, photo shoots and celebrities and still maintains the humility of a childhood neighbor. Stephens’ No. 16 world ranking doesn’t hurt, either.

Despite falling short of a Wimbledon semifinal appearance with a loss to Marion Bartoli, the hope for and praise of Stephens hasn’t stopped. She’s expected to be the future of American tennis as the sport looks for a new heroine, and she’s lived up to the task so far.
