Sloan Stephens beat Serena Williams! I'm thrilled!

Have always hated Serena (and not because she looks juiced/masculine) but because she's always been a very sore loser, never gives credit to her opponents, etc. (She's gotten better over the years but it's probably her PR team's doing, not her own; she's as narcissistic as they come.) Sloan seems like a nice kid without a chip on her shoulder and has the makings of a great player. Go Sloan!

Serena's got nothing on Bill Belichick.

Both Williams sisters have always been that way. It's not that their opponent played a superior game but that they just didn't do their best.

Neither has had any sportsmanship in any of the durations of their careers.

Congrats Sloane!!!

I love the sisters... I think they are one of the most amazing stories in sports.... but I am really happy for young Sloane!!

Good for Sloan- but Serena was definitely hurt. Sloan is a terrific player, but at best top ten. She does not have the talent of any of the great players in the making at the same age. You'll see.

Sloane Stephens is a classic DataLounge name.

charlie you DO know a lot about tennis.

Wasn't Serena pissed off when she lost?

R2, you couldn't be more wrong. Serena? Yes. She's always been a total brat. Often the best (Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Tom Brady, Jimmy Connors, to name a few men) are assholes. But Venus is the epitome of class. I have always wished she had the talent her sister was born with. But I think it's that petulance that has lifted Serena into the GOAT conversation.

Jennifer Capriati is taking a lot of heat for tweeting in Sloane's favor last night.

Something like "if I never see a Williams sister again it will be too soon."

No doubt from the same people who LOVED it when Serena threatened to kill a line judge.

But, yes, Venus is a class act. Serena has roid/testosterone rage.

Totally agree, charlie. In fact, Serena has NEVER EVER lost a match when she's been fully fit.

Sometimes Serena loses a match when she's healthy, but then it's because she's not trying because it's not a big enough event.

I can't stand Serena Williams. She has no manners; she is an absolute cunt. And how can anybody NOT think she's on steroids? LOOK at her. I think her outbursts might be partially due to 'roid rage.

r7: OP here. I also follow tennis closely (get the Tennis Channel for the last 5 years). Coco Vandeweghe is top 50 at best. Not sure what her ranking is now. Have not been impressed with her play when I've seen her.

thanks, that's what i thought.

Thankfully, the world seldom works according to the OP's demand that her idea of "nice people" beat "not nice people" and maintain the order of her universe.

Has she associated her many losses with this principle yet?

Does Capriati really think this is the end of Serena? She's up for some disappointment. Venus, on the other hand, is done and will probably never win another major.

It's amazing how different Venus and Serena are. Venus is shy, demure, and always gracious. Serena, on the other hand, is aggressive and always seems to be looking for a bar fight. And she's not done by a long shot, she's headed towards Graf-Navratilova territory when talking of the all-time greats.

Sloan? Talk about right out of the Preppy Handbook.
