Sloane Stephens’ Winning US Open Gear
Today, a star was born. Sloane Stephens defeated her BFF Madison Keys 6-3 6-0 to win the Women’s Singles title at the US Open. Stephens had sat out 11 months with a foot injury before returning this summer. Her ranking at one point was down (or up, depending on how you look at it) to #957 in the world. She played an elegant, precision final and never let Keys get a foot in the door, and you can’t help but feel there is a changing of the guard coming up with Keys and Stephens moving to the forefront, although Serena Williams will probably have something to say about that in January. Meanwhile, Stephens new ranking on Monday the 11th? Seventeen.
To be fair, the line between the two has blurred in recent years- you don’t see much in the way of traditional tennis attire unless your name is Djokovic or Federer. Sloane is the women’s flagship player for Under Armour, and this is the Under Armour Women’s Summer Tech Twist Tank. (Her matching UA shoes, like Andy Murray’s, also aren’t available to the public.)
