Changing of the Guard

Everyone wondered as the Williams sisters got older as to who would be the next on line to take the reins for US Women’s tennis. The future of women’s American tennis just might have introduced herself to the world over night in Australia.

Sloane Stephens grew up with Serena Williams posters on the wall of her bedroom in Plantation, Florida. She is the daughter of former New England Patriot running back John Stephens and Sybil Smith an All-American swimmer at Boston University.

Sure Serena was injured and injured herself during the match but a win against a top player had to come at some point and this win will provide tremendous confidence.

The girl that grew up idolizing the Williams sisters can say she’s taken the best one down. I’m ready to see her inn the Australian Open semi’s and of course back in the states at the US Open.

Maybe the future is now!
