TENNIS : UNSEEDED SLOANE STEPHENS WINS US OPEN FOR FIRST GRAND SLAM TITLE ; IS NEW ERA IN WOMEN'S TENNIS BORN?




TENNIS : UNSEEDED SLOANE STEPHENS WINS US OPEN FOR FIRST CAREER GRAND SLAM TITLE ; IS NEW ERA IN WOMEN'S TENNIS BORN?
It's a magical moment, unfolded in New York.

Sloane Stephens - - in a wheelchair some 8 months ago following a surgery - - has portrayed an incredible comeback story of triumph and tragedy, and won the US Open!

Just over a month ago, she was ranked World No. 957 - - seemingly a million miles away from winning a Grand Slam.

But suddenly, Sloane Stephens is the new US Open Champion!

Not only that, Sloane Stephens has to defeat her own best friend, Madison Keys, in the Finals to bring home the Championship Trophy - - and a very handsome check of USD $3.7 Million Dollars!

The Championship match itself was not epic (a lopsided 6-3; 6-0), but the human drama and emotion in it, is definitely one for the books.

The capacity crowd in New York's towering Arthur Ashe Stadium couldn't agree more.

With new faces now slowly emerging at Grand Slam podiums, is the new era in women's tennis already born?





A #USOpen title didn't look likely for Sloane Stephens when she first stepped out of a boot five months ago, but she walked and then ran all the way to her first Grand Slam ! http://ms.spr.ly/6182rvcuj

Q: Does this make you want to win another Grand Slam?

Sloane Stephens: Of course! Girl, did you see the check that lady handed me?! 

"I should retire now. I told Madison I'd never be able to top this." 

We have a feeling this won't be the last time...

In front of a home crowd looking to celebrate the pinnacle of domestic women’s #tennis, last night’s @usopen semifinals featured an all-American quartet that was reduced to a duo, after @sloanestephens and @madisonkeys advanced to an improbable final. It began with the unseeded @sloanestephens, who was ranked 934th on the women’s tour less than 2 months ago, barging her way in with an impressive demonstration of nerve and desire and ousting the 2-time champion @venuswilliams in the first semifinal. Then No. 15-seeded @madisonkeys played near-flawless tennis to overpower No. 20 @cocovandey, setting up the first #USOpen final between 2 American women since @serenawilliams beat Venus in 2002. Back in January, when @madisonkeys was recovering from the first of 2 wrist surgeries and #Stephens was immobilized on her couch after surgery to repair a fracture in her left foot, the 2 players lamented their plights as they texted back and forth. “I was actually just laughing and thinking, ‘Who would have thought in Australia that Sloane and I would be the finalists at the U.S. Open?’” Keys said. #regram from @nytchangster, who took this photo of #SloaneStephens after her victory last night.
