    This match is Exhibit A why WTA can be so frustrating.. and so entertaining for the drama-seekers.

    Agreed, if Stephens wasn't choking away easy points this would be game, set, and match. Stephens is fast enough to track down finishing shots by Serena, and she is hitting spinny enough to keep Serena from easily attacking her.

    These stupid commentators are ass kissing Serena's butt as if she's a Goddess of something. ESPN commentators are just annoying.

    No serve, no point construction, no winners. Sloane should be embarrassed.

    I can't stand all the drama from Serena.....good grief. And Stephens donates a forehand right into the net on an easy ball.

    Sloane should have easily won this set 15 minutes ago. Now she's going to lose the entire match.
