Congrats to a 19 year old Sloan Stephens who just beat Serena in 3 sets QF at the Australian Open. I guess they both learned from the last meeting and there was no drama between the two this time. Serena had a brief back spasm twisting at the net. It affected her serves a few games in the second set.
The US teenagers are quite promising on the women side. Seventeen year old Madison Keys also reached 3rd round but she lost to Angelique Kerber. She showed quite promising form... big serves and ground strokes. Her movement and mental is not at Sloan's level yet.
Sloan will break into top 20's and Keys in the top 100's.
