I haven't seen that much of Sloane Stephens in match play. I saw her hitting with Murphy Jensen at the US Open 2012 and I did like her strokes but that was just casual hitting. Jensen was in ball return mode and Sloane couldn't do much to hurt him even when she belted the ball. She seems like a great kid.
What do all of you think of her potential?
