Meet The Future of American Tennis?
Or so Bonnie Ford is telling us about Sloane Stephens over at ESPN. Easy, folks. Don't these pundits remember Melanie Oudin? Making it to the semis of a slam is a fabulous achievement but it's still only one tournament. I wouldn't crown someone the "future" until they win multiple tournaments or win a slam. I hope Sloane has much, much better people around her than Oudin and that they keep her feet planted firmly on the ground. Some people reading this post might be asking Melanie who? Exactly. Thankfully for Sloane this is happening down under as opposed to NYC. Hope she survives the fuss.
