Champions Corner: Sloane Stephens' New York fairytale

The newly-minted US Open champion joins the WTA Insider Podcast to reflect on her stunning fortnight and how she expects to deal with the pressure and expectations ahead.


NEW YORK, NY, USA - 2017 US Open Champion Sloane Stephens joins the WTA Insider Podcast after a remarkable, incredible, whirlwind fortnight in New York, which saw her win her first major title just five tournaments into her injury comeback. Stephens began the summer hardcourt season ranked outside the Top 900. Off the back of back-to-back semifinals at the Rogers Cup and Western & Southern Open and her title run in New York, the 24-year-old American will rocket up to No.17 when the new rankings come out on Monday.

That's the stuff of a Disney movie.

Listen to an exhausted but exhilarated Stephens talk about what she expected at the start of the tournament, how she plans to deal with the pressure and expectations that are sure to come, and why she just might have to leave her good friend Madison Keys alone at the bar on Saturday night.
