Serena Williams Responds To Criticism From Sloane Stephens
The beef is on between Serena Williams and Sloane Stephens. Serena Williams responded to fellow player Sloane Stephens’ criticisms on Tuesday, after Stephens went after Serena in an interview. After Stephens claimed Serena unfollowed her on Twitter and stopped speaking to her after a contentious match in the Australian Open, Serena Williams responds, saying: “I’m a big Sloane Stephens fan and always have been. I’ve always said that I think she can be the best in the world. I’ll always continue to think that and always be rooting for her.” Stephens seemed to get the message, taking to Twitter to squash it.
Guilty of being naive. Much respect 4 @serenawilliams , a champ & the GOAT. We spoke, we’re good. ONWARD! #lifelessons
