I hope you did not miss this good match at the US Open yesterday. Sloane Stephens predicted that this match-up between herself and Serena Williams would be epic. This match was far from it. Stephens played a good game. But good game is usually not good enough to beat a healthy Serena Williams. Stephens stayed right with Serena for eight intensifying games. But it was Williams who outdistanced the 15th -seeded Stephens and sent her packing. I’ll have to give Sloane Stephens credit for putting up a good fight. Her time is coming.
Serena showed why she is in fact the #1 ranked player. She has vowed not to let down as she steps into quarterfinals. My prediction is that she will win the US OPEN… again.
