Sloane Stephens Defeats Venus Williams


Back in 2013 up and coming tennis phenom Sloane Stephens exposed her former mentor Serena Williams because Serena stopped speaking to Sloan after losing to her at the 2013 Australian Open [click here if you missed that].

I guess Venus will stop speaking to Sloane as well...

Yesterday Sloane Stephens defeated Venus Williams at the U.S. Open 6-1, 0-6, 7-5 to advance to the finals.

Sloane is 24 and Venus is 37.

Congrats to Sloan, the Williams sisters just need to pass the torch. Still Black Girl Magic.

You don't pass the torch in sports, you beat the champ and earn the title. Serena will be back with a vengeance

Venus made 920k for making it to the semi finals. I saw lots of comments about passing the torch and needing to retire, but I don't understand why? Vince Carter is still playing. He hasn't won a title, but he's still playing. If there's money to be made an you love the game, go for it. I'm not a Venus fan. She's passive and detached from reality, but the 900k keeps her in the top 5 earners of all time in women's tennis๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฟ‍♂️ Will she stop talking to Sloane? No.lol. She's not as firery and passionate as Serena. Richard said that 20 years ago when the "big white turkey" intentionally bumped Venus and she did nothing about it. Serena would have done something about it. Not sure how I feel about Sloane yet. It was nice when they kept flashing to her players box. Black coach, black boyfriend, black hitting partner. It's rare you see Black coaches. Especially ones the commentators willfully praise. They'd never praise Richard Williams when he was there. They gave Sloane's coach credit for calming her down and helping her to focus. Next up is Madison Keys. Another Black woman. One who doesn't identify as Black. I'm rooting for Sloane๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฟ

I was a Venus fan before Serena came on the scene.
Venus is finesse while Serena is power. I love them both, especially when they play doubles.
Don't know Sloan but it's about time some new blood showed up on the tennis scene. She hasn't made it yet but she's on her way. Good for her.

I troll it like I see it said...

Yasss!! To these powerful, beautiful Nubian Goddesses on the court winning ❤❤❤

Congrats to both my beautiful black sisters for making it thus far.

As far as passing the torch ... Venus will know when it is time, but until then, she should rake in all the coins she can. Off topic: If last night's game vs. KC wasn't enough for Tom Brady to consider retirement ... I don't know what was.

I felt like Venus took it easy on her & let her have this one. But either way, it's all good
