In what was a stellar performance at the 2017 US Open, Sloane Stephens defeated fellow American, Madison Keyes (15 seed), 6-3, 6-0, winning her very first Grand Slam title.

“It hasn’t sunk in yet, but hopefully in a little while once I, like, am able to lay down and relax and think about it, I’ll realize that I really am the US Open champion.” – Sloane Stephens

With this title, Stephens advances up the ranks to World No.17 (previously No. 975 at the start of the Summer). Further, she improves to 5-0 in WTA finals.
