Stephens meanwhile is ranked 66 and will be looking to make the most of her run and return to the glory days, when he had won the US Open in 2017. From 4-all at the outset, the 28-year-old claimed eight of the remaining 10 games in a 66-minute rout, consisting of excellent serves and stinging forehand play. Sloane played a total of eight forehand winners and acknowledged that it was a key proponent of her win.”The forehand was key today,” Stephens said after the match. “I wanted to come out here and really execute and play my game.”
Stephens will now face the winner of the matchup between three-time Slam champ Angelique Kerber against Anhelina Kalinina. The clash was scheduled to be played on Wednesday, but was postponed for at least another day following bad weather amidst a tornado warning in the region.
