MEET SLOANE STEPHENS: The YBF Teen SLAYING The Aussie Open....And Who Beat Idol Serena Williams!

Meet the YBF chick who is causing a media frenzy during the Australian Open.  Sloane Stephens beat her idol Serena Williams yesterday to advance to the semifinals.  And she's only 19.  Meet the newest YBF tennis star inside....

Sloane Stephens is already a media darling.  She's already won the Junior Girls’ doubles titles at the French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open all by the age of 17.  And it's no wonder she's a mega athlete seeing that her mother was a college swimmer and her late father, John Stephens, was a runningback in the NFL.

Sloane said at her press conference before shockingly winning the knock out match against Serena yesterday:

"[The next match] just happens to be Serena. She's obviously one of the greatest players to ever play the game.  Without all that, it's still a tennis match … The court's the same size. You're still playing a regular person across the net. You've just got to go out and play.”

She's already been featured in Teen VOGUE and admitted then she had posters of the Williams sisters on her wall.  And as the only American out of the four finalists, she now says maybe she should hang one of herself. 

 

Check out her on court interview after her win below.

Meanwhile, Serena was uber pissed after the match, as we all know how passionate she is about her game, and smashed her racquet.  And what Serena said when she first met Sloane:

“I saw her in the locker room. She was another black girl.  I was like, ‘Hey!’ That’s when I first noticed her. ‘What up, girl?”’

Sloan Stephens is a good

Sloan Stephens is a good player, but make no bones about it, she would not have beaten Serena Williams if Serena's back hadn't went out. She knows it, she's not a dummy. Anybody that thinks she would have don't watch tennis.

Serena's injury does not in

Serena's injury does not in any way discredit Sloane Stephen's accomplishments, so please have a seat under a tree with all that shade. She is only nineteen years of age and is going up against one of the best - if not 'the' best- female tennis player of all time. Some of you must have missed the portion of the article that cites her other achievements. "...Junior Girls' doubles titles at the French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open all by the age of 17." What were some of your achievements at that age? Shaking your ass for a dollar and deep-throating some old, grown ass man's penis DOES NOT COUNT.

to all of you hating on this

to all of you hating on this young woman. 1. injuries are a part of the game. 2. Serena is no longer 19 years old, so you likely would.n't be satisfied anyway because then you would say Serena is "older". 3. While yall hating on this young woman, what yall fail to realize is a win like this hopefully means that when Serena and Venus retire from the sport that doesn't mean BLACK women do too! Hopefully this young Black woman and maybe even more will have the skill to be world class tennis champions and cash those checks.

Good to see another African

Good to see another African American women playing at the semifinals. She looks older then 19, and i would also like to see her play against a "healthy" Serena. #flips.hair.that.is.all

To be only 19yrs she looks

To be only 19yrs she looks the same age as Serena and Serena is in her 30's. I know that sun must be damaging to their skin,her dad was an NFL player died in 2009, no surprise he battled drug addiction!

Why do so many black women

Why do so many black women have a full head of Indian Remy hair. What happen to the days of wearing a few tracks to compliment your own hair. This mess has gotten so out of hand

100% Cosign. Why are people so quick to want to see someone go away when they are still the best and still on top? This girl won only because she was hurt. THE END.

Why YBF don't inform the readers that Serena was injured. She could not even serve properly.

LOVES it! If Serena had to

LOVES it! If Serena had to lose at least she lost to another YBF chick. The Williams Sisters have paved the way for a new generation of black tennis superstars and I am EXCITED about it!!! I'm not hating, but there's more to us than track and football!

Good for her. If Bey wasn't

Good for her. If Bey wasn't in hot water right now, i'm sure she would've released an open letter, stating how proud she is of her, as if her praises and congrats means the world.

This news/post had nothing to do with Bey so "I'm sorry" that Ms. Thing can't live life without Bey on the brain and stars in your eyes. Thirst is not cute.

Congrats, to Sloan but she's

Congrats, to Sloan but she's no Serena and I'm not ready to pass the torch just yet. Sloan won only because Serena was injured. I am still glad to see Sloan Stephens & Madison Keys be the new faces of Tennis, sister's who still represent us well in the Tennis world. Sloan don't celebrate yet, you still have to come thru Vika! Awesome job though.

As an avid tennis fan &

As an avid tennis fan & casual life-long player who has supported Serena & attended her matches (in Miami & New York)...I'm tired of her smashing a racket into pieces and stomping around like KING KONG when things aren't going well. Anywho, congrats to this young lady who won....b/c we need another American to finally step up. Serena has CARRIED U.S.A. Tennis for 13 years straight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
