Stephens was in her feelings when Serena Williams unfollowed her on Twitter and eased up on the communication after Stephens beat her at the Australian Open.
What Stephens needs to learn is in the world of professional sports, you have no friends. You canāt be buddy buddy with everyone and Serena sees her a threat, so I am not surprised she doesnāt want to do girl talk with her. Serena took the high road and realized it was Stephensā youth talking and squashed the beef.
āIām a big Sloane Stephens fan and always have been. Iāve always said that I think she can be the best in the world. Iāll always continue to think that and always be rooting for her.ā
Stephens seemed to understand that she was only making herself look bad and issued an apology on Twitter.
Guilty of being naive. Much respect 4 @serenawilliams , a champ & the GOAT. We spoke, weāre good. ONWARD! #lifelessons
