Don’t know the name Sloane Stephens? You’ll remember her name now that she, on Wednesday, defeated women’s tennis great and African American trailblazer Serena Williams at the Australian Open. Stephens, 19, who is also black, introduced herself to a global audience by beating 31-year-old Williams, 3-6, 7-5, 6-4. The up-and-comer is the youngest in the Women’s Tennis Association’s Top 40 athletes. In post-match interviews, Stephens said she has looked up to Williams and once had a post of her on her bedroom wall. “This is so crazy, by oh my goodness,” she said, wiping away tears. “I think I put [up] a poster of myself now.” (New York Times)
