Sloane Stephen wins 2017 US Open

Sloane Stephens overwhelmed fellow American and No.15 seed Madison Keys, 6-3, 6-0, to win her first Grand Slam title at the 2017 US Open, on Saturday afternoon in Arthur Ashe Stadium.

"It hasn’t sunk in yet,” Stephens said in her post-match press conference, “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.”

“I made six unforced errors in the whole match?” exclaimed Stephens afterwards. “I don’t think that’s ever happened to me before. That’s a stat. Snaps for me,” she continued, snapping her fingers.

With the title, Stephens moves up to World No.17 — a far cry from her oft-discussed No.975 ranking to start the summer. Stephens also improves to 5-0 in WTA finals.
