Serena Williams was in a good mood today when reporters approached eager to capture a response to fellow American tennis player Sloane Stephens’ scathing comments. Stephens unleashed a fury of negative comments against Williams in an interview with ESPN magazine.
“They think she’s so friendly and she’s so this and she’s so that – no, that’s not reality! You don’t unfollow someone on Twitter, delete them off of BlackBerry Messenger. I mean, what for? Why?”
After defeating Lourdes Dominguez at the second round of the Madrid Open, Serena told reporters,
“I don’t really know. I don’t have many thoughts. I’m a big Sloane Stephens fan and always have been. I’ve always said that I think she can be the best in the world. I’ll always continue to think that and always be rooting for her.
“So I really just always wish her — and anyone, really, especially from America — the best. We don’t have that many American players, so it’s always exciting to see so many young players doing so well.”
Sloane Stephens tweeted her own response: “Guilty of being naive. Much respect 4 @serenawilliams , a champ & the GOAT. We spoke, we’re good. ONWARD! #lifelessons“
Hmm…is this PR talking or did the two American players really patch things up?
