Going In: Sloane Stephens Still in the Game At Wimbledon

Sloane Stephens has prevailed in three sets to become the only American to survive  the quarterfinals at Wimbledon.

On the same day that No. 1 seed Serena Williams was bounced from the tournament, Stephens was able to secure a victory over Monica Puig, making it the second time in the past three Grand Slam tournaments that she has advanced beyond Williams.
