Serena Williams goes from being Sloan Stephens's mentor to being her enemy

Tennis sensation Sloane Stephens, 20, once said that Serena Williams was her role model and she looked up to her growing up. In fact Sloan said her dream was to be the next Serena Williams. Then the mentor and mentee met at the Australian open this past January and the mentee beat the mentor.

After then things changed between them. Apparently Serena didn't take too kindly to being beaten by Sloan and went from being Sloan's mentor to being her enemy in the blink of an eye..

In the latest issue of ESPN Magazine, Sloan blasts Serena revealing,
"She’s not said one word to me, not spoken to me, not said hi, not looked my way, not been in the same room with me since I played her in Australia. And that should tell everyone something, how she went from saying all these nice things about me to unfollowing me on Twitter.”
“Like, seriously! People should know. 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?”

If its really true,then selena is portraying the behaviour of a CHILD.....you cannot always win in life.u cannot always take the lead.you cannot always be at first place.....that doesn't mean you aint good anymore,its just the way things are meant to be.......she should learn to swallow her pride,and accept defeat......linda,oya kwa

What the heck did u expect her to do?she aint related to you in no way!Even a school boy whose position has always been first would shed a tear if he came second once,no body wants to be the king of yterday,guess her emotions got the best out of her and the best way to deal with it is by staying off you..

Cest la vie. Take heart Sloan. Just don't let it get to you. Might want to refrain from talking about it to the media ( who will surely add salt and pepper) so that you don't cut off the last avenues for reconciliation with Serena later on.

Anonymous said...

As me, Sloan is feeling pompous bcos she was able to beat serena. What stops her from saying "hi" to her if she doesn't. What stops her from following her if she doesn't. The fact dat she taught u, u learnt from her is enuf for u to respect her for life, irrespective of what. Once a mentor is always a mentor, so give her that respect. Probably u r even the one trying to turn things the other way round bcos u defeated her, and that's why she is keeping u at arm's length.

What did Sloan herself say to Serenade instead. Did she try to contact her 'mentor'? was she rebuffed?? Did Serena say anything nasty about her that she heard of?? Why d hurry to label Serena as 'bad' to the world, especially now that another grand sam is coming up.....remember what d bible says about He who digs a pit.....

I read the article. To me, Sloane just comes off as a whiny little crybaby. Serena is her competitor, not breastfeeding her. She never claimed to be her mentor. Because they are both black doesn't make her the next Serena. Tennis is competitive, Serena still wants to be on top. Sloane should just stfu and concentrate on her playing as people are already calling her beating of Serena a fluke.

Anonymous said...

I feel Serena's pain. Sloan probably formed a relationship with her, learnt her strengths and weakness and used it all to her advantage.
However, Serena, who's more experienced should have handled it better, atleast with the aid of good PR.

That might not be d reason for Serena's attitude. She might have done something else to her but attributing it to the fact that she won her, making people feel Serena is hating on her and trying to draw attention to herself cos she won Serena d star.

Serena has grown to be quite disgusting. She's the greatest snob ever, you needed to have seen her attitude when she came to Nigeria. Feeling like she's a Demi-god. Not only is she a sore loser, she's also petty. Like, jeez, why delete someone from your bbm because they beat you? Tsk tsk.

She felt betrayed cos she'd exposed her weaknesses to her protege who in turn used that against her...in the game.Oldest trick in the book,massage ur opponent's ego to create a false sense of superiority.

I see we think alike :)

Dis girl should shut up already,she talks too much. Nobody has heard anytin else frm her since she won,
she keeps braggin abt it on tv,
watchd her on ellen show too(same talk) talk more of twitter,na constant bbm update e go be so Madam serena doesn't wnt to hav it rubbed on her face every now n den so she delete d child. Is her choice.
She should cont. her trainin n make a name for herself without rubbin oda pple's own on mud.
