Stephens backs off from comments
Ah, the trials and flubs of youth.
Sloane Stephens created a furor last week with her overhead slamming comments of Serena Williams in an interview with ESPN The Magazine. Now, the rising American tennis player is backing off her digs.
That tweet is a different tune than Stephens spoke in her interview while discussing an icy relationship between the pair since the youngster upset a hobbled Serena in Australia.
"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," Stephens told the magazine. "And that should tell everyone something, how she went from saying all these nice things about me to unfollowing me on Twitter."
Her mom tries to slow her down, but Sloane is insistent. "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?"
There was also the question of a tweet Serena apparently aimed at Stephens.
I made you.— Serena Williams (@serenawilliams) January 26, 2013
But that has yet to be answered and Serena hasn’t returned Stephens’ new sentiments … yet.
