Sloane Stephens is making headlines as a rising star in American tennis. Ranked No. 17 by the Women's Tennis Association, Sloane recently created waves by defeating longtime tennis champ Serena Williams (who angrily broke her racket as a result). Stephens was born in Florida in 1993 to Sybil Smith - a former swimmer at Boston University and the first African-American female to be named First Team All-American in Division I history - and John Stephens, a professional American football player. Her younger brother, Shawn, plays baseball and football at Notre Dame.
Obviously athleticism is in her bloodlines. However, Stephens is also a fashion hybrid, having been featured in Vogue, Teen Vogue, ESPN The Magazine, USA Today, and Sports Illustrated. After her recent clash with the always interesting Serena Williams, Stephens has cemented her reputation as one to watch both on the courts and off.
