Sloane Stephens Wins 1st Grand Slam with US Open Final Victory over Madison Keys


Sloane Stephens completed her epic run through the 2017 U.S. Open with a 6-3, 6-0 win over Madison Keys in Sunday’s final.

This is not only the first career Grand Slam title for Stephens, but she also became the first American woman other than Venus and Serena Williams to win a major since Jennifer Capriati in 2002.

The 24-year-old was ranked No. 934 in the world last month and entered the tournament ranked 83rd, but she shocked everyone with the best two weeks of her career.
