Ranked: 4th in United States of America

Sloane Stephens (born March 20, 1993) is an American professional tennis player. She is currently ranked at a career-best No. 4 in the world by Women's Tennis Association (WTA). Stephens is the reigning US Open champion.

Born to athletic parents with backgrounds in collegiate swimming and professional American football, Stephens was first introduced to tennis at the club across the street from her house in Fresno, California. Her stepfather was a competitive recreational tennis player and served as her primary inspiration for beginning to play the sport. Stephens moved to Florida to train at a few different tennis academies, ultimately working with Nick Saviano for many years. She developed into a promising junior player, reaching a career-high ITF junior ranking of world No. 5 and winning three out of four Grand Slam girls' doubles titles in 2010 alongside her partner TΓ­mea Babos.

While still just 19 years old, Stephens rose to prominence on the WTA Tour at the 2013 Australian Open with a semifinal run highlighted by an upset of then world No. 3 Serena Williams. Although she climbed to as high as No. 11 towards the end of that year, she later regressed and stayed steadily ranked outside the top 25 through the end of 2015. Stephens once again appeared to begin realizing her potential in 2016 when she won three WTA titles in the first half of the season. Her successful year was then cut short by a foot injury that kept her sidelined for eleven months.

Stephens triumphantly returned from her injury in the middle of 2017 and reached consecutive Premier 5 semifinals before winning her first career major championship at the US Open. She became the first American to win a Grand Slam title in women's singles apart from the Williams sisters since Jennifer Capriati in 2002. She was also awarded WTA Comeback Player of the Year for her successful comeback season. In 2018, Stephens also won her first Premier Mandatory title at her hometown tournament, the Miami Open, and reached a second Grand Slam final at the French Open.
