|Sloane Stephens after match with Serena|
Stephens was stoic about the long wait, sitting on the bench, staring at nothing, trying to keep her head in the game and her game in high gear. But the long break in the action took a toll on her focus or energy, and she could still take a great deal of satisfaction in her overall performance.
Nineteen-year-old Stephens was a crowd favorite against Azarenka, so there was a lot of discontent with the manner in which Azarenka took time to settle herself down and eventually advance to the Finals.
Great things will be forthcoming for Sloane Stephens, even Serena Williams predicts that.
