More About Sloane; Her Family And Career Lives:
Sloane, 24, belongs to an athletic family as her parents were both sportspersons. Her father, John Stephens was an American football player who played six seasons in the NFL while her mother, Sybil Smith was an all-American swimmer at her college, Boston University.
John and Sybil had a divorce when Sloane was just a young child and was since closer to her mother than her father. Sources also report that she had only embarked on a phone relationship with her father in 2006 and had met him twice or thrice in person.
Tragically, John died on September 1, 2009, when his pickup truck ran off Louisiana highway and hit some trees. Well, it wasn't the only loss she had; she previously lost her stepfather, Sheldon Farrell, the one who introduced her to tennis, at the age of 14.
However, Sloane still seems to be strong after all those tragic life incidents, and her mother has always been there whenever she needed her; assisting her to build a respectable tennis career.
Concerning her career, her WTA ranking is currently 17 as she has recently been successful to claim her first grand slam title defeating her fellow American player, Madison Keys in the US Open.
The win was probably a dramatic comeback for Sloane, as she had a stress fracture in her foot and had also been losing past tournaments. The fracture was indeed the result of the foot injury which she previously suffered by the end of the last season.
Sloane posted a 6-3, 6-0 victory over Madison on September 9 to win the title and got awarded with a $3.7 million winners cheque. With the grand prize, her career earning has now raised over $8 million while her net worth is currently estimated to be $2 million.
