Serena Williams didn't have many thoughts on Sloane Stephens' comments in a recent interview with ESPN The Magazine, in which the 20-year-old criticized the world No. 1 player and revealed the truth about their relationship, or lack there of.
After a win in straight sets at the Madrid Open, Williams opted to take the high road when asked about Stephens' criticism.
"I don’t have many thoughts. I’m a big Sloane Stephens fan and always have been. I’ve always said that I think she can be the best in the world," said Serena, via Sports Illustrated. "I'll always continue to think that and always be rooting for her.
So I really just always wish her — and anyone, really, especially from America — the best. We don’t have that many American players, so it’s always exciting to see so many young players doing so well."
In a recent interview, Stephens claimed that Williams hasn't said a word to her since the Australian Open and ripped her for "unfollowing me on Twitter."
On Tuesday, Stephens backed off her comments and tweeted that she's "guilty of being naive."
