  • 6. BONUS: Sloane Stephens Reminds Us Why The 2013 AO Was Iconic

    Who doesn't love a bonus Humpday (and Valentine's Day!) treat? Since we can't cuddle up with Grigor Dimitrov, we decided to drop a bonus episode. The Australian Open account shared an interview with Sloane Stephens, and per usual, Sloane crushed it. In it, she hilariously talks about winning another slam, her old beef with Victoria Azarenka (!) and much more. You can watch the video here. We recap the video and then remind everyone about how dramatic, iconic and ridiculous the 2013 Australian Open was for the ladies. Enjoy this short bonus episode from us!

This is one of our most fun episodes yet. And to keep with the reality TV theme, we also discuss the "reality show" promo the ATP released this week. If you haven't seen it, check it out here.
