Bio She has won five singles titles, including her first major at the 2017 US Open. With the victory, she became the lowest ranked player (83rd) to ever win the women's singles title and the first American woman outside the Williams sisters to win a Grand Slam since Jennifer Capriati in 2002.

Stephens was born in Plantation, Florida, to Sybil Smith (who, in 1988 as a swimmer at Boston University, became the first African-American female to be named First Team All-American in Division I history) and John Stephens, a professional American football player. John Stephens was killed in a car accident on September 1, 2009, the day after the start of the US Open. Sloane Stephens attended her father's funeral in Louisiana, but she remained entered in the US Open. Her younger brother, Shawn Farrell, plays baseball and football at Notre Dame High School in Los Angeles.

She started playing tennis at the age of nine, at the Sierra Sport and Racquet Club, in Fresno, California, where her mother and stepfather introduced her to the sport. Two years later Stephens relocated from Fresno to Boca Raton, Florida, where she began training at the prestigious Evert Tennis Academy. A year later at the age of 12, Stephens stepped up her training once again by joining the Nick Saviano High Performance Tennis Academy, and switching to online-based home-schooling, which allowed her to maximize her time spent on the court. She graduated from high school in 2011. Stephens currently splits time between her home in Florida and Los Angeles, where she trains at the USTA training center at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. She stated that her favorite surface is clay when she entered the 2012 Wimbledon Championships.

She has cited Kim Clijsters, Venus Williams and Serena Williams as her main inspirations in tennis. She also cited her grandfather as her biggest influence growing up.
