lol... nothing to do with Blacks. Collins is playing well too, almost out of nowhere. (No she didn't win Indian Wells or Miami )

True: I like Collins but her fake grunt is not good. She's got heart but I like Dolehide as well as Kayla Day

lol... those sudden grunts that came 35 minutes after she hit ball were ridiculous.

Dolehide should do well here. She's got a good game.
She moves so well with those huge watermelons she is carrying.
God bless her chest!

And, fearing expectations, she runs hiding.

Sloane Stephens needs some time to rest after her impressive run in Miami. (AP)

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) U.S. Open champion Sloane Stephens has withdrawn from the Volvo Car Open, citing mental and physical exhaustion after her run to the Miami Open title this past Saturday.

@Grossefavourite:
"And, fearing expectations, she runs hiding."

And if it were Halep or Wozniacki, you'd say they are chasing points and need to manage their schedules better.

Going from one tournament to the next, especially after winning a huge title like Miami with big wins, is already very difficult to do. Let alone transition from hard to clay in less than a week. Sloane is no longer entering events just for fun. She's entering events to win. If she can't feel like she can be at her best, she should skip and rest. She already won Charleston. There are bigger titles to snatch in Europe.

@ Grossefavourite:
 
What "fearing expectations"?

People expected a lot after her win at the US Open and see: seven months later she delivers by winning Miami.
If she manages to win a big title every six months, then she will be one of the most successful players of her generation.

Maybe that is the point being made? Sloane can't handle the weight of expectations so after a big
win she needs to go on a walkabout for a few months. After expectations have died down and she
isn't seen as any favorite to win she feels free to just play.

@ Pyotr:

If that strategy results in multiple slams and other big titles, then that is just fine... reminds me of Kvitova, by the way.
