Just this spring Sloane Stephens was rehabbing post foot surgery and Madison Keys had just returned to the WTA tour after wrist surgery. Today Stephens is the newly crowned US Open champ and Madison Keys is the newly-minted US Open finalist.
While rehabbing, Stephens did a stint as a lifestyle correspondent for Tennis Channel, providing special features during Indian Wells and Charleston. On Off-Court with Sloane Stephens at the Volvo Open, Stephens sat down with her bestie Keys to talk about Keys's return to the tour and her chances of reaching the year-end final eight.
Who knew then that these two would play the final of the US Open five months later?
