Sucks but move on, she isn't your buddy. Never heard anybody say she was nice. Most have said she is highly competitive and rude.

i'm kinda torn.  on one hand....Serena don't have to say nothing to you.  She don't know u.  On the other hand....I just feel like as an older WOC in the game...at least give a head nod of acknowledgement.  She don't have to mentor her but....quite frankly if Serena "took her under her wing"....it would look hella good for Serena's PR.
 
But yeah...I understand she might be hurt cause she might have looked up to her but...most star athletes are jerkish and primadonna's.  it is what it is.

In the interview, Stephens said that she is still upset that the Williams sisters did not sign a poster she had of them when she saw them at a Fed Cup match when she was 12.

“I waited all day [for an autograph],” she said. “They walked by three times and never signed our posters.”

Stephens said because of that, she eventually decided that Kim Clijsters would be her favorite player.

Serena has never said that she was consistently mentoring Stephens, although she has been asked many times about it. She did work with Stephens a bit during a 2012 Fed Cup tie in Ukraine.

“It's hard to be a real mentor when you're still in competition,” Williams said prior to their Australian Open quarterfinal. “But I'm here to compete and do the best I can, as well as she. And she's been doing really amazing. I'm really happy [for her].”


lmfao, ole girl been mad for 8+ years over an autograph ?

After Serena retires maybe. She says she is happy for her. Sloan is really suppose to approach Serena since she is the younger.
They are competitors for now. See no issue

Serena won't be happy till she beats Sloane so she needs to get with the program and stop expecting preferential treatment just cuz she's black.

This reminds me of those threads where people complain about being expected to smile and be pretentious to make other people feel comfortable.

Lol

Serena won't ever talk to her now.

 
But she is rude as hell though. I'll still cape for her in public but will huff "wit her ol ugly ass" under my breath.

 Sloane probably should have kept that to her self.  just because you have feelings and ideas running through you head dont mean theyre based on truth.  you got balls to hit focus on that and stop letting these reporters use you.

i remember when i was about 19 or 20 this older black woman accosted me at work and asked me why im always staring at her (we worked in different offices) and rolling my eyes like she did something to me.  i quickly told her not only do i not know who she is but i cant see anyone in the next department without my glasses let alone picking out people to roll my eyes at.  she stood their for second looking stupid and said well im sorry then.  Ermm

Lol, I'm glad that she had the initiative to ask rather than let it fester, though.
