After the departure of Andy Roddick, US tennis has been suffering from serious talent crunch. Yes, there are the likes of John Isner and Sam Querrey, but they are not even featured in the top 10. While, women’s side is single-handedly led by Serena Williams and now the obvious question that comes forth is that what would happen, once Williams sisters will bid adieu to tennis. Who will ensure that US tennis will continue to set high standards to enrich its glorious past? Well, it might be too early to say but in women’s department, we have the rising American Sloane Stephens, who has the potential and enough time to make her presence felt in a longer run. Currently ranked as World No. 17 in the WTA Rankings, Stephens has emerged as a next big star on the forefront, who looks highly promising. Twenty year old American will be in action today against World No. 196 Petra Cetkovska of Czech Republic in a second-round match of the 2013 Wimbledon.
Still in the early stage of her career, Stephens finished in the third-round at Wimbledon last year. She started off the new season on a high note after she beat her childhood idol Serena Williams in the Aussie Open quarterfinals. Though, she could not advance beyond the semis, the feisty American left an indelible mark on the minds of tennis followers. Stepehns has made a tremendous improvement in her rankings over a last couple of years. She has a decent 20-13 win-loss record for the season. After an easy first round victory over her compatriot Jamie Hampton, Stephens faced a big challenge in the second-round in the form of Andrea Petkovic, but the American showed nerves of steel during the crucial moments of the match and earned a well-deserved victory in three testing sets.
Petra Cetkovska has not played much on tour this season. In fact, the Czech missed a greater part of the ongoing season due to injuries, consequently her rankings plummeted. She has an ordinary 4-3 win-loss record for the season so far. The twenty eight year old Czech played fine-tennis in her last match to knock out Caroline Wozniacki in straight sets. She must be feeling pumped-up ahead of this contest against Stephens.
This will be a second-meeting between these two. Interestingly, last time they took on each other last season in the same-stage of the Championships and Stephens triumphed then in straight sets. Well, the Czech must be looking forward to avenge that loss, but she will have to show same form, which she exhibited against the former World No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki in her last match.
