Stephens funny moment with Rafael Nadal

In 2018, during a press conference, Sloane Stephens shared a funny story about Rafael Nadal.

The American player said that she asked him to hit together like Maria Sharapova did in Rome, but Nadal did not accept it. «Asked [Nadal]. Why didn’t you let me hit you? Y [Nadal’s coach] Francisco [Roig] said ‘You have to win another tournament to play with him’

I was like ‘fine.'» After a reporter pointed out that Stephens was a great champion, Stephens added, «I know, but it’s not good enough. It’s, like, Rafael. You have to do more. He was joking, but, still…

I was like, one day, I’m going to get over her and hit Federer, take Federer on the grass. I have to get over it, I have to. I’ll start asking soon.»
