Follow tennis? It’s been an exciting two weeks for tennis fans around the world as the US Open once again proved to be one of the most thrilling events in all of tennis. For the first time in more than a decade, the women’s finals featured two American players. Who came out on top? Sloane Stephens, an unseeded player (or someone who is not ranked in the top sixteen) took the title from more experienced and fifteenth-seeded player, Madison Keys. As for the men’s finals, it was all about top-seeded player Rafael Nadal. Congrats on your sixteenth Grand Slam title, Mr. Nadal!
