Australian Open semifinalist Sloane Stephens admits she has been overwhelmed by the attention put on her after she upset Serena Williams in Melbourne. After a fantastic month in Australia, Stephens lost in the second round of Doha and in the first round of Dubai.

“I’m in a completely new situation. I’m coming from not being seeded at tournaments to seeded and coming somewhere I have never been before,” the 19-year-old Stephens told Sport360. “It’s definitely a change for me, and obviously I have a lot more media responsibilities and things like that and a lot of things—my life has changed drastically. I’m going through a change, and sometimes it doesn’t click right away. But I’m working on it.”
