After losing to Agnieszka Radwanska in the fourth round of Miami, 4-6, 6-2, 6-0, Sloane Stephens' post-Australian Open record falls to 2-4. The 20-year-old, who lost in the semifinals of Melbourne, lost 10 games in a row to close out the Radwanska match.

“There’s no specific thing that I’d say has happened or is not happening, but I don’t think it really matters,” Stephens told reporters. “I’m 16 in the world. I can lose in the first round the next two months and I probably would still be Top 30. I’m not really too concerned about winning or losing or any of that, I don’t think. My life has changed, yeah, but I wouldn’t say I’m in a panic or anything.”

Stephens was then asked whether she really did want to win.

“Obviously,” she said, and then reportedly rolled her eyes and walked out of her press conference.
