Sloane Stephens says her feud with Serena Williams is now ancient history. In the spring, Stephens had choice words for Williams and accused her of being unfriendly to her after the now-20-year-old upset her at the 2013 Australian Open. Stephens says she doesn’t regret anything she said, but said their relationship is good now. Williams has recently praised Stephens’ game. The two could meet in the fourth round of the U.S. Open.

“Obviously we’re coworkers, we’re Fed Cup teammates,” Stephens said. “But other than that, everything else is private. It’s fine… Love her. She’s a great competitor, one of the best players to ever play the game. There is not much else you can say. Just praise her.”
