Go Inside Sloane Stephens' Target Registry

No rest for the wedded, or so the saying goes.

Actually, no, I just made that up, but Sloane Stephens took a play out of Carrie Bradshaw's book by signing up for a singles registry at a certain age. (Sloane is on the cusp of age 21. For Sarah Jessica Parker's Sex and the City character, it was more like 35.) Better yet, Stephens added her mother, Sybil, to the Target wedding registry she created. The two are rather inseparable, but it ends there. In the meantime, you can review the mother-daughter tandem's full list here.

Per the Associated Press, "Stephens looked at the registry and knows two gifts have already been purchased — ear buds and a food blender. Among her other wants are a waffle iron, a foot spa, a ping pong table, an inflatable movie screen and a karaoke player."

Other wish-list items include lip balm (yawn), a karaoke machine (is this thing on?), a 12-person tent (oh, the fun those fresh-faced kids will have), and ... a vintage Library Monopology book game.

Sounds good, Sloane. You do you.

She turns 21 on March 20 and, by the sound of it, wasn't terribly torn up about losing in the Indian Wells quarterfinals to Flavia Pennetta, who continues her hard-court prowess after appearing in the 2013 U.S. Open semifinals.

What's your favorite item on Sloane's list? And, if we're going to take it there, do you wish she had shown more fire in her quarterfinal showdown with Pennetta, who now owns a 3-1 record against her? Sound off below.
