Sloane Stephens: My Grandfather
Grandfathers can do it all—just ask Sloane Stephens.
Published Dec 02, 2015
My hero is my grandpa because he’s the best person who ever lived on this planet. I love him so much and he taught me everything that I know. He taught me how to read, how to garden, how to plant, how to cook, how to make bread, the colors of the rainbow, everything. Every Sunday we Face Time on his iPhone 6 Plus. Our talks aren’t about tennis, but he told me that I need to keep my racquet parallel to the net at all times.
