Sloane Stephens recently shared her "annoying" experience with her husband, soccer player Jozy Altidore, at the nail salon.

During a press conference at the ongoing San Diego Open, Stephens was asked by one of the reporters:

“You’re like a nail enthusiast, you like getting manicures and pedicures, have you ever had like a bad experience or something?”

While the American enjoys her trips to the salon, she revealed that taking her husband along was one of the most annoying experiences of her life.

“I wouldn’t say I’ve had a bad experience. I’ve never gotten like a toe infection or anything like that," she said. "But I will say, I take my husband now & it’s literally the most annoying experience of my life. That would be the only bad experience that I’ve had at a nail salon.”

Stephens went on to describe Altidore's reactions to a pedicure.

“You know he’s ticklish and moving and squirming and like it’s not relaxing. I’m like ‘stop moving, other people are looking.’” she added.
