During the Australian Open earlier this year, Sloane Stephens had claimed that she would quit tennis as soon as she won her second Grand Slam trophy.

"There's more, I feel like there's more but let me tell you this, if I win a Grand Slam, I’m never playing tennis again. That would be the last, I’ll be like: 'I'll see you guys never, I’m out,'" Sloane Stephens said (at 1:50) in an episode of 'Cinema Sessions.'

At this, Stephens' head coach Kamau Murray chimed in from the other side of the couch and voiced a similar wish for himself. Murray said:

"If you win a Grand Slam, I’m going to ask for my bonus check and I’m going to quit the next day too. Because my kids and my wife, they miss me. So, as soon as you win again, cut the check and let me go about my business."

Sloane Stephens claimed her solitary Major trophy at the 2017 US Open. She notably entered the draw using her protected ranking and went all the way.

Stephens defeated the likes of Roberta Vinci, Dominika Cibulkova, Ashleigh Barty, Julia Gorges, Anastasija Stevastova, and Venus Williams to make the final. She then took down Madison Keys 6-3, 6-0 in the summit clash.
