Sloane Stephens gave the United States something to smile about after dominating her opponent, Madison Keys to take the U.S. Open title on Sunday. The 24 year-old player took only 61 minutes to knock down her good friend and opponent by 6-3 6-0 after sitting out 11 months because of foot surgery.

Stephens played a wonderfully composed match making only six unforced errors. Stephens, ranked 83 in the world coming into the fortnight – although she has previously been as high as 12 where she became the lowest listed player to win a Major since the unranked Kim Clijsters returned from having a baby in 2009.
