Under Armour tennis ace Sloane Stephens now has a Grand Slam championship on her résumé.
During today’s women’s singles final — an all-American athlete matchup — Stephens defeated Nike-sponsored Madison Keys, who was also without a major tournament trophy, in straight sets, 6-3, 6-0. Stephens’ level of play was outstanding, and she made quick work of Keys, finishing her off in under 90 minutes.
The Under Armour-sponsored athlete — and one of the sport’s brightest young stars — hit the Arthur Ashe Stadium court in Flushing, N.Y., in a predominantly white Under Armour performance tennis sneaker, currently unavailable for consumers. Keys wore the NikeCourt Zoom Vapor 9.5.
Going into Saturday’s final, Stephens, ranked 83rd in the world, was not favored by tennis experts to beat Keys, who was ranked No. 16.
Nike athlete Rafael Nadal and Lotto-sponsored Kevin Anderson will compete for the men’s singles U.S. Open title on Sunday, with the match set to take place at 4 p.m. ET.
