With clear support and defined boundaries, Stephens enjoyed a return to form in 2022, winning her first title in four years and reaching the quarterfinals at Roland Garros.
“I’m very good at moving on,” she says of overcoming disappointment. “I’ll be upset for an hour and then I’m like, ‘That’s it. What am I going to do next?’ The reality of tennis is that no one wins every week of the year, and if you play 20 tournaments, you could lose 20 times. I won one tournament and lost like, 19 other times!”
