In a second consecutive effort, American wild card Sloane Stephens has qualified for the main draw, defeating Australian’s Sophie Ferguson. Stephens prevailed in the first set tie-break, 7-6(4), and ran away with the second set 6-1.
Last week Sloane came through qualifying to enter the main draw of the BNP Paribas Open Indian Wells, California, where she exited in the second round.
