At 28 years, Sloane Stephens has many reasons to celebrate. The sports star has accomplished so much over the years in her personal life and professional career.

A SUNKISSED BEAUTY
Stephens' post was a stunning outdoors photo and video of herself clad in a white bikini top with matching bottoms with chic button and belt detail. She paired her look with a stylish red bucket hat.
In the first slide, Stephens posed with her hands on her hips to show off her toned arms and shoulders while accentuating her slim waist. In the second slide, the fit athlete twirled around to give a full view of her enviable curves.
Stephens' sunkissed skin was highlighted in both posts as she was pictured posing in a lush green garden, with palm trees and a beautiful double-story building behind her.
The tennis star also showed her vibrant energy as she flashed a million-dollar smile which left her fans gushing as they wished her a great birthday. Her positivity was also reflected in her caption, which read:
"Cheers to 28 ? I hope this next year around the sun brings more love, happiness and success than ever before! "
CHEERS TO 28 YEARS
If Stephens' 28th year follows the trajectory of her previous years, then she has a lot to look forward to. In 2020, the tennis star completed her MBA through Devry University while playing professional tennis and giving back to the community.
In August, she partnered with Mercedes-Benz to raise over $150k through the USTA Foundation. The "Ace the US Open" initiative was aimed at helping young athletes.
HIGHS AND LOWS OF LIFE
Stephens' love life has also been flourishing. In 2019, she said "I do" to Jozy Altidore, who she had been dating for at least two years. The lovebirds announced the amazing news on their Instagram pages.
Stephens and Altidore, who have known each other since childhood, prefer to keep their relationship private, but they have opened up about each other over the years and revealed how much support they have for each other.
While Stephens has experienced many career highs, she has also had many low points over the years. The 2017 US Open champion has dealt with loss both on and off the court.
One of the most heartbreaking losses occurred earlier this year when she lost both her grandparents within the same year. Despite being devasted by their deaths, Stephens said she hoped to make them proud every day.
