Talk about an upset! Rising American star Sloane Stephens took on her idol Serena Williams in the quarter-finals giving U.S. tennis a boost with her victory. It was the first time Serena, 31, had never lost to a younger U.S. player during her entire professional career. Stephens, who is just 19, is scheduled to face Victoria Azarenka in a Melbourne semifinal.
