On the latest edition of the Beyond the Baseline Podcast, host Jon Wertheim catches up with 2017 U.S. Open champion and WTA Players' Council member Sloane Stephens, who discusses her recent involvement with a three-day diversity camp she underwrote and helped organize in Orlando, Fla., with junior players from around the country who missed out on grants from the USTA. Stephens talks about her experience with the camp in 2005 and why it was important for her to host it, as well as race and diversity in tennis today, how she balances mentorship and competition in the sport, her outlook on the 2020 season and much more.
