Back in early 2014, I shared Sloane Stephens’ boyfriend update in my WTA Players and their Love Partners category, when she dated fellow tennis player Jack Sock, but today I ran across a questionable title stating something like “Girlfriend of Jozy Altidore makes the US Open semifinals” and when I googled further I confirmed it that the soccer star is indeed Sloane’s new guy.
There are no photos of the power couple on their social media at the moment, but on Twitter I have found this photo of them together that Sloane had apparently posted at some point in June.
Jozy plays as a forward for Toronto FC and the United States national team. The 27-year-old was born to Haitian immigrants in Livingston, New Jersey and raised in Boca Raton, Florida.
Sloane’s tennis is impressing this fortnight at the US Open, just as in the tournament lead-up period. After an 11-month foot injury layoff that included a surgery in January, the 24-year-old made a return at Wimbledon 2017. On August 7th, 2017, Sloane was ranked as slow as No.934, but back-to-back semifinals at Toronto and Cincinnati saw her jump to No.83, which is the biggest ranking jump of any player during that time frame, and now the run to the US Open semifinals is projected to further propel her to the Top 35.
In the final four of the Grand Slam, Sloane is set to face fellow American Venus Williams and if she wins that match as well, she’ll rise to No.21 in the WTA rankings, while the title would bring her to No.15.
