Who is Sloane Stephens dating?

AWAY from the tennis arena, Stephens is courting US international footballer Jozy Altidore.

The striker will be a familiar name to football fans over this side of the pond after his spells with Sunderland and Hull City.

Altidore infamously scored just three times in a two-year spell at the Stadium of Light, despite playing over 50 games for the Black Cats.

Since returning back over the Atlantic to the MLS, he’s found his shooting boots again and has 60 goals in four seasons for Toronto FC.

Despite Sloane and Altidore only going ‘Instagram official’ in June 2018, they have been dating since 2016.

And it turns out that the new power couple of US sports are actually childhood friends – and have known each other since they were in the fifth grade growing up Florida.

Altidore told USA Today: “She is somebody who gets everything I am going through without having to say anything.”

The centre-forward, 29, has 42 goals in 113 caps for the USA.

When did the American win the US Open?

In 2018, she reached her second Grand Slam final, facing Simona Halep at the French Open, but went down 6-3, 4-6, 1-6.
