Gif of the Day: the joy of Sloane Stephens

If you wanted to show someone what the emotive combination of surprise and joy looks like, you should show them this gif of Sloane Stephens, the 19-year-old rising star who is the talk of the tennis world after upsetting Serena Williams at theĀ AustralianĀ Open on Tuesday. She looks so happy she’s about to jump out of her own body. (If the image doesn’t load for you, just go here).

What’s this doing on our Fresno blog, you ask? Well, Stephens lived here as a child before moving to Florida to pursue her tennis career. Congrats, Sloane, from us back here in Fresno.
