Sloane Stephens has all the makings of a superstar: She has game, she has a fighter's spirit, and now she has a US Open title to her name. And, as she reminded the world during her press conference after Saturday's life-changing victory, she's got charisma for days.
Here are some highlights from her championship presser:
Upon learning she made just six unforced errors in the final:
"I made six unforced errors in the whole match? Shut the front door. Oh, my God, I don't think that's ever happened to me before. Oh, my God! That's a stat! Snaps for me (snapping fingers).
"Okay, go ahead. What was the question?"

On how she spent the night before the final:
"I was literally in my room twiddling my thumbs, looking at - I literally was looking at car reviews last night on Autotrader. Literally. That's how bored I was. I didn't have anything to do, and I was like, I don't really want to call anyone, I don't want to call friends or anything, because then they're gonna be like, 'Oh, you're in the finals!' So I was like, OK, let me just sit here and do nothing."
When asked whether she's looking to buy a car:
"No. I was just looking at safety reviews, honestly. That's kind of weird, but that's what I was doing, yeah."
On whether she's motivated to win another Slam:
"Of course, girl, did you see that check that lady handed me? Like, yes. Man, if that doesn't make you want to play tennis, I don't know what will.
"So, yes, definitely."
On whether she feels bad for Madison Keys after beating her 6-3, 6-0:
"Bad for her? She was in the finals, too! What do you mean? Did you see the check she's about to get? I'm sure she'll be just fine."
On posing with the US Open championship trophy:
"Everyone has the cutest photos on the walls in here with this trophy, and that's what I remember seeing most. Everyone has their best pictures.

"So, when I was taking my pictures, I was worried about, like, my boob sweat. Because I was like, 'This is the picture they're probably going to use and I look terrible.' That's what I remember most about the picture.
