MELBOURNE, Australia - After beating Serena Williams to reach her first Grand Slam semifinal, Sloane Stephens was understandably speechless - but watch her open up and let her personality shine through as Rennae Stubbs interviews her on court. Also, a few quotes from her post-match presser.

Quotable Quotes: Sloane Stephens

On what she would have said if someone told her after the US Open she would achieve this...
"I would say let's do it. Let's just go ahead and do it. Obviously a lot of hard work. Just grateful to be in this position and happy that everything that I've done has come together."

On trying to use her phone after the match...
"I couldn't really do anything because the messages were coming in, so I couldn't read anything. I was like, 'Wait, this is pointless.' So I just put it down."

On how many messages were on the phone...
"I have like 200 and something now. Wait, I can tell you how many - 213 on this one. This is kind of cool. I have 213 on this one, and then I don't use this one. I only talk to one person, two people on this phone, and I had like 20 messages. I was like, 'Oh, interesting.' But, yeah."

On replying to those messages...
"I'm trying to figure that out because I thought it was free to receive text messages, but someone told me otherwise. I'm still trying to figure out what I'm going to do, because my phone bill is going to be crazy and my mom is going to be like, 'Oh my God, your phone bill.' She's going to be like, 'The money you were going to buy yourself something nice with, you're going to pay your phone bill.'"

On her Twitter followers before and after the match...
"I had 17,000; now I have 35,000."

On the tweets that came in...
"John Legend tweeted me. Dirk tweeted me. I mean, I'm just excited. I want John Legend to sing at my wedding. I was like, 'Oh my God, he tweeted me.' What can I do? I don't know. I'm still thinking."
