Sloane Stephens' Birthday Cheer

Sloane Stephens may have turned 21 earlier this week, but she is still waiting on a couple of gifts.

Sloane Stephens turned 21 on Thursday and while she could still mark the occasion with the ultimate present, a maiden WTA title, she has made a back-up list just in case.

An inflatable movie screen, a 12-person tent and a ping-pong table all made their way onto the list, which Stephens compiled with the help of American store Target.

While deciding on the gifts was easy enough, Stephens did encounter one slight problem: Target does not offer a birthday registry. The solution? She chose a wedding registry instead.

"I was going to marry myself, but I couldn't put my same name," Stephens said last week in Indian Wells. "I ended up having to put my mom's!

"I was just going to send out at mass text about it, but my mom got in there first. She sent an e-mail saying, 'Dear everyone, Sloane has married me on Target. You have to go to the wedding registry to find her thing or whatever.'"

While, a few gifts still remain on the list, most have already been snapped up, including the World No.16's favorite, the 12-person tent.

"I'm excited about it. I'm hoping to get all 35. I want to go on this luxurious RV camp. You can rent an RV and they also assemble your tents for you, but it's like a Four Seasons so there are showers and stuff. I'm looking forward to it and that's why I put a tent on there."

And while she waits to tick off those final items, she can turn her attention to getting her hands on that ultimate gift a week on Saturday.
