In 2015, American tennis player Sloane Stephens also threw shade at Serena, claiming the tennis champ acts like a wolf in sheep's clothing. "People should know. They think she's so friendly and she's so this and she's so that. No, that's not reality," Stephens said, according to ESPN UK . "She's not said one word to me, not spoken to me, not said 'hi', not looked my way, not been in the same room with me since I played her in Australia." Stephens continued, "And that should tell everyone something, how she went from saying all these nice things about me to unfollowing me on Twitter. You don't unfollow someone on Twitter, delete them off of BlackBerry Messenger. I mean, what for? Why?"
October 26, 1975 a Challenge of the Sexes event was held in Mission Viejo, CA televised on CBS. It involved male and female athletes from various sports, such as Laura Baugh and Jane Blalock vs. Hale Irwin and Doug Sanders in golf, and Jerry West vs. Karen Logan in basketball. The tennis event pitted future Wimbledon champion Virginia Wade vs. Björn Borg , and Nastase vs. Evonne Goolagong . A single set was played where the men were limited to one serve and the women had the added area of the alleys for shot placement. Borg, Wade, and Goolagong entered the court in standard attire and demeanor, while Nastase entered wearing a dress. With Martina Navratilova also in the packed audience, Borg defeated Wade 6–3, but Goolagong defeated Nastase 7–5.
