"Great to see @serenawilliams & @sloanetweets have talked & figured it out. Not easy to grow up in front of world & do everything perfectly!" broadcaster and former tennis phenom Tracy Austin tweeted.

Earlier Tuesday, Williams took the high road when asked about Stephens' comments in the magazine story.

“I don’t really know. I don’t have many thoughts,” Williams told reporters in Spain after defeating Lourdes Dominguez Lino 6-2, 7-5 in the second round of the Madrid Open, answering the one question posed to her about Stephens. “I’m a big Sloane Stephens fan and always have been. I’ve always said that I think she can be the best in the world. I’ll always continue to think that and always be rooting for her."
