In Grand Slam tournaments other than her US Open win, her high finishes are the Final at the French Open in 2018, semi-finals at the Australian Open in 2013, and quarterfinals at Wimbledon in 2013. Sloane was awarded WTA Comeback Player of the Year for her impressive season in 2017, and the following year she was awarded an ESPY for top Female Tennis Player.

Sloane has also participated in the World TeamTennis league, a mixed-gender professional tennis league played with a team format.

In 2013, Sloane started the Sloane Stephens Foundation to help improve the lives of younger generations and provides a basis for life-long learning and healthy lifestyle choices through an exposure to tennis. Her foundation helps the local Los Angeles community as well as nationwide programs, building tennis courts and organizing after-school tennis programs for undeserved students, running summer camps, and supporting educational programs. In recognition of her philanthropic work, Sloane was nominated for the Muhammad Ali Sports Humanitarian Award in 2019. The foundation is run by Sloane, her mother Sybil, and her uncle Ronald Smith.
