Talking Why won't STEVENSON enter any ITF tourneys to get back on track ?

Its amazing to me that she is not entered in ANY of the upcoming 50k and 75k tourneys in the US...i mean does she think she is too good to go back down to the ITFs for a few weeks ??
I am not a huge fan at all..BUT...it would make the most sense to get some court time and get some matches in rather than keep LOSING in the 1st rds and qualifying...??

as well as the fact that she is still living off a fluke semifinal appearance at wimbledon from 1999.... five years ago

Hmm not to sure...i mean HOW much lower is she going to fall before someone pulls her aside and sit her down about this....you even see players like Reeves and Brandi that 20-30 spots higher up still taking part in USA challengers..i mean even if she just won a few rds she would get some points and play in.. Do u think she could take Brandi ?

Where is she getting the points from to even be at 89 in the world ?? I havn't seen her win a match in months..do u think she will keep playing untill she ABSOLUTLY has to play 10k challengers and fight it out with Kristen Shukleber ?

Her "coach's" head is so far up her ass that she can't see that her daughter isn't WTA level right now, and is probably telling Alex to continue playing bigger tourneys.

Well..its going to be even more EMBARRISSING when her ranking is so l ow that she HAS to play ITFs..there won't be a choice..well..the choice will be either play ITFs or retire and work for mommy at the newspaper company

There is a point where the WCs will stop and her ranking will be too low even for the Qualies if this keeps up...seriously...when was the last time she won a match and how far did she get in Memphis last year..i think pretty far which would explain her ranking... ????

her mom is the wall that's not letting her move forward with her her game, and its a shame cause she has a big serve and big strokes and she needs to get all those together

I AGREE..i mean i really am not a fan of hers..but i really hate to see ANYONE do so poorly... didn't her mom get into a fight with Tauziet because they posted an article of Natalie beating Alex..then her mom was screaming at the board..she taired off the article and Natalie saw her doing this..came up from behind and shoved her into a tennis ball practice shooter ?
