Alexandra is back

Alexandra Stevenson is playing this week at the 50K ITF event in Louisville, KY. I thought her fans would like to know. I think this is her first event back after a long injury absence (shoulder?), but I may be incorrect. She faces Jewel Peterson in the 1st round and probably Shihka Uberoi in the 2nd.

She played in the 50K Los Gatos challenger a couple weeks ago and lost first round by 6-1 5-7 6-3 to Ryoko Fuda, who should be in the top 100 within the next several months...

That's a winnable 1r match for Alex.

Will be interesting to see how Jewel handles this ...

but good for Alex, to hit the Challengers and not just count on WCs into the WTA events. You can't fault her for that.

I actually believe that Alex has loads of talent and that her injuries played a huge part in her not performing well. That and her lack of fitness.

If she can get her ass fit and start gaining some confidence she'll be top 20 in no time. barring injuries too of course. Alex has game and I can't wait until she climbs back to the top 20 again.

How old is Alex nowadays, anyway? 23, 24 or so?

That is sadly true ._.


Of all people, why did she choose to be Alex's bitch?

Go Alexandra. When I first got into tennis, I always heard of her, but I was never able to watch her play. Hopefully she can regain her form and start playing GSes so I can finally watch a match of hers.

Lexy is 24.
She'll be 25 in december.

I hope she does well here and wins
a few matches.

I like her chances against
Jewel and possibly Shikha.

Hard to believe she's like ranked #834
