If Alexandra Stevenson retires ... is she HOF worthy?

She made the Wimbledon semis as a qualifier, just like John McEnroe AND HE IS IN THE HALL OF FAME.

So ... yes.

Re: If Alexandra Stevenson retires ... is she HOF worthy?

as much as i like her...i would have to say no.

It was a nice accomplishment making it to the semifinals of Wimbledon as a qualifier, but comparing her to what McEnroe achieved? She never won a wtatour title. So definitely not. McEnroe won several grand slams after the semifinal run at Wimbledon...Stevenson hasn't come close to even a semifinal result since that.

John McEnroe won a "couple more" slams and titles though...

You'd love to what, Maria?

Re: If Alexandra Stevenson retires ... is she HOF worthy?

She should be made a HOFer because she had the most devastating serve in the history of womens tennis. Ever.

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.

Well no. She's very talented and she has a few outstanding results throughout her career, but none if this is anywhere near Hall of Fame level. Sorry Alex

NO.7: VenusWilliams
NO.6: SerenaWilliams

Her estranged father is in the HOF, so she should be too.

You don't close your eyes, even for a milli-second,
when Serena is backed into a corner and looking to bust out.

I will only support Stevenson getting into the Hall of Fame if her exhibit is right between Nicole Pratt and Conchita Martinez!
