Re: Charleston R1: Amanmuradova def. Stevenson 6/2 6/4

I sure gotta say it.....STOP GIVING STEVENSON WILDCARDS!!!!!! Seriously!!!! She is wayyyy past her prime, and obviously not getting any better....Why not give these wildcards out to the young hopefuls, who could thrive on these experiences and grow from them!! Not waste every chance, like Alex does......
*annoyed*

Did Akgul perform well on clay last year? Agree with TrojanStallion on giving wildcards to Alexandra.

Nice work, Akgul!
I hope this will be the start of a big turnaround for her 2009 season.

And she's had exactly one top 100 win since Roland Garros Akgul really needs to pull it together. She's defending a ton of points during the clay court swing and could fall to around #180 or #190 in the rankings by the end of it if she doesn't start stringing together some swings.

Alex, on the other hand, simply needs to retire. This was just about the best first round draw she could have gotten and she lost easily. She'll probably find a way to pull a Wimbledon wildcard though off of some "10th anniversary of her semifinal" bullshit.

I'm sad that Dr. J's newfound influence on her life hasn't appeared to help her in tennis at all.

Then again, I never really expected it to... but still.

Oh geez. I actually liked this draw for Alex. This is clay, so I am not surprised. However, this result seems to happen on every surfaces, so

This is pathetic from Alex. She was up 4-2 and had a GP for 5-2, just horrible.
