Happy Birthday, Alexandra Stevenson! Today, December 15, you become a 33 year-old woman!
Interesting news-flash about Alexandra today, which is sure to excite her millions of global fans:
Alexandra is gearing-up to play the 2014 Australian Open!
St.Kilda Aussie footballers had a chance to hit with Alexandra in Boulder, Colorado during their training season.
Alexandra is training in Boulder for what is described as "a big campaign" for 2013.
Here's one excerpt from a player diary (St. Kilda's Markworth):
"Got a chance to hit a bit of tennis with former Wimbledon semifinalist Alexandra Stevenson ... Alexandra is making a comeback after a lay off with a shoulder injury and she has come to Boulder, much like us, to ramp up her training in pursuit of a big campaign ahead ... Alexandra says she has plans for the 2014 Australian Open."
Aren't other Sexy Lexy fans excited by this news!??!
It IS interesting, though, how Markworth was under the impression that Alexandra is "making a comeback after a lay-off with shoulder injury..."
Hmmm. Wasn't her "lay-off" in 2004 and didn't she launch her "comeback" in 2005? Is this intended to be a "9-Year Comeback"? Read the full diary piece (dated December 8, 2012) by following this link:
Just what is she telling these footballers about her "comeback"?
Checking Sexy's stats for 2012, she just wrapped-up a full season of 23 tournaments (almost all Challengers) and finished with a ranking of 470 in the world. She earned a little over $9,000 (US).
She turns 33 today, as mentioned (Happy Birthday again, Sexy!) and is entered in the qualifying for a Florida 25K in January. She's down at about 17th or 18th on the qualifying list for this Innisbrook 25K.
I know Sexy has a large contingent of devoted fans here. Given her results from a full-season 2012, does anyone have any predictions for this NEW 2013 season? How far can she get at the 2014 Australian Open? 4th Round? QFs? SO exciting that she has these great goals and is launching a comeback after a long lay-off from shoulder injury!
So inspiring to know she's happy, smiling, and ready to take tennis by STORM in 2013 (and 2014!) with a fresh comeback! Go Lexy! Top 10 is only 3 or 4 months away!
