Alexandra Stevenson "Sets Her Sights" on 2014 Australian Open

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:

http://www.noodls.com/viewNoodl/1689...iary-markworth

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!

Re: Alexandra Stevenson "Sets Her Sights" on 2014 Australian Open

I don't like to make fun of her...

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

No one is making fun. These are huge, big plans for The Sexy One! The article by the footballer tells the whole beautiful story of her inspiring comeback!

All of us together should join hands and sing hymns of gladness and hope.

Sexy proved last year that HARD WORK in 23 events pays off!

2013 will bring even more Stevenson greatness and I am in tears of joy to know she will be there to challenge for the Australian Open in 2014.

Does anyone hope she will stay to play Olympics in Rio in 2016!??

Go, Sexy Lexy! Your dreams will carry you to the top!

Sadly, I think her best chance to play in the Australian Open 2014 is to con Serena into doubles.

That was my first thought too.

Hlavackova, Strycova, Venus, Serena, Schiavone, Hradecka, Safarova, Cetkovska, Pliskova, Kasatkina, Putintseva, Ostapenko, Gasparyan
