Abierto Mexicano de Tenis is a tier 3 and stevenson just played a tier 3 in memphis. but they don't play these sort of tournaments often enough.
i think until they win one or 2 titles they should player these loer tier tournaments because for players like anna k and elena d i think it is confidence that stops them from beating the top 10er's.
stevenson should be playing them all the time until she gets really consistent. until i see a string of 5 or 6 tournaments where she makes it to the semis or higher (in tier 4 and 5's - competition is easier) then i won't think that she is a top player.
