Fame: Stevenson Aims for Gold On and Off the Court


Please join the above questionaire

The lively Alexandra Stevensonís favorite movie is

"Fame," the 1970s musical which chronicles the emotional travails of
fictional high school students at a New York drama and music institute. The film features a tremendous soundtrack, includes a moving track by Irene Cara,

"Out Here on My Own."

Thatís always been the case in tennis, where players are forced to deal with their own demons on court as their coaches, family members and partners must sit on the sidelines. For Stevenson -- not exactly a Rhodes Scholar in the strategy department -- this has been a frequent problem, but as she showed in her 6-3, 6-4 upset of number eight seed Nathalie Dechy at the State Farm Womenís Tennis Classic on Friday, she is more than capable of individual triumph when sheís focused.

She is learning to cut loose and use her strengths to her advantage: which is a high risk attack from the ground and a bludgeoning first serve.

In the second set, Stevenson held to 3-5 and held her first match point with Dechy serving, but missed a makeable crosscourt backhand passing shot.
