Red face Poor Alexandra!

Did anyone else see this in the Telegraph?!!!!


DFS Classic: Theft angers Stevenson
By Mark Hodgkinson (Filed: 13/06/2003)


Alexandra Stevenson, whose entire career has been low-rent soap-opera, yesterday announced from a Birmingham car park that, in a bizarre twist of logic, she would never return to the DFS Classic because she had valuables stolen from her hotel room.

The 22-year-old American, who in 1999 became the first woman to go from the Wimbledon qualifying draw through to the semi-finals, said she had been robbed on Wednesday at her Birmingham hotel while she ate dinner in the adjoining room.

"Normally after the French Open we come straight over to England for the grasscourt season, but this is a little too upsetting," said the world No 26, who alleged that passports, Ł400 in cash, credit cards and insurance documents were missing.

Samantha Stevenson suggested that the thief had targeted her daughter. "They also took our security badges. She was the only tennis player in the hotel. We weren't informed by the tournament that Birmingham is such a dangerous place," she said.

Alexandra, studying philosophy at the University of Colorado, was especially irritated about the loss of her laptop, which contains an essay on Descartes due in on Sunday. "That stuff is hard," she said. Stevenson, who lost in the second round on Wednesday, drove to Eastbourne yesterday.

West Midlands police confirmed last night that they had been called to the hotel and that a woman had been arrested for burglary.

Rocketta, you are crazy! ROFL! Alex, girl, you should always EMAIL yourself a copy of your assignment in case shit happens...

Do they not put shit in the hotel safe? I would never leave my laptop out like that. While she didn't deserve to have her stuff stolen, that was kind of dumb not to take safety precautions, especially when you're away from home. I hope she'll have better luck in Eastbourne, both on and off the court.

I feel genuinely sorry that she lost her stuff ... but if it wasn't even the official hotel, why take it out on the tournament? And didn't she grow up in New York? Isn't that more dangerous than Birmingham (eg the robber have guns!)?

I feel sorry for Alex a lot actually. Its a shame she's too old to be removed from her insane mother and placed with 1. a normal family and 2. a real coach.
