Stevenson and Mom were robbed in Birmingham

According to today's USA Today (6-13-03) Print version. The story is not online.

Former Wimbledon semifinalist Alexandra Stevenson and her mother say they lost more than $500 and other valuables, including a computer, in a hotel robbery at the Birmingham event. Stevenson, 22, and her mother, Samantha, said they believe the robbery took place after they returned to the hotel early Wednesday evening, after Stevenson was eliminated. They said wallets and credit cards were also taken. "Next year after the French Open, I think we will go back to San Diego," she said. "I don't think we will come here again.

That's unfortunate. I don't blame them for being upset.

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett

When I saw the title of this thread, I assumed it was some kind of melodramatic declaration about how Stevenson had been cheated out of a victory, a la Serena, or "The Fabulous 'Renal Blockage" as I like to call her, but it turns out to be a genuine robbery.

Bad luck, but I have to say that if you set foot in Birmingham you do run the risk of getting robbed by free-loading Brummies. Good job she wasn't playing in Liverpool, otherwise she'd never see hide nor hair of her courtesy car ever again.

I am worried, though, that this will give Stevenson yet another reason to be paranoid and mistrustful of others around her, as though she wasn't already. I'll bet she and her mum are already suspecting that the burglars were hired by her jealous rivals on the Tour, or by racial supremacists who want to force her out of the country.

Bad luck and sorry about the robbery, but pathetic response. Birmingham will probably be glad to see the back of them after that remark. I doubt Birmingham is any worse than most major cities around the world for crime - I suggest she skip Wimbledon because London can be dangerous, and New York too - so give the US Open a miss. Do us all a favour. Let some other players in who might actually make the second round.

Mirjana Lucic : Australian Open doubles champ and back in Top 100

Jelena Jankovic : US Open finalist 2008 and World No. 1

Jennifer Capriati : 3 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1

[center]Rafael Nadal : 10 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1 [/center]

What in the hell is so comical baout being robbed? I'm sure if any of you a-holes were robbed or if anyone close to you were robbed, you'd think twice about making fun of it. It doesn't matter who was robbed or victimized, it's nothing to make light of. So, to those who are guilty-----SCREW OFF!
