There's loads of guys in this thread, Abigail deserves a forum -- Alexandra Stevenson has one, and there's like 3 posts in there.. If anyone else agrees with me, I'm happy to start a petition for one ?

Where will Abi be starting her year? Hopefully she'll play Mixed with Jim this year, at the Aus Open, and RG (so I can watch live )
Have you ever seen Abi play, B.E.?

Check your inboxes guys, I have pmed everyone who's posted in this thread: I want Abigail to have a forum, she clearly has lots of interest, whereas players like Stevenson etc. don't need their forums. Basically, there's a petition in the Bug/Error Reporting Forum, just sign it and hopefully we can get Abi one that she deserves !

Stevenson falls with a fight
By: WTN
Date: September 1, 2004, 4:24pm

The frustrations Alexandra Stevenson is experiencing in tennis are continuing. For Abigail Spears, the game's trials are just beginning.

Appearing in the main draw of the U.S. Open for the first time yesterday, Spears, of Valley Center, experienced the most wrenching of defeats, denied a possible first-round upset of Silvia Farina Elia by what she and the No. 19 seed agreed was a single shot.

The Italian woman brought it off when she was serving at 1-3 in the third set and was down a break point. On it, Spears, commanding the point, sliced a backhand volley into her opponent's forehand corner. Farina Elia sprinted across the baseline and, reaching the ball, spun back a heavily topspun forehand that found the court.

"You just go for it. You try," Farina Elia said following her 3-6, 6-2, 6-4 escape. "Sometimes, it goes well. I put all my energy into that shot."

Had Spears won this point, she would have held a 4-1 advantage with two breaks. As it was, she appeared disheartened. She surrendered the next eight points, and Farina Elia was able to close her out when she held at 5-4.

Stevenson, without a victory in six matches this season on the WTA Tour, had chances to achieve one yesterday while engaging Virginia Ruano Pascual of Spain, one of the tour's ranking doubles players. The San Diego player gained a 5-2 second-set lead and later held a set point with Ruano Pascual serving at 4-5, but Stevenson could not consolidate her advantages and the Spanish veteran advanced 6-4, 7-5.

The defeats of Spears and Stevenson came after the eliminations of Amber Liu and Conchita Martinez on Monday and left the San Diego area without a delegate in the women's competition.

Though Spears lost, she achieved a breakthrough as a singles player in this tournament, battling through qualifying to gain the main draw and departing with the $14,000 that the Open pays to first-round losers.

"I'm totally excited about my week," said Spears. "I couldn't sleep the night after I qualified."

She said she was nervous throughout her experience here. "But it was a good nervous, because I was so excited," said Spears.

Spears is a big hitter who controlled most of the points against Farina Elia and played with resolve. In the first set, to make this point, she had five service games. She was down break points in four of them. She held each time.

In the second set, however, Farina Elia's experience began to tell. With the dismissal of Martinez, also 32, on Monday, Farina Elia is the senior player in the women's field.

"She has improved a lot," the Milan native said of Spears. "She is very solid in the rallies, and she has a really good serve."

Stevenson's match was her first since April. Shoulder problems had been idling her, and they beset her again yesterday. She called for a trainer to massage her right shoulder and neck when she led 2-1 in the second set.

Serving for the set at 5-3, however, Stevenson double-faulted three times.

"No.5 seed Marion Bartoli also made an impressive start to the New Year, overwhelming American Abigail Spears, 60 61."

Poor Abi
