Razanno def Stevenson 6-2,6-3 Proximus Diamond Games.

Well, I'm sick of Alexandra losing in the first round. She needs to drop mom and get a REAL coach, and she needs to drop the weight. She hanging out with my girls, but it ain't helping her game. Instead of sitting in the players box watching Serena's matches while playing with Venus's hair, she needs to find a way to win some matches on court.

I fear for the worst, and if she keeps this up she will be out of the top 50, because they girls are only getting better. I hope she is aware, and I wish her well.
:sad:

I thought Alex got in better shape during the off-season? Guess not...

My sentiments exactly. She is really starting to piss me off.

It's amazing how she beats tope players (Myskina, Hantuchova, Capriati, and Dokic) one week, and then a few weeks later she loses to (Chladkova, Razzano, and Majoli) who are all struggling or are not that great to begin with.

Alexandra are losing to these players 6-3 6-2, when she should be the one winning them 6-3 6-2.

She's truly getting on my nerves. If she keeps it DOWN like this, she will be out of the top 30 and top 40 in no time. It's a shame seeing her play like this, especialy when she has so much talent.

Harloo & Leena,

Unfortunately you're both right. I'm very disappointed in Alex's performance over the past year. She should be showing a lot more progress in her game. She's got a lot of potential but she really needs discipline, much better fitness, and SERIOUS coaching. Practice, practice, practice should be her only focus until she learns how to play consistently at a championship level. Right now she is simply embarassing herself.

she looked fitter this year to me than last year. I saw her in person at Sydney. She just didnt seem to have focus on the important points ...the results will come when she strings atleast a few decent wins.
