I'm glad to see that the WC is for qualifying and not for the main draw. But Alex should start out by playing some Challengers and try to work her way back in. Maybe she will do that; we'll have to wait and see. But her Gold Exempt days are over, so she isn't going to be getting all those WCs that she used to get. At the end of the day, she might not have any choice but to enter Challengers if she wants to play.

I agree, Janie. Though we both know that if "someone else who's also never won a title" returned, they'd give Her Skankiness a MD WC if she wanted one, Gold Exempt or not. (That status entitles one to unlimited WC's, but not having it doesn't prevent tournaments from err, "whoring out" to annabody they want, ;) except where the AER is involved).

I see how it is. :p

I saw her on a challenger list. She was MDO only though, and considering she's ranked in the 400s and it was like a $50K, she obviously didn't plan on actually entering the event.

Ah! Well at least the Challenger idea has entered her head. But it doesn't look like she's quite ready to face the reality of her situation yet, signing up as MDO.
The Tour made no concessions to Kim or Justine when they returned from lengthy breaks; they certainly aren't going to make an exception for AS. How does she expect to get her ranking back up? 3 WCs are unlikely to do it for her. Well, we shall see.

What I really hope for Alex is that she is finally ready to act like a young adult rather than an overgrown pre-teen! Maybe the break helped her grow up; rehab after surgery is no joke. I hope so.

people it has been a few years and she may have matured. Give her a break already. She has been injured.

Maybe if she doesn't eat between now and then, she might be in shape for the match. :tape:
