B*tch is Back! :devil:

Lexy went up an early break 2-0 before Jelena came back and
won four straight games. Then, Lexy with her sexiness roared
back to win 3 straight games and come with two points atleast
three times on Jelena's serve to win the set at 6-4. But sadly
is wasn't to be, Jelena held, Lexy's serve faultered, and
Jelena served it out. Yet, Lexy made her earn it! :cool:

Lexy opened serve in the 2nd set and had atleast two gp's
before getting broken. In the next game she had two bp's
and missed those as well. Lexy kept fighting, but Jelena
just too tough and strolled the rest of the way.

Nonethless, a great great great tournament for Lexy!
And it was on clay! Definitely one to build on and
I truly hope she does! :)


Congrats Jelena, you almost succumbed to the sexiness,
but was able to escape, barely! :devil: ;) :yeah:

Lex impressed me in the first set. However, she just couldn't take her opportunities and play the big points well. She wasted several GP/BP in the second set.

Tough for Lexy...she was 2 points from winning that first set! But I guess it was because it was JJ's first match on clay. Lexy even had much better serve % in 2nd set but JJ is too good on clay. :hug:

Keep winning, babe! :kiss:

Excuse my ignorance - I am new on this board.

What was all the fuss about this match?
Why were people thinking Stevenson would beat Jankovic?
What does "Sexy Lexy" innuendo exactly refer to?

She's not like Dokic or Lucic. She does play week in and week out. :ras:

Nice try Alex! I honestly didn't expect you to make either set competitive and you did and on clay. I wonder if she'll be able to keep this up when the clay season ends.:hearts:

there is nothing to be ashamed about,she gave JJ a run for her money in the first set.Its obvious that she lost confidence after losing the first set.Its clear that she still has game all thats left is confidence and that will come back with playing at big events.It means she is doing something right when she can create such a buzz .

:sad: Alex

But eventhough your game pitterd out, and the 2nd set fizzled, still though a 7-5 set against Jankovic, is not at ALL dissapointing

.... Hell it's actually better than I thought you'd do! :tape:

But I'm def proud of all the hardwork you put in, and the fact that
you refused to give up, when seemingly all the stacks were against
you...Keep up!!! :yeah:

Looks like another typical JJ picnic match to me. 0-2, then 4-2, then 4-5, then 7-5 6-0 :lol: Hopefully she just needed a little time to find a groove and rolled with it from there.

I might not be so overly impressed with Alex's run here if not for the fact that it's on clay, traditionally a surface she never did at all well on. Her return to a normal level of play was imminent for years, let's see if she can sustain it. Well done, great start for her.

winning 5 games against jankovic is not super impressive. she isn't the type of player that is winning 6-1 6-1 all the time.

do you think i don't know that? elena's was a retirement so it's really not relevant to this conversation whatsoever, and vera wasn't impressive either. i said alex wasn't super impressive, and i'm sure vera and elena were horrific, sooo (?).

winning 5 games against jankovic is not super impressive. she isn't the type of player that is winning 6-1 6-1 all the time.

Even at her peak, Stevenson could barely beat the lowliest of scrubs on a claycourt. Today she's 2 points from getting a set off one of the best players in the world. 6-1 6-1 scores are actually pretty common for Jelena on clay in early rounds.

Again considering where Stevenson has been these past few years, winning 3 matches in a row on her worst surface against semi-decent opponents and giving a match to a top 5 player on her best surface is hugely impressive.

She'll be able to get into more events without having to qualify so much now.
