Anyone know why Alexandra Stevenson did not play in the Wimbledon qualies?
Was her ranking (#236) too low?
I see that she played both Birmingham and Nottingham qualies.
She actually qualified in Birmingham, losing a close one to Lucic in the first round of the main draw.

Yeah, that was too low, I guess the cut-off was around 220.

Oh dear :sad: And they didn't give a wc for the qualies to a former Wimbledon semifinalist? :o

She probably withdrew after not getting a MDWC

She'S directly into main draw, she is Top 10 you forgot? Oh wait... :tape:

Good point. Where's the respect? The Brits are usually good about that sort of thing.
Maybe the other poster is right about her withdrawing when she didn't get a main draw wildcard?

Venus and Serena hired someone else to drive them around this year. ;)
