Re: Alex Stevenson's Chat Thread. (!!!)

If anyone follows Alex on Instagram she's actually been posting a few pics this off season. She appears to be training quite hard- and has been training with an ironman athlete in one of her pics in a gym.

Interestingly - she hasn't entered ITF Midland the week after AO.. Instead she has priory 1 in $60,000 Burnie (Australia) just as she did last year. Will be interesting to see if she somehow comes here (Aus ). As it's the week after the AO, Burnie has a very very strong list. Doubt it'd be worth her trouble.

There is a run of 5-6 ITF tournaments in Australia in February/March. I hope she does come - one of the tournaments in March is only 15 minutes from me. I'd be there!!!

Umm what? Anyone found this longer, follow-up video?

She should be doing a lot more of this. I'd definitely go if she came to my area.

Sexy is in North Carolina teaching clinics for kids, apparently. (Very cool.)

She was interviewed by a local news outlet in Raleigh. The screen refers to her as a "Tennis Legend" ... 😑

And, of course, she is just "NOW making a comeback."

But what I really want to hear about is her "night out with Mariah Carey" and why the "secret to her success is from seeing a shaman."

Sexy never, ever disappoints.

(And she looks happy and chipper in the little video interview. Enjoy, Sexy Lexy fans!)

EDIT/UPDATE: Sexy is also teaching a series of adult tennis clinics at the Raleigh Racquet Club this month!

This is good news because it's obvious that she is willing to work in the capacity of a special guest teaching pro --a wise use of her time and talents at this stage in life. Good for her! Her presence will also likely be quite beneficial for the Raleigh Racquet Club. Fans and players in NC could go and have a lesson with Sexy! Glad to see her start making this kind of transition, in addition to playing ITF. Info below from the RRC site ... if any fans/players in the area get a chance to attend, let us know how the clinics go! 👍

Re: Alex Stevenson's Chat Thread. (!!!)

Mmm ... Sexy is in the alts at Dubai, but wayyyyyy down, so no entry there. She'll never get in.

Thing is: Sexy is a disaster. Her whole career, except for about 3 months in 20 yrs, has been a wreck topped with an asteroid impact.

Sexy needs to write and release her book NOW, while even a few aging morons (like me) actually remember her and might buy her scribblings.

Who paid for her month across England & Europe? For 5 ranking points? Who was so hanging on the hook?

The greatest story in crap-tennis would be the revelation about WHO is currently funding Alexandra Stevenson's lively and active sports career.

Ranked: 619

Events: 18

Age: 36 (in less than 2 weeks)

Things Can Only Get Better.

Poor Sexy. She really fought but couldn't get it, even though Vrljic opened every door imaginable after the first set. Virljic was BEGGING Sexy to win.

Almost a month in England and Europe, and only 5 or 6 points across three tournaments. She could've gotten twice that with a handful of qualifying-level wins in the States.

Oh well, hopefully she had a good time exploring new parts of England, France, and Italy.

Wonder if she'll "tour the Continent" next year 🤔

Man, this'll be a heartbreaker if Sexy loses it. Vrljic doesn't quite deserve to win this contest with such horrific chokes.

Unfortunately I couldn't find a stream either. Just checking the live scores. Alex appears to be fighting. Was down 0-40 a moment ago.
