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

If she can adjust to the grass and find her game, it might be worth it.

But her last overseas adventures on grass did not pay-off very well. It's a long way to travel to lose in qualifying, and she's far from guaranteed to make even the qualifying event in Surbiton, the next grass stop on the Brit ITF Tour.

I'm amazed she didn't grab mother, pile into the car, and head for the $10K in Buffalo, NY.

Her ranking, along with all her recent results, shows that she is currently a $10K-level player.

She could certainly be better than that, but she needs some confidence. She needs to get some successive wins in a main draw, somewhere --even, sad as it may be, in a $10K. If that's what it takes.

Spend thousands to go to Eastbourne and lose in the first qually round, make €250, then have to fly back?

Whatever floats her boat, but a smart plan would be to set a goal of actually WINNING a $10K event. Go to these events, get some confidence via wins that are at her current level, and then build on it.

Seriously: she's not far off from getting that Gail Falkenberg "old lady smell" ... but in Gail's case at least it makes sense.

Shuffle off to Buffalo, Sexy! Ask for a wild card! Win some main draw matches. You need them.

Ianchuk d. Stevenson 6-4 4-6 7-6(3)

Stevenson led 3-0 in the final set.

Tough loss. She blitzed Ianchuk 1 and 3 last year on this surface in Dothan.

Their stats for this match were almost identical, with Stevenson winning 94 points and Ianchuk winning 95.

God Bless Alex and long may she flail.

She's 35.

Her Wimbledon "run" occurred in a previous *century.*

She is indeed now ranked 641 ... which is ... speaks for itself. Speaks volumes.

It's lovely that she won three matches and qualified for this $50K event.

And her "journey" will keep getting better.

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

Darn, this was a great opportunity given she drew another qualifier.

It's my fault for not going. (Forecast was ugly and didn't want to drive 2 1/2 hours if it were to be a washout).

Btw Alex is dropped to 641 now. She doesn't have much of anything to defend though. Good luck in Indian Harbour, I suppose.

Wow now she's suddenly winning matches on clay! I wasn't able to make it today, but definitely going to watch her play in the main draw tomorrow! Yes, pics and possibly even video will be taken tomorrow

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

congrats alex. i didn't expect her to be able to win another close one, especially not such a hard fought three setter. one of them took a MTO at the end of the third set. i hope it wasn't lexy and she is fit enough to play her first round match!

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

Woohoo. Lexy qualifies. First MD of the year!

Stevenson. Def Mckenzie 0-6 7-5 6-4

Hopefully avoids Cindy Burger in MD. all other Q spots aren't too bad.
