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

Alex is playing in Las Vegas qualifying tomorrow .. she's playing Nika Kukharchuk in the opening round. Can't see her qualifying, but if she's going to Id say she's in the best section to do so...

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

Alex didn't make the qualifying draw in Albuquerque, I do wonder if she'd go there and play doubles again with Taylor .. surely they'd be given a WC.

Bummer. Even so ... a final.

Alex cannot be the "star" she thinks she is (or is entitled to be) on a whole singles court, but I do believe she could at least have a chance to make inroads on a doubles court. I really do.

Amazingly, out of her and Taylor, Sexy is probably the more fit of the two.

This was a disappointing loss, but I hope the result leads her to perhaps try a doubles career, seeing as she's going to keep this singles charade going.

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

A doubles title win today would be a big moral victory for Sexy and also a HUGE "hint, hint": stop flailing away at a completely dead singles career --work your butt off and try to achieve something as a doubles specialist, if you're going to keep toiling out there.

Hope she and Taylor win today. Would be lovely.

Alex's only doubles title was way back in 2002, when she partnered Serena to win the WTA event in Leipzig!! Let's hope this is title number 2!!!!

Sexy has a wrap around her calf, but I'm wondering if the biggest problem might have been her fitness. If you have an iPhone or tablet to expand the image you can see. She is as stout/chubby as I have ever seen her. 😳 There won't be many wins of ANY level at that weight ... not on the cusp of age 36. Oh, Sexy. What goes on in that lovable little head of yours?

that's the pic on Twitter that I commented on yesterday asking them for the reason that Alex retired. They didn't respond.

I thought a few weeks ago in Canada that she was looking pretty good. I'm pretty sure I've read somewhere that she's Vegan and a few other things too. So I'm not sure how she puts on the weight.


Her injury mustn't be too bad.

Alex is in the doubles draw. Partnering Taylor Townsend!!! Taylor is a great doubles player. Hopefully they can do well!

And the good times just keep on ROLLIN'. 🍾

Time to start tabulating the RETs, again. She's nearing 70 "career" retirements, I think.

Man, she's gotta be living on Saltine crackers and Spam, by now.

Alex did retire. Was down 6-4 6-7 0-1.
Had a medical timeout at 6-4 3-2. And also at 5-5 in the second set.

She retired in her last match too around 4 weeks ago. Hope she didn't rush back to quickly if she had a bad Injury.
