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

Well a nice effort from her. Certainly a better one than I expected. Having said that, it's yet another L and a close to her year. Really not sure what her game plan could be for next year or if she should even give it a go. According to her, this was the first year she was healthy since her shoulder injury over a decade ago and she has ended the year worse than she has the past few years(outside of the top 500). If she does continue in 2016, which we have no reason to expect her not to, she really has to do like what Patty Schnyder has done this year and strictly play $10k and $25ks. She has to win an event at this level before she can even consider playing a $50 or $100k. Honestly though she probably won't have much of a choice. It'll be tough for her to even get into qualifying of some of the $50k events.

She should probably ditch that useless coach she picked up this year. He might be even more delusional and more of a crutch than her mother is. I know I said before but I honestly don't understand how she has any financial resources to continue. sigh

Loses 6-1 in the third

Surprisingly good effort overall. Very impressive in the first two sets. A bit more belief and she could have won the opening set.

Down 1-4 in the third. There was a thread recently saying Jovanovski was 15-1 in three setters this year so maybe no surprise. At least no bagel.

Down double break 0-3 in the third. C'mon Alex.

Can't take the set on her first serving opportunity, she'll get another go though if she can't break.. Common Alex

She's really going for it on serve, has 10 DF. But that's mostly because she's really going for it, has at least 1 or 2 second serve aces.

She's had quite a few tough match ups this year, and a lot of those were pretty close.
Praying she can take this set and take the match though! She has her quirks, but since she's so dedicated, I can't help but pity her

She's now 5-2 up in the second

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

Her one handed backhand is very effective and aesthetically pleasing, and her first serve is a weapon, but her forehand is spraying UEs all over the place and her second serve really sucks. But overall the quality has been a lot higher than I expected. Just comes from BP down to maintain her break for 3-1 in the second now...

edit: just blows about a dozen BP chances to go 4-1 up, now 3-2. Still playing surprisingly well and competing in long rallies.

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

She's playing pretty well today and I just can't understand how she has been losing to so many scrubs lately playing like this
She should have won that first set Reminds me of her match against Mestach earlier this year
Well at least she's still fighting in the 2nd set

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

She's just lost the first set 7-6 (3), having been 3-1 up in the breaker. As the score suggests playing a lot better than one would expect, thus far anyway...

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

I'm happy she got a top seed, this is the level that she wants to be playing at, so let's she what she's got!!

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

Oh my goodness, not a good draw whatsoever. Though anyone would be tough for her in this draw considering her current form. I have zero expectations. I can't remember the last time she has played someone in the top 100.
