There's no explaining this lady.

Priority 1 is the $25,000 event in Spain. :/ She's 64th ALT. But it's still weird.

Maybe she's saving her pennies for another tour of $10Ks in England, seeing as she's got so many grass ITF titles. 🙄
I thought the other day maybe she was preparing to go back to England for the $50K Events like she did last year. But then I checked the ITF website and they've all been bumped up to $100,000 events. So she would be nowhere near the qualifying draw.

She needs to get out of the USA if she wants to win MD matches, which I believe she would know... her last win in a MD in the USA was August 2015 when she beat Hiroko Kuwata.

So I hope she can get over to Europe for the 10ks sometime.

I think she's trying to avoid the clay altogether...

Lots of medical timeouts ... even in the first set when it was even... maybe she's carrying a minor injury.

Oh well ... onto the clay now for Alex.

$25,000 Irapuato - Mexico

RD1: Alexandra Stevenson vs (1) Deniz Khazaniuk


Not the best draw obviously her opponent hasn't been in the best form though. So here's hoping.

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

Alex is playing this up coming week, I didn't look at the $25,000 Mexico list. And she's on it still as priory 3. Hard court tournament so she must be going to avoid the clay for as long as possible.

Hoping Alex can have a good week here. It's not a very strong tournament at all. Alex is the 11 highest ranked player.

Well that's too bad.

But Sexy has never enjoyed the rigors of clay.

And the Australian "tour" must've taken an enormous hit out of her resources. I don't think she even made $2000 for all the time she was there.

I mean, for crying out loud, just the cost of flights there and back alone. Even flying coach. Even flying as pets in the underbelly of the plane. For two people. It's madness!

The writing has been on the wall for quite a spell, as everyone knows. Maybe she's actually seeing it.

I wish she'd pivot toward writing that book she's been promising.

I'd smack-down $15 to read whatever concepts & words emerge from that head.

And everyone on the TF would do the same.

Her book would at least be a minor "hit," which is way more than her tennis has achieved in decades.

Hullo. Ranked in the mid-500s.

She needs to get that book out before people forget that she's even someone remotely connected to professional tennis.

Sexy, put out that book!

WE'RE WAITING ... and we love you and will buy it.
