so close. a shame they had to meet in R1. i'm sure lexy would have won her first round match had she drawn someone else...
in kimikos thread someone said lexy played REALLY well, she hit 17 aces and saved 5 match points, nearly all of them with winners. come on lexy, you can still play on a high level, now do it on a regular basis and not only every 6 month!
Alexandra really did play well. I was very impressed. And the overall quality of the match was much much better than I was expecting. Her backhand is beautiful and her forehand was quite nice as well. Her serve, just wow! Two thing however lost her the match. Her fitness/movement and absolutely horrendous net game. She came in behind bad shots and Kimiko passed almost at will. If Alexandra got her fitness right, she'd be well inside the top 100 right now, no question!
