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

QF: (1)Olivia Rogowska (AUS) d. Alexandra Stevenson (USA) 46 76(5) 75

so close. but it's good to see she's not retiring again in a close match and that she can keep up with someone ranked close to the top 100. good signs lexy, keep it up!

This is the part I disagree with. We saw her results when she was fit and playing well (SF at Wimby, etc) and beat a number of good players. She has not played top 50 tennis in years. There is some explanation for her rankings fall, perhaps it's mental and/or physical, but she has done little to correct her situation because her ranking has been in the 200s-400s for the better part of 10 years. I don't think it's unfairly critical to say that she isn't giving her best.

I think you're just looking at the rankings and automatically assuming without knowing what is happening behind the scenes.

Alex was the first woman to get 57 aces during her Wimby run to SF in '99. While her 1st serve was clocked at 125 mph, it was her 2nd serve, around 105-115 that was second to none between 1999-2004. She was ranked in the top 20 in 2002. Alex's dropping declined after she injured her right shoulder at Wimby in 2003. She tried strength condition but that could not remedy the tear. In 2004, she had a doctor do a Type II labral repair. After doing an additional 18 month strength conditioning, in 2006 she began a baseball pitcher-type rehabilitation to gain muscle endurance in her shoulder. This type of rehab program limited her play and caused her to withdraw early in a tournament. She probably has withdrew in over 40 tournaments. Although many tennis players retire after being plagued by injuries, Alex isn't giving up. As long as she has the desire to compete, it isn't really anybody's business but her own to say when she is finished or not. Everybody has their own reasons to play or to retire. There are no rules set in stone that everyone must follow.

I'm not saying she should retire, but the fact that she withdraws from so many tournaments makes it clear her fitness level is not where it needs to be. It's not a matter of being injury prone; rather than going to all these tournaments and losing in R1 or R2 perhaps she should take 6 months off to improve her conditioning and heal her nagging injuries. Is her goal to be a player ranked in the 200s-300s? If so, then she should keep doing what she's doing. If she wants to be top 100 or top 50 she needs to change something because whatever she has been doing the last 10 years isn't getting her there. Can we at least agree on that?

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

i always support lexy, but i think so, too. she could be much better, but it's been clear over last years that her fitness level seems to be one of the main reasons for her not to be able to climb higher in the rankings again. and she never was the fittest on tour and now it is even more important. it would be helpful for her to do a build up fitness training, but it's her live, her decision and i think with over 30 years, she is experienced enough to make her own decisions, and if she wants to keep playing like this, then she should do it. we can only wait and see what happens and support her as long as she wants to keep playing and be happy about the better reults

btw, she's up to no. 383 this week. gl lexy, keep it up and maybe you can really get fitter again. we'll see.

Alexandra is still 1st in qualifying in Japan.
After Japan, she is on the entry list for 25k Taipei. She is 20th in qualifying.

GL!

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

i wondered why lexy is going to japan to play some 25k's but now i found out. she plays qualies in Osaka this weekend. go lexy, get some more good matches!

QR1: Stevenson vs. Gavrilova

possible QR2 against (3)Bouchard, possible QR3 against (7)Kumkhum. all beatable. hope lexy wins her QR1. but gavrilova is near her CHR, so could be tough.

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

If she gets past Gavrilova, I would imagine she will play Bouchard. Will be tough, but Lexy is more experienced so maybe that can get her through!
