Re: 50k Dothan
Yeah, it's yet another eye-roller performance from the "What-is-she-STILL-doing-here?" Stevenson.
Castano is even older than Stevenson is and still spanked her with a bagel. All of the obvious laughing aside, it is also a disturbing scenario. Alexandra Stevenson's continued presence on the tour, after the enduring and complete failure of this "comeback" is a disturbing thing ... especially given her age. She was always in frumpy physical shape, anyhow. She is not even remotely earning a living -- maybe a couple hundred bucks, at most, per tournament this year, on average. One can only conclude that the father is still chunnelling money to her, but I doubt that. He has his own financial worries, allegedly, and I think he would have the frankness to say, "Alexandra, I tried to help after our reunion. It is not even remotely going anywhere. You're approaching middle-age. You can't even qualify for the bush league events. I'm cutting you off to force you to get on with some other career that makes sense. Pro tennis is not your thing. You have failed for 7 straight years. For the love of God, get off the road, stop embarrassing yourself, move out of that mother's condo, and get out into the world before I have to let you live in the cellar at age 35, and I don't have room for you anyway!"
It's a scandal, really. What is she and the mother waiting for, at this point? A rainbow cascading from heaven with the words, "Alexandra, Get a JOB!" on it?
