$25k Hammond, LA

Alex plays Soledad Esperon in the 1st round. I feel like she always draws her or Silva in qualifying or ITF events.

Anyway, happy that you are actually playing a $25k. Now lets see some wins!!

She needs to get her ass in gear and start winning matches quick, because after Charleston her ranking will go down.

Re: $25k Hammond, LA



How does she expect to play WTA level matches if she can't win ITF ones?
I think she needs to spend more time on the ITF circuit. She should go play ITF's in Europe, because the lists there aren't as strong.

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.

Re: $25k Hammond, LA

Well i'm sure she has zero confidence at the moment considering her only win was at the beginning of the year. It probably wouldn't even be a bad idea to play $10ks just to see if she can win SOME kind of event.

At some point, someone has to sit our girl down and say, "Alex, you're 28 years old and you're losing to never-will-bes in 25Ks. It's time to look for another line of work." I'm sure it cost her (or more likely, her father) more money in airfare and lodging than she earned for losing in the first round.
