Re: 50k Lexington

Quote:
"I would retire (Alexandra) in the middle of a match," her mom said.

In fact, Alexandra retired in 17 matches during the 2007 season. She and her mom would exchange signals during the course of a match to gauge her arm's stamina that day and call it quits when necessary.

Opposing players loved being drawn against her in hopes of a quick match. Tournament organizers hated seeing Stevenson's name in the draw, which limited many of her matches to a game here or a set there.

Love it or hate it, Stevenson's skills steadily returned, but the trade-off was an abysmal win-loss record.

"I told Alexandra, 'Forget your pride, forget who you should be beating and just go get your skill back,' " her mom said.

-----

Now 29, and feeling as close to 100 percent healthy as she's ever been, Stevenson said she knows Tuesday's win was but one more step in her long road to recovery.

Off the court, Alexandra Stevenson is penning a book about her life but, on the court, she has a few more chapters to write.

"I have a lot to accomplish; I want to win Grand Slams," Stevenson said. "My career got stopped short."

I love that she is still fighting. If she keeps working hard, I just always think no matter how unlikely a major comeback would be, you just never know. And one can only ever find out by trying.

Good Luck in the next rd Lexy!
Hope that shoulder is feeling good today.

Re: 50k Lexington

Alex
Not sure if she will win Grand Slams though

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.
