Viktoria Kutuzova def. Alexandra Stevenson (15), 6-3, 3-3 retired
I think you're right. I know Alex's shoulder problem is legit, but she wouldn't retire if she were up 6-3 3-3. She just didn't want to face the inevitable. If you look at Alex's record in 2001, she retired in so many matches, probably more than 1/2 the ones she was losing in. This is why I can't stand the girl...the cat said:Alex has had a shoulder problem. But congrats to Viktorya! I guess size didn't matter in this match. And twenty two year old Alex might have been traumatized at the prospect of losing to a 14 year old girl playing her second WTA Tour match.
