I hope Alex loses this, not only because I fucking hate her attitude and I'd love to see how she explains a loss like that, but perhaps that might be the final straw to get rid of that bitch mother Samantha and get a real coach who can get her tail in gear.
If she loses she probably will say she did not practice enough or something like that but I really can't see Alex losing to the 14 y o on hard courts. Alex hits more aces than anybody on tour consistently. She just needs to control her errors and lose some weight. She and Monica Seles are in the same boat.
i don't know if she will lose. but she seems to fight sometimes now when she does lose whereas a couple of years ago she ever fought but at least she tries sometimes. lina wasn't playing great and was feeling ill so the win might not be as big as we think. still their is quie a good chance that kutuzova could beat stevenson.
Alex beat in Stanford, and lost to Dokic, got injured, and rested a week. Now she's back playing an unknown ukranian.. I really think Alex has a good chance to win. I don't see Alex losing to a 14 year older girl too, but she's injured, and you don't know with her too... She's so inconsistent. One week she plays like a top 20 and in another like a top 200.
I think Viktoria has a good chance too. She played a match and is ready to play a not-in-form-injured Alex.. But I don't.
Hey! The 14 year old has nothing to lose. So why not go out and give it your all! Attitude is such an advantage, especially against a player like Alex. She likes to fold easily. I think that she'll probably lose. But you know what?! I don't really care!!
