ok, stalking who? At the tournament in Memphis that I went to you could get right next to the players. They walk right by you. Also untill 2002 members of the club where the event is held used the same locker rooms as the ATP and WTA players but that was changed after 9-11.
I think maybe the Memphis fans were partly just glad to have Alex Steve and the ladies bc it was thier first year having a WTA event and Alex was the talk of the tournament and she got hugs and a lot of attention. She also got a Mercedes to drive around in.
