Stevenson makes splash and dash out of Wimbledon

from BBC website

LONDON, June 18 (AFP) - Former Wimbledon semi-finalist Alexandra Stevenson went down to a stormy defeat in the final qualifying round for this year's tournament on Thursday.
The American 23-year-old stormed off court kicking over two chairs and 'unintentionally' spraying water over the back of the Czech Republic's Eva Birnerova who had won their match 7-6 (9/7), 7-6 (7/4).
Birnerova, ranked 116 and playing her second qualifying tournament, complained about the behaviour of her opponent who made her name by reaching the semi-finals as a qualifier in 1999, the first woman to do so.
"She threw water at me and I will be reporting it to the referee," insisted the Czech girl.

:tape:

Stevenson :p

Stevenson must be a total headcase, IMO she is very talented, has a very good serve and good strokes and power... I've seen her also choking some matches away

bad for her, she could do better, that's for sure

WOW , she's like TOTTI in tennis. You know what I mean.
Totti is banned for 3 matches, while the former semifinalist is out of Wimbledon before it starts.
