Stevenson’s Mom in Trouble With WTA
BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) _ One day after Alexandra Stevenson was beaten in the DFS Classic, her outspoken mother was in trouble with the WTA Friday.
Samantha Stevenson took exception to a WTA display of newspaper reports, most of which related to her daughter’s defeat by Nathalie Tauziat on Thursday.
Stevenson ripped down the articles _ an action which could lead to a WTA Tour reprimand for ``vandalizing club property.″
She had ruffled the WTA earlier in the tournament by asking a pianist to stop playing in a hospitality tent during her daughter’s second round win over Anne-Gaelle Sidot.
Mother and daughter left Birmingham after Stevenson withdrew from the doubles tournament Friday citing illness.
