MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

To continue with our series on players who’ve fallen off the radar but haven’t given up, we present Alexa Glatch.

Now 29, the American got to the top 100 in singles and doubles in … 2009.

In 2005, she reached the singles and doubles finals at the US Open juniors.

Since then, a car accident. Four hip surgeries. Two knee surgeries.

Spotted at Wimbledon last year, Glatch told Tennis.Life she hoped to be back in the fall. It took six more months.

A wild card at a $25K in Osprey, Fla. this week, she beat world No. 13 junior Hurricane Tyra Black Tuesday.
