BIRMINGHAM, England -- Former Wimbledon semifinalist Mirjana Lucic of Croatia advanced to the second round of the Aegon Classic grass-court tournament on Monday, defeating American qualifier Alexandra Stevenson 6-3, 7-6 (7).
The 29-year-old Lucic made the semis at Wimbledon in 1999 as a promising 17-year-old, but was absent from the WTA tour for much of the last decade because of personal problems. After spending several years on the lower-tier ITF circuit, she is back in the top 100 for the first time since 2000.
