Congrats Amelie but she won't win this. You don't win a slam by playing passive.

Well done Amelie!
I got worried a few times, Alicia played some parts of the match great, she is becoming a dangerous player.

Must be so frustrating for Alicia fans. She was amazing most of the time, had so many chances and just played really dumb when she was leading.
Amelie had an off day.

Great way to win! She did it with a sensational shot again. Momo!

Alicia has become such a good player, though. Watch her climb the rankings this year. I've become a bit of a fan of her myself over the past few weeks.

Momo is going nowhere playing like this. Molik should have won She was the one who gave us an entertaining match. Too many silly errors at crucial times, though.

Molik led 2-1 in the 1st and 4-3 in the 2nd with a break ahead, and every time she had to hold and confirm the break those birds started flying around, breaking Molik's rythm. Did anyone notice that they showed up and screwed her head when Molik was up?

Alicia had a great chance to win.

Trouble was, whenever she got ahead she started getting indecisive and making silly errors, giving the break back to Amelie. Also she never served at her best, almost no Aces from her and a LOT of missed first serves. Since the serve is one of Alicia's biggest weapons, this was a handicap.

Amelie was only at 90%. But her big serve and her speed about the court put enough pressure on Alicia to gain Momo the win.

good experience for Alicia though. Hoping she will learn a lot from it.

Yes, Alicia will learn a lot from it.

Meanwhile, that trick of Momo's of telepathically controlling the local birdlife is going to make her a very dangerous player on outdoor courts this year.

Yeah, but not many tournaments are played near swamps. Justine might be formidable in Miami, though. The everglades are not all that far away.
