Can Alicia do it?

Beat Lindsay, I mean. Let's take this one step at a time

In their last meeting (Filderstadt 2004) Alicia lost 6-1 6-0, an awful loss. But that came when Lindsay was on an absolute roll (and the tournament where she regained the #1 spot?).

This time, Alicia comes into the match full of confidence, having made the QF's of a slam for the first time (and her home GS, no less) and having beaten Venus Williams to get there.

How would Molik go about beating her? Against Venus, Molik showed massively improved athleticism compared to this time last few years. She also showed that she was quite adept at moving Venus (an excellent mover) around the court. This may be harder for Lindsay to handle. I think this will be the key to how Alicia performs, as well as (of course) her serve.

Lindsay has experience, and the #1 ranking on her side. We all know that on her day she's almost unbeatable. She's cruised through to the semi's, hardly challenged except for a one-set hiccup against Pastikova (were she duly went on to win the 2nd and 3rd sets 2 and 2).

Who else thinks Alicia can cause a massive upset? I believe she can

Whoever wins this match will most probably be the favorite for the semifinals, facing either Schnyder or Dechy.

Go Alicia!

After Myskina and Kuznetsova winning slams it's possible mates.

Anyone else get the feeling this will be the biggest match of Alicia's career?

Definantly, I really think she can topple Davenport and she has been playing excellent tennis.

I doubt it, but if she serves really well anything is really possible.

I actually think she has a chance!
She needs to be smart, cuz Lindsay will play on her backhand, and Alicia just need to practice that.. I hope she reaches semifinals I'll be supporting her

maria won wimbledon before she was in the top ten. alcia can most definitely do it. But she will need to back up her victory against venus which sometimes can be a bit tricky, there is so much excitement in the news about that win. It has the air of a final and emeotionally alicia is gonna need alot more in store when she comes up against lindsay.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

I think Alicia has a good shot against Lindsay, specially if She can get Her first serve %s up, I had to laugh at the comms. they did admit They were totally biased, they were using Hawkeye for evidence of line calls and when a call went in Alicias favour and Hawkeye showed the call wrong They said that was the one%(or whatever %) that Hawkeye was wrong

Alicia has a chance, she has a huge chance. She is full of confidence, and is playing such good tennis LIke people have said Davenport hasn't really been tested yet, so here it is, I think alicia is better prepared...shes taken it up a notch each time, and will continue to do so. Lindsay might not be expecting whta alicia gives her. ALicia beat venus even when her serve was down, which i don't think will happen again. So with her serve back on track she ahs a great chance. GO ALICIA

GO ALICIA MOLIK

Go Alicia. I'm thinking right now that she has the ability to win that trophy- i hope this match against Lindsay will be better than serena and maria's wins.
