Alicia Molik will be at Top5 by the end of 2005

I have no doubt about it!!!!

She has the physique...
She has the serve... (You can say the best in today's womens game)
She has the forehand...
She has the movement...
She has the mental toughness... (What a fighter! All being shown at today's match against Lindsay Davenport!)

My Top5 picks at the end of 2005:
Lindsay Davenport
Serena Williams
Maria Sharapova
Alicia Molik
Amelie Mauresmo

HOT GUYS How come there are so many out there?

Her serve is great (she hit like 50 aces total at the Aussie...which is a slow surface). I agree with your list. Maybe Serena as #1.

Agreed, She will be in the top 5, provided there is no injuries *touch wood*!

She has the game, and its only improving, just sort out the backhand...and shes got it. I mean she did hit some great bh's today though

GO ALICIA MOLIK

Yep...Along with Sam Stosur, I think 2005 could be the Year of the Aussie

Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-

Very possible, such a great match today.

Her backhand really isn't that bad, its not a weapon, but its not a huge weakness.

The fruit series is suspended whilst Grachka (obatafan) mourns Saori's retirement.

It just lands a little short sometimes. It's not as bad as Elena's serve.

Molik def. has the potential to be top 5. From what I'm watching now,she's a heck of a fighter!!! Giving LD a run for her money....even if LD won(tape delay), I think Molik made a statement to the rest of the tour!!!

Venus and Serena.....2012 Grand Slam Champions!
The Greatest Ever Grand Slam Team, Does It Again!!!!

And It's Not Over Yet...Just Wait....Wait.

side note: I'm watching the match now and Alicia hit and ace to go up 8-7 smack on the middle of the line and they called it out...i hope no one tells her about that

VENUS. ANA, TAY TAY. NICOLE. LAURA. KONJUH. MADISON

SERENA. MUGU. VIKA. PETKO. CARO. TIMEA. SVETA. HEATHER. KAIA. TAMIRA. FLAVIA. GEORGI. COCO. LUCIE, SLOANE. PENG. SORANA. ALICIA. JAEDA. CICI. ANETT. DANKA. DONNA. FRANCOISE.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. SHENAY. DINARA. GISELA. SPREM.

hmm, Yes she can but I still see her in the top 6 to 10 because my top 5 list for year end 2005 are as follows.

1. Davenport
2. Sharapova
3. Henin
4. Serena
5. Clijsters

........................
6to10: Mauresmo,Myskina,Molik,Kutznetsova

I see a decline now for Capriati and Venus, I hope I'm wrong but I dont see any progress at all with these two from rescent performances.

Top 5 definitely possibility, but only with injuries at the top... if Serena, Venus, Henin-Hardenne, Clijsters, and Hingis were all healthy she wouldn't get much higher than where she is now.

if she can put more work on her backhand side...she's going to achieve even more...
Good luck Molik
