Molik to lend ear to advice
By Linda Pearce
October 28, 2005

ALICIA Molik will enlist public help in her career-threatening battle with the inner-ear virus vestibular neuronitis. Although the door on her tennis career may be closed for six to 12 months, the ailing Australian No. 1 remains open to suggestion from any source.

Molik arrived in Melbourne from Switzerland on Wednesday afternoon, a week after retiring from her aborted first-round match in Zurich. Her agent, Lisa Chaffey, said Molik would consult her Melbourne specialist and also was likely to travel to Sydney for further neurological advice.

Chaffey said public input would be welcomed in the search for a cure. Dr Mark Paine from the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital told The Age this week that up to 25 per cent of vestibular neuronitis sufferers never fully recovered.

"Alicia's open to hearing from anyone who's had a similar illness or similar symptoms " Chaffey said yesterday. "She wants to keep all options open "

With her ranking already having tumbled 10 places to 23rd in the past week, Molik has written off the Australian summer, which was to have included the Hopman Cup as a lead-in to the Australian Open.

Lleyton Hewitt remains an unlikely starter for next week's Paris Masters, from which world No. 1 Roger Federer and his pursuer, Rafael Nadal, have withdrawn.

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Poor Alicia! She is going to hear from an awful lot of cranks with this appeal.
Hope she somehow gets the one useful bit of advice that can help her, though. There's always a chance! Good luck, kid.

So does that mean that she might end up dealing with dizziness and stuff day in day out for the rest of her life?
What a terrible thought.
