Clay is by faaaar Alicia's worst surface

Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-
kalbsfleisch-mittler-aucher von Hautkopft of Ulm?

I think Alicia - she can perform well on clay (Sarasota 03 final; Budapest final 03 etc.) and there isn't much competetion.

I dont think Alicia will win, she lost to Casey a lot lately, including in Fed Cup practice and on grass, so she should do even worse on clay.
I think it will be Ferguson, as shes getting a lot of clay matches in Europe now. Pratty has a chance too.

Casey def Alicia twice in the last three weeks. Alicia is gaining ground fast but is still a long way from her best.

Clay though is the surface that will exploit rustiness more than any other surface and Alicia's consistency and ability to stay in long rallies without making an unforced error isnt as good right now as the other three players.

Where Alicia wins over the other three is her serve, if she can get a high percentage in and keep holding serve then she's a chance, otherwise Dellacqua and Pratt should get passed her, depending who plays who!
