This really isn't a bad result against a player coming off three straight wins. If I was Alicia I'd feel very positive about this loss. Now she just needs to practice hard for the rest of the week and she'll be perfect for RG. Realistically, I think she can win a match or two with a good draw.
Paszek is no slouch and clay is not Alicia's surface, so I'd say she's only a couple of months away from top 30 tennis again. (At least )

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.
