Re: AUS Open WC Playoff SF: Molik d. Mirkovic

The South Australian was below her best and made to work hard by her 16-year-old opponent, but sharpened up late in the match. Molik said she was confident with how her game was progressing.

“I feel like I’m setting myself up to play well, it’s just about physically doing it in that hour and a half, having my head right,” she said. “There’s no point doing all the hard work in the gym if you’re off-song mentally.

“I’ve been working hard on my fitness. I’m working on cutting out the errors and playing as solid as I can and attacking as quick as I can.”

While Molik said she’s ready for the Australian summer, she believes her serve still needs work.

“That’s one thing that let me down today, it definitely wasn’t good enough,” Molik said after recording a first serve percentage of 48. “I was definitely not content just with the win.”

The 25-year-old is on the comeback trail after a debilitating ear infection put her out of the game for much of last year and early this year. At the 2005 Australian Open Molik had a career-best Grand Slam showing when she reached the quarterfinals.

Now as the 2006 Open approaches Molik said she is ready to step up again.

“I’m as ready as I’ll ever be. I’m 110 per cent ready to go.”

In today’s other semifinal West Australian teenager Jessica Moore continued her brilliant run with a straight sets win over Hewson.

The 16-year-old, who won the recent Optus 18s National Championships, required just over two hours to complete the 6-4 6-3 win over her higher ranked opponent.

While Hewson served better, it was the 31-13 winners count in favour of Moore that made the difference.

Re: AUS Open WC Playoff SF: Molik d. Mirkovic 6-4 6-1

Well done Alicia. However I want Jessica to win the final for two reasons. First of all, Jess is a West Australian as I am and also Alicia will get a Wildcard anyway. Jess might but she also might not.

I wouldn't mind seeing Alicia win though.

But go Jess Moore!!
