what chance do you give Alicia against Venus?

I know im getting excited but how long since we saw such solid results from Alicia ? too long do you give her much hope against Vee? she beat her in 2 tight sets at AO 05 but neither is that player anymore ... who do you guys think will win ?

Venus Williams
Sammy Stosur
Ana Ivanovic
Kimmy Clijsters
Martina Hingis
Jarmila Groth
Sharapova Dokic Wozniacki Delaqua Molik Kirilenko Dementieva Na Dani Kvitova

Re: what chance do you give Alicia against Venus?

well lish has only dropped 4 games so far in her matches so I think she will push Venus to two tight sets. but Venus has been playing well of late too so I will give her the edge over lish to win.

Re: what chance do you give Alicia against Venus?

Okay, I love Alicia but I love Venus even more, so I'm hoping for 3 sets so Molik's confidence can rise, but Vee is too good to lose.

If Alicia can find that magic again I could see her pushing Venus to 3 sets.

Alicia is the kind of person that you just want to see win...but Vee has been playing so well lately

No chance. Venus's going to show no mercy.

Re: what chance do you give Alicia against Venus?

Venus is still making a lot of errors competing against low-ranked players, even though she won the Korean event. If she and Alicia meet the match should go 3 sets with the outcome iffy for Venus. Venus has yet to play consistent tennis, minimizing her usual overload of errors.

Perhaps Alicia can win a set, but in the end Venus will be the winner

But it's great to see Alicia with some very good results again
