Thumbs up Sydney 1R: Lucie Safarova def. Alicia Molik 7-6(2), 7-6(10)

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

First MD win since the US Open last year. Good time for it, too.

Henin in the next round. One of the few players to beat her in 2007...hopefully it happens again.

Great revenge for Hopman Cup, too.

Re: Sydney round 1: safarova def. molik 76 76

Alicia I'm so gutted, she held so may set point opportunties in that 2nd set with just a few returns going long & that one backhand she overhit.

ah well we must look at the positives, she played well & came close to taking the 2nd set. she just needs to be a bit more agressive on a few points and work on that backhand of hers still as she is mishitting a few.

well done to lucie though, she played well when she needed to & that 2nd serve ace was just too good. hopefully she can beat justine again

Re: Sydney round 1: safarova def. molik 76 76

what a chokefest that 2nd set tiebreak was, alicia has got to take your chance and that lucky let 2nd serve from lucie i think at about 9-8 to molik was Well Done Lucie but can't help but think that second set should of been alicia's and it's disappointing for her to waste a chance like that.

GO THE AUSSIES!

Re: Sydney round 1: safarova def. molik 76 76

Alicia plays so odd compared to other girls lol i dun no i think she should work on her rally skills and having a half decent backhand she plays good and then she plays like a club player literally meh no wonder she can lose to anyone and then beat anyone

Alicia you wasted sooooo many set points!!

It could have gone to a third if you could convert those big points.

She really needs to work on cutting down the UE and that backhand.

Well done Lucie
