Re: Which Aussie is the better player, Alicia Molik or Samantha Stosur?

I think Molik was playing a lot better tennis when she was at her peak than Sam is now...


Molik in Late 2004/2005 Pre-Illness was beating everyone and playing awesome tennis... Such a shame she got sick when she did, because she had so much confidence back then...


I just don't think Sam is of that level yet...

Molik at her peak easily. Heck Alicia had to win 3 titles (Tier 1, 2 and 3), an Olympic bronze and slam QF just to get to the top 10!

Re: Which Aussie is the better player, Alicia Molik or Samantha Stosur?

Peak Molik is the better player undoubtedly, Sam has had a great last 12months but theres been bad loses there and bad runs.. Alicia at her peak was more consistent and had a better game! Please let them both stay in form and have 2 aussie women in top 10 this time next year

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

Re: Which Aussie is the better player, Alicia Molik or Samantha Stosur?

Peak Molik, but I think Stosur has the tools to be top 5.
Nobody but Serena can take over a match with her serve like Sam does.
She beat Zvonareva 4 times in a row. If she can play steady behind that serve, she is very dangerous.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Stosur is a ballbasher with no plan B,the way she folded against Jankovic was just puzzling.

Molik for sure, though neither of them are great. BTW Assies, do they not teach women in Australia how to hit a back hand. Both their serves and forehands are good, but their backhands are rudimentary at best.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

Comapring Sam now to Alicia back in 04/05... Alicia is the better player.
With Sam, she can play INCREDIBLE but you just never know what side of her will turn up each day.
Whereas had Alicia not got that injury, I have no doubt she would have come very close to winning a few slams... she was playing insane tennis back then.

Probably Alicia in her peak, she was amazing and much more consistent. That injury was just

Sam can also be amazing but not as often. Shes way too inconsistent, she can gave some incredible wins then some horribe losses, she really needs to fix that.

Alicia... she won Zurich and quite a few other great titles beating quality players.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

Re: Which Aussie is the better player, Alicia Molik or Samantha Stosur?

Molik at her peak for sure. In that fallseason she won an olympic medal(beating myskina,dementieva),a tier1(beating sharapova+former top10's schnyder, zvonareva, petrova), reach AO QF (beating venus williams, losing to davenport 7-9 in the third) + some other great wins like against mauresmo.

All-Time-Great
Justine Henin

Elena, thank you for all the joy you gave me, you will always remain in my mind.
