Another crap draw for Alicia..
Australian Open 1st Round:
Anastasia Myskina (6)
It really is annoying that though Alicia is playing well, it isn't reflected in her ranking because she keeps getting drawn against really tough players in the early rounds of tournaments. She's had Kuznetsova twice, Venus, Meghann and Davenport, all in early rounds in past months.
If Alicia had had average levels of difficulty in her draws, she would almost certainly have been seeded for RG. She missed it, and now gets Myskina in the first round.
I hope Alicia can pull through this one, but Anastasia is tough and will want revenge for the Fed Cup. I want to see Alicia seeded for Wimbledon.
