Alicia is playing in the PPT Bangkok Open. It is a Tier III tournament played on a Hardcourt. The tournament runs from October 9 to October 15. Alicia did not play in this tournament last year so she has the opportunity to gain some much needed ranking points.
In the First Round, Alicia will face, would you believe it, Vania King. King defeated Alicia in straight sets at the US Open, but Alicia then gained revenge and beat her Guangzhou. King is ranked 80 in the world. It is possible for Alicia to make the Semi Finals because she could face Fourth Seed Lucie Safarova in the Second Round and Jelena Kostanic in the Quarter Finals who Alicia beat in straight sets last week in Tokyo.
