Some good form last week from Alicia and I feel that Morigami will be under some big time Japanese pressure. I wish her all the best. Hope Alicia watched Casey's demolition of Bremond. Sophie Ferguson ditto. It would be nice for Alicia to gather some confidence on the road to Melbourne.
Good luck Alicia. It is sad to see that we have to question whether Molik can win this match. The old Alicia would have demolished this field and we would have been confident that she would beat Venus. As a fan it is hard to see what Alicia goes through week in and week out. I wonder how she feels about it all? If it was not for that rotten illness she would surely still be top 10.
