Alicia vs (Q) Kostanic 1st Round



i guess it looks like a good draw for alicia, although we cant be too confident until the qualifiers are placed. and qualifiers can be dangerous.

martinez in the 2nd round looks like an interesting prospect though.

ALICIA

I agree, we can't get too excited until we see which of the qualifiers she does get.

Assuming she does get thru the first round, I think it is not unreasonable to say she has a good chance against Martinez.

Why is hell would u want Alicia playing against Christina - i no that having a 100% chance of aussie in 2nd round is good but rather see christina play someone else who's not an aussie and win

GO THE AUSSIE GIRLS


Alicia Molik~Nicole Pratt~Samantha Stosur~Christina Wheeler

Nicole Kriz~Monique Adamczak~Isabella Holland~Jessica Moore

Emily Hewson~Trudi Musgrave~Sophie Ferguson~Casey Dellacqua

agreed broncosven.

i want christina to qualify and then have both alicia and christina win through to the 2nd round.

Alicia looks to have a good draw so good luck to her

i also agree with broncosven. i want both to get through to the 2nd round and that can't happen if they play each other in the 1st round.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

Of all the qualifiers Alicia had to get Jelena Kostanic who has played really well this week. Oh well, it is still a winnable match.

Tough match indeed. On paper, Alicia really should win this match and I expect her to (but we know how crappy my predictions are, lol)

Jelena has had some excellent results on the clay post Wimbledon, and has moved up from 115 to the 70's in a matter of weeks. She is a fine player, I really enjoy watching her play when she is on song, as she has some great lefty strokes. She's got some matches behind her, has similar Grand Slam experience to Alicia (they're the same age), and won't be phased by this at all...definitely a danger match and Alicia is by no means a shoe in.

Still, if Alicia wants to be considered an up and coming contender in the women's game, these are the types of matches she must win. The one's that she is 'expected' to.

Considering these 2 are the same age, they probably played against or at least watched a bit of each other, at junior level and if im not mistaken, wasnt kostanic the number 1 junior?

Tough match, tough win - but that's been Alicia's way lately. Hopefully she can gut the next match out against Conchi. That style of play is the way to get a win against the Spaniard.

There's more to life than just being happy.
