alicia is a good player, mandula has great groundies very powerful. i really do think alicia needs to power-up on her groundies if she wants to compete with the top players because atm they just blow her off the court with power, maybe if she was one of the quicker players on the tour it wouldnt matter as much but alicia isnt all that fast.
i didnt see much of the match bewteen alicia and petra so i cant comment on what happened.
