Molik 68% first serve wins to 56%, 14 forehand winners to 10, 8 backhand winners to 3, 8 volley winners to 1, 22 overall winners to 13, etc, etc. I think Molik probably overpowered her, especially on serve.

I agree. It also has the potential to earn her a lot more recognition (and sponsorship deals!)

Australians in general don't care about womens tennis at the moment. And until Alicia does more than just do well in low tier tourneys, they're gonna stay that way. If she gets even a bronze at the Olympics, she's gonna be branded a sporting hero and everyone's going to notice her. After all, there was about as much news coverage of her first round win at the Olympics as there was of her first tournament win in Hobart.

true that kicker would really trouble a one hander like raymond
but i disagree that she will bother alicia unless alicia is having an off day
obviously alicias serve is much better
alicias forehand is better
alicias backhand is more powerful, although probably not as consistent
pretty even at the net(maybe edge to raymond)
and pretty even physically
this is alicias match to win

Mr_Molik

Molik, 23, set up a quarter-final against Ai Sugiyama with what she described as her best serving performance in 18 months.

"It was a really good sign," Molik said after her win over Raymond. "I don't really have much to complain about from today's match.

"There's so many positives to take out of it." It was Molik's seventh successive win, having started the roll in Stockholm last week, and a second victory over Sugiyama in their second career meeting would advance her into a semi-final showdown with either Mauresmo or Russian fifth seed Svetlana Kuznetsova.

Molik beat Mauresmo on a hard court in San Diego three weeks ago and won't fear the world No.2 if they indeed clash again.

The 23-year-old South Australian is also still alive in the women's doubles after teaming with Rennae Stubbs for a 6-4 6-2 win against Colombians Fabiola Zuluago and Catalina Castano.

Great to see Alicia playing so well.

It does go back to Wendy as far as I know. Liz Smylie also made top 20 in 1988 (briefly) - excluding Hana and Dokic.

Tough match vs. Ai but there could be worse qtr-finals. The doubles is no walkover either!

Alicia's match is the 3rd match in the session starting at 1700 local.
Therefore the session starts at 2200 in Perth and 000 in Sydney.
So Alicia could possibly start around 3am Sydney time I suppose :eek:

sometimes im not sure what you expect azza . . . yes she didnt win . . but look how well she has done this week . . beating 3 players ranked higher then her

She still had a chance to win the bronze and that will be against Myskina and i reckon that is a much more winnable match against Myskina then it was against Mauresmo
