I am so glad for her. So good to see her upset the 4th seed and live up to the seeding for herself. Good job.
Now if only Svetlana can win the second in a tie break and thye have to play a third tie break, either her or amelie could be tired enough so we can sail our aussie aussie aussie oi oi oi into the final.
Congrats Alicia!

Alicia must have served real well. Ai had no break opportunity thruout the match.
I really underestimated Alicia having predicted Ai would win in two. I just have to congratulate Alicia with a hat off my head. Congrats Alicia and good luck in the semifinals.
Ai.. another disappointing loss.. if only you had won another match, we could have got TV coverage and seen you play... sad.. but you did well living up to your seeding and beating Sperm is really something. You still have a doubles match to play and although Martina and Lisa will be tough to beat, I have faith in you and Shinobu... Please win gold medals for us!

While this would help Alicia, i truly feel with the way Alicia is playing now and the amount of confidence she must have, she has a great shot at beating either of them anyway.

I mean, she recently beat Mauresmo, so she must be confident going into that match, and she's pretty much always had tough 3-set losses to Svetlana, so she'd know that it can go either way and it will be close!

Good Luck Alicia!!!!

I admit Alicia has a chance to win her next match. I don't see her beating Justine in the final but both Amelia and Sveta are beatable for her.

I guess then you are admiting that Molik doesn't have what it takes to beat Neither a MAURESMO or a KUZnetsova in shape....well at least you are honest

Beating amelie who is coming back from a few weeks layoff isn't the same as beating her in a semi even after both coming in with tournament wins. Alicia is playing very well but both amelie and svetalana are in a different league from her. She is gonna need all the help she can get to make the final! Yes so go Alica!:bounce:

Wasted oppurtunity Ai! This was your draw to get through and you didn't take advantage...especially after the good win over Sprem. Didn't seem like you played as well in this match.

Good luck in Doubles Ai!!! You will get the gold there!

I didn't; I am going by the stats, but a person who was providing live scores from the Mauresmo/Kuznetsova match said that Kuznetsova was playing very well (up until thr third set).

I saw part of the match and what I can say is that Kuznetsova was playing great with hard forehands and backhands. I was impressed by her play but I was also surprised to see that Momo managed to hang on especially in the first set. It proves once more that she is really an experienced top player. Otherwise she would not have won this one. Really congratulation to both players.

Good Golly, Miss Molik!

She didn't have one break point against her in the match!

Only 4 Aces, but she was still serving very well. 73% 1st serves in in the 1st set and Alicia won all but two points on them (89%). And she was 88% winning on 1st serve for the whole match.

She also had 20 winners to 6 for Ai (though still 39 UE :o )


Great performance. :bounce: Go on and win a medal!

I like Alicia and all but Ai is the Top Ten player (Though presently she is just 80 points or so outside the top ten)...Alicia isn't even inside the top twenty yet...Ai has seven singles titles and loads of experience and many BIG wins in her career. She's the one who lost a great oppurtunity to get through because she was and will almost always be the favorite against the likes of Alicia. It's nothing against Alicia but Ai was the seeded player and is the player that was expected and should have gotten through. ;) :)

Who would've thought Alicia is the lone Aussie tennis player left in the medal hunt, against the top 3 players in the world for a medal, I see no medals for Aussies in tennis, which means they will probably never catch China/US in total medal count after track and field:D

Well we thought Alicia was moving up early this year and here she is in an olympic SF with a chance of a medal and if I got it right a top 20 ranking on Monday. well done.

Now if she has been watching the australian swimmers or cyclists she might catch the same winning disease and beat Momo?

Unashamedly yes. Beating amelie who is coming back from a few weeks layoff isn't the same as beating her in a semi even after both coming in with tournament wins. Alicia is playing very well but both amelie and svetalana are in a different league from her. She is gonna need all the help she can get to make the final! Yes so go Alica!:bounce:

:rolleyes: the last 2 matches alicia has played svetlana it has been a tight three-setter and that was when alicia wasnt in form while svetlana was... secondly, now that mauresmo beat svetlana, it is anyone's match and alicia has a great chance of winning it... simply coz mauresmo's moonballs and slices dont effect her as much as it does other players, alicia has learned to become more aggressive and her serve can be more varied than mauresmo's...

I agree Alicia has a chance to win but she's far from being favorite in this game so come on to be so sure. Momo is not in the same league. And everybody know that all those matchups comparisons mean nothing at all.
