Rita Grande (ITA) v. Qualifier

Go Molik!

Slightly edgy about her probable 4th round match though... but hopeful! She's in top form!

I don't think it's a great draw for her at all! Serena in the fourth!? Not good! I was hoping for a good quarter of the draw but if she plays Serena in the round of 16 (which is highly likely!) then as long as she stays positive and keeps her confidence level up where it has been then I would put money on her!
Love you Alicia! Good Luck!

Lee-Waters will beat Williams in R2 :D

i agree serena in the R16 isnt great, but it could have been worst
she only has r32 points to defend here so just getting to the R16 will be a good achievement, then who knows

In her form ANYTHING !! i possible

CMON ALICIA !!!

Hopefully Serena will be out sooner because of her knee injury, but it would be great to see Molik vs Serena and Molik beating her fair and square.

kell
Aug 28th, 2004, 04:58 AM
Best of luck to her!

I'm not too worried about the Serena encounter.

As has been basically said: Alicia is in the form of her life. Serena is not.

Awesome game Alicia!

I just watched it... on tape of course I coudnt watch it at 3am on a work night! :p

Excellent job. Gee, she's got a great game.

Mr_Molik
Aug 31st, 2004, 11:20 AM
i realised how beautiful her forehand she has a very simple take back but a very good shoulder rotation and she gets great movement and power on it
did anyone else notice how just about all of her aces were down the tee on the deuce side? its good to see she has that one firing but maybe she should work on her other serves next match

Lemonskin.
Aug 31st, 2004, 12:25 PM
I loved some of her backhand strokes... so effortless...

...and her kick-serve... jeebas, it just runs right away from her opponent!

Alicia and Todd not even seeded in Mixed doubles :o

Sep 1st, 2004, 01:36 AM
That's funny. Todd and Alicia's combined rank is better than Navratilova/Paes. I think Alicia's 2003 doubles points from New Haven dropped off a week earlier because of the Olympics and that is why they aren't seeded. Don't think it will stop them from going all the way though!

I fell asleep half an hour before she started. What happened? Did Alicia play badly, or did Daniela magically find this "A game" all her fans talk about but we havent seen for so long? I hinestly couldnt believe it when I heard she lost.

Mateo Mathieu
Sep 1st, 2004, 10:31 PM
Like I said before, she should change for aggresive games not tooo defensive like she do it all the time. I'm really disappointed because I expected from her too! :(

dare i say the pressure to win !! got to her . . oh well

Mr_Molik
Sep 2nd, 2004, 01:48 AM
:bigcry: i have to say i felt bad about the draw
i had the same feeling about this match as i did tanasugarn at wimbledon, i didnt think shed be able to handle the pressure of being expected to win against a medium level opponent

Mr_Molik
Sep 2nd, 2004, 01:50 AM
does anyone else think she should become an all out serve volleyer??
from the two games i saw, daniela was exposing her backhand and poor movement and there wasnt much alicia could do
alicia seems to have backed away from the net alot recently, i remember she used to come in way more, today she only came in 6 times to hantuchovas 20 :eek:

The stats dont look too ugly... i definately agree that shhe needs to come to the net more

Aussie_chic
Sep 2nd, 2004, 10:37 AM
:crying2: Awwwwwwwwwwwww. :crying2:
I really thought she could do it! If it's becoz of presure she's really got to put something in place to stop it!

When looking at stats the one crucial thing IMO is serve%. First serve @ 52% is not good enough. Alicia usually always win when she's serving well. It's her weapon- sooo important. She's gonna have to work to get that up. Her HUGE serve is her weapon. If she doesnt capitalise from it where will she get her valuable free points??

Oh well. Ur still a champ Alicia! I think she'll be pretty fired to come back and prove she deserves her rank. She takes losses well! :bounce:

Lemonskin.
Sep 2nd, 2004, 01:15 PM
Net points hurt her too.

She should play mixed doubles with Hewitt :D
