Congratulations Alicia!!! Shame about Amelie and the no. 1 spot, but Alicia played better!! Well done to both ladies, the tie break was fantastic!!

That was a surprise! I think Momo was a bit tired and Alicia was just too determined to win.

Nevermind Momo and way to go Alicia!!!

Now Daniela, please please please win!

beating venus and amelie already this year. terrific job alicia!and stretching lindsay to 9-7 at the Open. she's without a doubt becoming a contender for the title at any tourney she enters.

keep on going girl!

Playing brilliantly - even beat Momo's backhand. A big serving, consistent, all-court capable top 10 player who doesn't collapse when winning but plays better could do real damage to the rankings.

Francesca must have played well to take her close in 3 if she was playing like that yesterday.

Even the dumbest tournament won't be putting Alicia on court 2 much longer.......

Had a feeling Molik would win because Mauresmo does not deal with pressure well at all. The number 1 ranking was on the line this week and I knew Momo would succumb to the pressure. :o

of course! Well done Alicia :bounce: And I hope she wins it too! And it's not such a bad thing, she'll get a longer rest before IW, she would have played 3 weeks in a row, slow down Amélie if you want to keep up!

Unfortunate for Amelie. She played a great first set and squandered 4 set points in the 1st set tie-breaker which might have affected her in the second set, as she let up and played very passive. It's ok though. She's played alot of tennis in the last few weeks and now it's time to rest up a bit, regroup, and get ready for Indian Wells. Congrats to Alicia. She played a great match and was very aggressive! I hope she wins it! :)

Hi! I suddenly discovered British Eurosport were showing it 'live' but only when Amélie was 0/3 down in the second set. From what I saw Alicia was playing superbly well, and putting in some unreturnable serves; Amélie was still fighting hard but Alicia seemed to be 'on fire'. So disappointing as it would have been nice for Amélie to get back to No. 1 again, but maybe she was a little tired from all her matches the last three weeks. Last night I think she eventually finished at about 10.30pm and tonight they'd been hanging around for hours and the match eventually finished at 11pm local time. I think the tie-break probably took a lot out of her, but Alicia was playing so well, I guess given her current form was bound to get a win over Amélie again sometime, (Amélie's won the last two, in the Olympics and Paris!)

Congrats Alicia!! And I agree with JohnJohn, win the tournament now please!! :p

No big deal! Give Momo a break! The girl's played alot of tennis over the past few weeks! There will be plenty of time for her to reclaim the top spot. I'd rather her be in top form when she takes over the #1 so she can sustain it over a long period of time rather than to reclaim it when she's tired and only holding the ranking for a brief amount of time. I truly believe this time when she becomes #1, it'll be for a lot longer than 5 weeks! We as fans just gotta be patient and give her the time she needs. She knows very well what she needs to do to achieve it. No use always harping on it! :)

Amelie didn't choke.
She played great in the 1st set, in the 2nd she was really tired!

And Alicia played amazingly well! :worship:

Congrats to Alicia, who is fast turning into my second favourite player. :bounce: :worship: I really am happy for her. :D She obviously played an amazing match, and it's too bad the second set wasn't so great. I really hope she wins this now. :D Go Alicia! :bounce:

Amélie... :sad: But realistically, when I have a big race and do really well, then have another one like five days later, I suck. It's not that surprising she had a bit of a letdown after Anvers, and losing that tiebreak when you're already tired... I'd suck worse. She'll get #1 again (in a best-case scenario at Anvers :bounce: ) and she'll do very nicely at Indian Wells. :D

I think she can do it! :D

It's Dementieva who is #7, and she's not on-form ATM. And she'll have to defend big points as a finalsits at Miami and Roland Garros

It is less than you can think. She is defending just over 1000 points, and that is about 1/3 of her points that she has to earn over the course of more then three months ( which is more than 1/3 of remaining season ) and which includes 4 Tier 1 tournaments in which she has 0 points to defend. She may no defend her finalist points here or there, but she has tons of chances to compensate for that.

jonny84
Feb 25th, 2005, 10:30 PM
and remember Alicia has very little to defend now until Roland Garros (except Vienna fimal points) so she can make a big stretch up the rankings, now she will always be seeded to get to the QF of events at least - and by her current form it looks very very likely.

Yep, that's exactly what I was thinking too. Seems Momo still chokes when there's something big at stake. It's too bad because I think she could have at least 2 Slam wins if she stayed headstrong when it really matters.:(

But the final tomorrow should be interesting.......

WTF? I'm glad the other Amelie fans are taking this so well, but it seems to me to be terrible news for Amelie. As for me, it's just wrecked my entire day. Worse, my other favourite, Dani, also lost.

Congratulations to Alicia and Masha, both of whom I'd cheer for against most players. I won't take anything away from their wins, but some days I just hate tennis.

too bad Amelie, but well she has been playing for three weeks straight, and Alicia is such a fighter.
Get some rest now Momo, and come back strong at IW. Actually it doesn't bother me too much that Momo didn't gain the number 1 today, because chances are that it would have been very tough to keep it for a long time, especially with Lindsay lurking close.
I'd rather have Momo being number 1 for a long period of time, than her and Lindsay switching it back and forth with each other.
The clay season is starting soon, so hopefully Momo'll do well.

Thanxs Momo. You had the number one ranking in your grasp and yet when ur playing depended on it, you couldn't go and get it. Molik is playing good and the Doha courts are better for her game. Sharapova knows how to beat Molik now so it will be interesting to see if Molik can find a gameplan to change that.
