Alicia will be playing in the tier III event in tokyo
there are no really top players playing at the event so alicia has a chance to do well.
here is her draw
1R: Jelena Kostanic
2R: Gisela Dulko
QTR: Anabel Medina Garrigues
SF: Ai Sugiyama
F: Marion Bartoli/ Maria Kirilenko
she has a 2-0 h2h against kostanic, one win on 03 and one in 04
alicia also holds solid records against AMG and Dulko so if she continues her guangzhou form she could do well here also.
go alicia find some form and hopefully some ranking points!!

It's going to be tough each and every match. It's tough to expect the best from Alicia this match but hopefully if she can contiune the form from last week than she can win a couple of matches.

Alicia has entered in the Japan Open which is a Tier III Tournament played on a Hard Court in Tokyo, Japan. Alicia will face Jelena Kostanic of Croatia in the First Round. Molik leads the H2H against Kostanic 2-0 with Alicia winning 7-6 6-3 at the US Open First Round 2003 (Hard) and 6-4 6-3 in the Semi Finals of Vienna 2004 (Clay). If Alicia wins, she will either face Jamea Jackson or 6th Seed Gisela Dulko.
I think Alicia can do well in this tournament and if she can play about 75% of the form that saw her reach World No.8 I think she can maybe even win the tournament because I don't see any players in the draw that Alicia cannot beat.
Good Luck Alicia

It would be nice to see Alicia have some solid results over the next couple of weeks and she might even break into the Top 100 if she does really really well.
By the way Ozfan44 are you from Western Australia because I am.

Good win Alicia, good to see the form carry through. Hopeffully you can carry it to next round because you can beat jackson if you do.
Oct 4th, 2006, 11:03 AM
and if she does manage to beat jackson
she'll probably have to play AMG in the Quarters (who she absolutely Owns!)
but we must first focus on the upcoming match

Good Luck Alicia, it will be tought but you can take this

Alicia might not be on for a while. Molik is up second on Court 4, but the first match is suspended by rain, as are all the other courts.
