Good news, Alize defeated Olaru 6-2, 2-6, 6-2. She will play Oprandi in the QF's. Alize is 0-1 against her, losing last year to her in the finals of Saint Malo. Now would be a good time to avenge that loss!:)

not the best scoreline, but nice to see her reaching here the qfs.oprandi will be tougher opponent though

Alize's left thigh seems to have some strapping, but I don't notice much hindrance in her movement.

I did the scores in the livescore thread. You can see the progress there.

She lost 5 and 0. Thigh injury no doubt didn't help against the dropshot prone Oprandi. But she was generally not playing well enough.

Edit: I see it was actually a 3 set loss- I had no livescore and was only watching the livestream during the end of the second and then the third set, and I didn't quite realise a full set had been played before that.

she was up 7-6 3-0:help:

well done for the choke but this has become an habit with her.

As for the third set bagel, that's just prove how poor fighter she is in reality despite all the things she can say. She totally gave up and THIS is NOT the kind of thing that will get her back to a top50 level.
As for her injury, well too bad but very weird cause it is not like she was plying a LOT of matchs. This is the proof of a lack of good physical condition.

But well if you listen to her everything is ok, she can keep it up proudly!

:facepalm:

Ah, without a livescore (and just following on the livestream, catching it during the second set) I didn't realise it was a three set match.

I guess the momentum really swung when she lost that lead in the second set.

Sometimes these kinds of injuries are just a product of bad luck, in other cases it's poor training habits. Not sure which it is in this case, only Alize knows how much work she is putting in off court. Personally I have always thought that Alize trains very hard off court, in general. If you see her body, her abs etc it certainly looks that way. But with an injury like a thigh strain (which is probably what it is) she will need to take it easy for a couple of weeks I would think. Depends on how bad a strain it is.

Fighting in the last set... well. Her energy goes up and down. When she has no mental energy left she can't play. To really fight well you have to be able to summon mental energy at any stage of a match, even if you are tired.

omfg what a choke, similar to one against schiavone in ao a couple of years ago when leading 60 54 ended 60 57 06 :spit:

I didn't see the match, but I can imagine how it went by the score line. At this moment in her career she can go from playing decent and dictating play, to frustrated, yelling and mentally checking out in just a few points. I'm going to guess that her "injury" today was really her head not her thigh. She has a lot of points to defend next week, and it seems unlikely that she will.

Alizé withdraws from St Malo and Linz, and is stopped for 1 month till Moscow (strange choice for a return, since she will need points to be in OA main draw : why not a 50 000 k ?). Her hamstring is torn...

Depends on the grade of the injury.

My guess is that it is no more than grade 2 (slight tear) or even 1 (strained), since she was able to continue playing. Estimated recovery time should be 4-6 weeks for a grade 2 injury. Maybe 3 weeks if it's only grade 1. But she will require continued rehab beyond this point to prevent reinjury.

So... she may be able to play competitively by Moscow. But it might be pushing it.

yes and that's probably why she'll play Moscow to maintain a top100 ranking to be able to play slams, especially in AO where she has a 3rd round points to defend:help::tape:

Sombrerero loco
Sep 19th, 2011, 08:59 PM
wow...i wonder when she will be back to top 100, specially defending 30 points i think from hobart/auckland and 160 later at the AO...=(

Alizé Molik
Sep 23rd, 2011, 02:39 AM
I think she needs to drop out of the top 100 and be forced to play the lower level tournaments.

I think she needs to drop out of the top 100 and be forced to play the lower level tournaments.

if her ranking drops out of top100 she will be forced to play many more itf even if she doesnt like it.
And with the way she's actually playing, that's not worthy of a top100 player. Many up and comers are climbing the ranking, the tour wont wait for her to finally play good. If she doesnt do major work she'll fall far down and will be forgotten.

Oh and another info, according to her, she'll be back in 2 weeks and not 4 from her injury. Desperatly needs to gain points or :wavey: top100

Sombrerero loco
Sep 23rd, 2011, 02:18 PM
yeah because she wants to be into the AO MD as she defends 160 points there...

She won her first round of qualifying, 2 and 4.

However, she only got 44% of first serves in and only won 52% when she landed the first serve. Luckily for her, she won a lot of points on her second serve.

Hmm, I don't think subforums disappear so quickly. There are quite a few subforums without all that much activity. Alize's subforum gets posts every week, almost every day at times. But okay, I'll post here if you like. Alize is up an early break in the second set.

her actual ranking (96) doesnt lie. She doesnt have the level to beat a top20-25 player like Kuznetsova. Many tings lacking in her game right now. Logic result even if it's true you can NEVER know with sveta:help:

something you have to know, alize goes back to the french tennis federation and training in Paris, not Nice anymore. She'll be coached by Georges Goven (former golovin and mladenovic coach) along with Pauline Parmentier. dont think he'll give her back a strong level but at least she's trying something. Not thinking she'll get back to a consistent level with her actual staff at Nice cause she didnt.

she will have to train A LOT during the offseason cause her tennis is very POOR.

I was at the Nantes tournament all day, and it was quite a day !

The Cornet-Savchuk match : alize dominated fairly easily the first set (even though 6-0 don't quite reflect what I witnessed) then in the second Savchuk started to play a lot better and it was a lot closer, she almost won the 2nd set. alize played really well all along, We've seen wonderful points, her attitude in the second set was not the best but she managed to kill the match, it was close and physicaly it was hard on the end not sure she would have won if there went to a tird set.

She'll end it in the top 100 for sure
But she'll have to perform well in Australia if she does not want to drop out of it in 2012
