Nobody else started a thread so I figured I would :D Anybody here with coverage as I'm afraid I'm stuck staring at a scoreboard :(

At the moment Daniela is leading Alicia 1-0, still on serve. Daniela saved a couple of break points in that game. Molik is currently serving at 30-30.

GO ALICIA!

Any predictions for Aus vs. Slovakia??

Hawk
Dec 31st, 2002, 02:28 AM
Well Alicia will have her hands full with Daniela...but I doubt Lleyton will have too much of a problem with Hrbaty..so it might come down to the mixed..Daniela is a great doubles player..but so was Vivi.. :)

angele87
Dec 31st, 2002, 02:29 AM
Alicia serving at *2-3

I'm thinking along the same lines as you Hawk... although I hope Alicia can surprise and beat Daniela because I don't want this tie to come down to the doubles :o

Hawk
Dec 31st, 2002, 02:30 AM
Yeah that's true..but I think Australia has a good chance in the doubles.

angele87
Dec 31st, 2002, 02:30 AM
Come on Alicia!! 30-0 *2-3

angele87
Dec 31st, 2002, 02:40 AM
No idea cyberix :confused: I'm not getting any coverage :mad: But I know that during Australia's last tie Kim was watching Alicia but not Lleyton :o I would dare say that the same is true for today... Lleyton is probably getting ready for his own match :)

angele87
Dec 31st, 2002, 03:22 AM
Perhaps Alicia wants to proove to a certain someone *cough* ;) that she deserves to play in the Hopman Cup :D

Hawk
Dec 31st, 2002, 03:24 AM
Yeah I agree Alicia is out to prove she should be here..but still..Dani is a top ten player, that just got smoked by a lower ranked player.

AUSBOY
Dec 31st, 2002, 03:27 AM
Alicia played simply awesome!

7 aces!

She lost only 5 points on serve in the 1st set.

She had 12 break points on Hantuchova's serve and took 3 of these.

She never lost her service, saved the only two break points Daniela had!

She played very solid from the ground often forcing Daniela into backhand errors

Full credit to Alicia, Her first top ten scalp! And first of many hopefully!!!!!

She played like a top 15 player today!!!!!!

lin
Dec 31st, 2002, 03:28 AM

but congrats Alicia, she plays very well today :)

Hawk
Dec 31st, 2002, 03:43 AM
She's already taken out Farina-Elia and Hantuchova..I think she can take Bedanova...Serena is another story though..

This is a great tournament for her no matter what happens from here. :D Amazing play Alicia!
