This is a bad match IMO. Amelie is too passive, Alicia is dominating most of the points but wastes her chances with stupid errors and terrible net-play.

Might get a bit better now.

Momo!! :worship:

Fuck, Alicia is playing well though - except for maybe a bit of a stuffup in that last game. Some of her returns are like lasers. I expect she will have a very big year this year even if she loses this. I can hardly bear to watch when Momo is serving.

C'mon Momo, finish it off. :) This girl is dangerous. :eek:

Sorry Alicia fans, but I think she may lose this match. In both sets, she was up a break and couldn't consolidate the break. Making more unforced errors than winners doens't help either.

This was a great match. It turned on just a few points. Some people say Momo was off, but what I liked was her ability to make an ace or a sensational shot when under pressure, while Alicia was a bit more likely to make an error under pressure.

Alicia is going to learn a lot from this. Except for some vital points, she was Momo's match. I wouldn't be surprised to see her force her way deep into the top 20 this year, and continuing to challenge the top 10 players. Remember, she was even with Kimmie at a set all and the third set on serve when Kim got hurt in the Hopman Cup. She is really competing with the big girls.

Exactly.

As soon as Alicia gained a lead, she started making errors. She could so easily have won this. Nerves seemed to reduce her serving quality too, especially when she needed it most. I hope she will take the right lessons from this.

Amelie, though not at her best, was able to put in the big serves and thumping winners when she needed them. I don't think her form today is enough to take the tournament though.

So much for the Serena like serve comparison? Pam Shriver really sometimes should just really remain commentless when shes got no educated comments to make! Any profesional who has some foundational knowledge of tennis knows its bizarre to compare at this stage of the game Serenas Serve with Moliks, rather the other way around i mean, even I who am a casual tennis fanatic, rather fervent in my pursuit of following it throughout the season know that its pathetic to make such baseless comparisons. Not that Moliks serve is one to belittle however Hingis played her once and had absolutely no problem with it, on the other hand in 2 of her last three matches against Serena, Hingis found herself answerless at most at the mercy of a serena power return of a weak return by Hingis who herself wasnt a shabby returner.

:wavey: IMO....Molik's serve was off after a few games in the first set...due mainly to Amelie's groundies. It's a learning experience for Molik....she has the serve....to be a break up in each set will only make her a stronger player....#9 or so by the end of the year....few points to defend (cept a few low tier clay).

Very few players can force momo to the net like Alicia did....it was a wake-up call for Alicia.

Molik will be between 9-18 in the rankings at the end of this year (barring injury), she has the game and some greats behind her.

Please stay healthy Alicia....we need you:wavey:
