16 seeds! I'm glad there are that many, she should be seeded on her current rank of 32. I guess it might drop to 34 or so after the French. I'm hoping she will improve on last years loss to Roberta Vinci!

Does anybody know who she is playing doubles with this year?

Magui Serna of coarse :)

I really Hope Sophie gets to go in i hope Wyyne Pakusya doesnt want it :)

Would luv to Sophie's game against 100 - 150 . . . . ever since Oz open where she lost 3 and 1 to Lee Waters

Would like to see if game has improved since then but how much aswell

Alicias Draw is bloddy Awsome!!!!! :eek:!

She really should be able to make the quarters. Then if she serves well, and volleys well, should be able to beat Sharapova. I don't think anyone else in the draw would be a huge challenge.

alicia is ranked 32 this week
she has no points to lose and will likely go far in this tourney
plus clijsters and maybe some others arent playing
so yea she should be seeded

I read today that Clijsters has withdrawn from Wimbledon. I would assume that the seedings for Wimbledon will be based on the rankings that come out next Monday, so Alicia is just about assured of a ranking regardless of how she goes in Birmingham, since she has no points to defend. I really think she can have a good tournament here. Just think, only she and Kuznetsova challenged Myskina at the French!

aussie_stars
Jun 8th, 2004, 11:42 AM
Alicia should do really well here i think. She was so unlucky at the French but has been playing well.

A seeding at wimbledon will make her very dangerous!

:banana: Good luck Alicia!

:wavey: Alicia has to be confident going into this match after the last time the 2 played...I think Molik will still win in 2 sets but I think they will be closer than we think. IMO of course :wavey: GL Alicia and Sam (nice gutsy win too):wavey:


Also I've been thinking about the weather in England...the Herald-Sun said it was like a heat wave...31 degrees...if it remains hot It's playing into the hands of Aussies I think IMO again. I know what I'm trying to say but my brain won't give me the right way to phrase it...ok I'll shuddup now...toodles:wavey:

Alicia's rank should go up to at least 29, even if she were to lose to Jankowitz. I hope she can hammer her though. Why the fuck is it on an outside court though? :bounce: :wavey:

BTW does anyone have any idea of how Alicia is now in the rankings?

OMG I would :hearts: LOOOVVVVVEEE :hearts: Alicia to win this.
Its funny but I've always wanted to c these two girls play each other. Not only because it proves to be gr8 tennis but because I think they r such contrasting characters. Alicia is such the Aussie laid back girl & soo casual & down 2 earth. Maria obviously has all this hype around her (media!!) and just seems v diff to me.
(and I'm not sayin thats a bad thing.) But nehow 4 some reason the match really interests me. WISH we could c it on TV.

Newayz I blabber to much. (u guyz will soon find out.) The point is:

GO ALICIA!!!!!!! :bounce: :kiss:

OH WELL

Congrats on Alicia for reaching quarters at least

skared
Jun 12th, 2004, 08:49 AM
It really seems like Alicia has had to play too many in form Russians this year!!!!

Alicia lost an unusually high number of points on her first serve. I think Sharapova was just playing really well. We should be happy that Alicia will be ranked 29 or 30 now and will be seeded for Wimbledon. She will be unlucky to lose before the third round and if we're lucky she'll get a soft player in the third round, then lots of points!

A final, then a good effort at the French, then quarters here. She really is playing like a top 20 player.

Mr_Molik
Jun 12th, 2004, 11:42 AM
out of the eight quarter finalists, i think sharapova is the best grasscourter and alicia is second. their match should have been the final
so again it was an unlucky draw. but if alicia keeps picking up points like she is then she will start being seeded higher and then she wont have to play these players til later in tournaments
