View Full Version : Alicia at Eastbourne

Jun 13th, 2004, 05:36 AM
grr for some shit reason alicia has to play quallies :rolleyes:
which is stupid cos her current ranking is high enough for her to get straight in easy
o well here is her draw:
Molik [1] vs Castano
Craybas vs Callens
Stosur vs Ruano Pascual
Perry vs Garbin [7]

Asagoe [2] vs Jugic-Salkic
Grande vs Black
WC-Baltacha vs WC-O'Donoghue
Nagyova vs Tanasugarn [8]

Pratt [3] vs Douchevina
Bartoli vs Jidkova
WC-Webley-Smith vs Cohen-Aloro
Harkleroad vs Zheng [6]

Likhovtseva [4] vs Granville
Navratilova [WC] vs Santangelo
Reeves vs Casanova
Beltrame vs Obata [5]

so alicia will have to beat castano, craybas and the winner of stosur/perry
to get into the main draw
good match practise, but if she loses to one of these girls her confidence will be shattered for wimby :scared:

here is the main draw:
Mauresmo (1) - bye
Janes (WC) - Q
Raymond - Martinez
Keovathong (WC) - Maleeva (8)

Sugiyama (3) - bye
Safina - Q
Hantuchova (WC) - Frazier
Sprem - Smashnova-Pistolesi (6)

Farina Elia (5) - Bovina
Sanchez Lorenzo - Serna
Dechy - Zuluaga
bye - Zvonereva (4)

Schiavone (7) - Q
Pisnik - Dokic
Vento-Kabchi - Q
bye - Kuznetsova (2)

:scared: alicia has 2 options- if she gets vento or janes, she should have an easy win then play one of the top 2 seeds in second round
or if she gets schiavone or safina, the first match is tougher but she has a better chance of going further
personally i hope she gets safina cos i think she can get to the semis and then have another shot at amelie

but maybe im getting too far ahead of myself she could lose to castano tonight :tape: :p

Jun 14th, 2004, 12:16 AM
oh well alicia wasted no time today-handed out 3 bagels!

final round vs perry

Jun 14th, 2004, 12:36 AM
FUUUUUUUUCK - I didn't realise she was playing, because I didn't see her on the entry list and she didn't play last year. A bit insulting she has to play qualies when she will be seeded next week. Ah well, GO ALICIA - more points!

Jun 14th, 2004, 10:25 PM
She has qualified. I watched both her first 2 qualifying round matchs, and was chuffed with her performances I admit in the past few years I have grown to become a English Molik fan. I even stood near her when I was watching a match on the outside court. Sadly I was 2 nervous to go up to her to chat to her, but she seemed very friendly. Next time I see her I will chat to her. She beat Perry in the Final Qualifying Round. I was wondering is she popular or famous in Oz, like Henman is over here?

awesome u got to see her. how is she playing?? how come it was such a close match?
next time u should definitely go talk to her, she is really nice :)
as for ur question, alicia's not huge in aussie (thats lleytons job) but most non-tennis fans would of probably heard of her

Jun 14th, 2004, 10:58 PM
final rd qualifying: alicia def perry 6-2, 3-6, 7-5 :o
u scared me so much alicia :eek: :scared: ;)

alicia has been drawn to play the number 7 seed schiavone- i think alicia will be too strong on grass, plus she has already played 6 matches on it to schiavones 0
go alicia :woohoo:

Jun 14th, 2004, 11:01 PM
I did not see the final qualifying round. But I saw the first two. The first qualy Ailcia played was the most one sided match I ever saw, she won 6-0 6-0, and the second match was a bit close in the first set, but then her guns were blazing in the second and ahe did some pretty good winning shots, and won comfortably.

I am hoping she can cause a surprise run to the final in singles or doubles as I will be at Eastbourne on Saturday for the final. Thanks for answering my question.

Come on Ailcia

Jun 15th, 2004, 09:00 AM
I'm surprised that Alicia and Magüi beat Husarova/Martínez yesterday in doubles. Well done girls!

Jun 15th, 2004, 09:42 AM
Go Alicia :banana:

Jun 15th, 2004, 10:06 AM
Cmon Alicia !!!!

Jun 15th, 2004, 11:54 AM
great win for alicia/magui
looks like theyre picking their form back up for wimby! :)

Jun 15th, 2004, 01:56 PM
WTF? Quallies!
OKay maybe this NSW air has made me crazy!
Well hope she does heaps well!

Jun 15th, 2004, 06:41 PM
Bad news everyone Schiavone edged Molik 26 75 76(2) :sad: . Sadly I was not there to watch it. I am disapointed. She should have been given direct entry to the draw. :mad: Shes still in the doubles though. Hope she can reach the final in doubles so i can watch her, and have a chance to meet her. If I do I will say hi to her from all you guys.

Jun 15th, 2004, 07:02 PM
Thx :wavey:

Poor Miss Molik :sad:

Go Alicia/Magui :hearts:

Jun 15th, 2004, 10:49 PM
fuck fuck fuck fuck that is so pathetic alicia :fiery:
u were leading all through the second
and then served for the match at 5-4 in the third :mad:

Jun 15th, 2004, 11:05 PM
I can't fucking believe she lost. She led 62 20 when I went to bed! She won more points! That was such a huge waste of an opportunity to get a swag of points and get close to the top 20 in this tournament.


Jun 16th, 2004, 08:53 AM
Dont wry Alicia

3 good wins in qualifying and rest up before your SEEDED !!! entry in Wimbly

Jun 16th, 2004, 09:32 AM
Sadly I was 2 nervous to go up to her - lol strike ive stood next to many, but i am the same :P

as for the match, it was a good match yesterday. i saw the first set (end) and the 2nd set, best match i saw all day. but my friend said the perry and molik match was the best of the tounament! i am pissed i missed that

Jun 16th, 2004, 09:43 AM
Alicia :sad:

Jun 16th, 2004, 10:12 AM
She is so aussie

very relaxed and very funny. She is heaps nice

Jun 16th, 2004, 11:42 AM
which other players does she hang around with?? :)

Jun 16th, 2004, 11:59 AM
Alot of plays just really hang with each other like at tennis parties and stuff like that

as we saw in French when Alicia, Kim and Svetlana sat and watched the match . . . . good to see that most players get along heaps well

Jun 16th, 2004, 12:02 PM
Still in doubles Alicia so good luck tonight against the number two seeds !!!

Jun 16th, 2004, 12:46 PM
I hope she is playing better next week cos with Kim gone I'll have noone to cheer then!

Jun 16th, 2004, 01:01 PM
I expect you will lose your voice before the 1st week is out :-)

Jun 16th, 2004, 06:27 PM
NOOOOOOOOOOOOO Moliks out the doubles. Now I won't see her at all on Sarurday.

Jun 16th, 2004, 06:37 PM

Jun 19th, 2004, 08:03 PM
I have just got back from Eastbourne, could have been earlier if it were not for delays on the trains. I saw Ailcia win the doubles final.

Anyway heres my attempt at a report on her final forgive me if it's a bit crap.
I can see you guys beat me to it. But I thought Ailcia played very well. Her serve was beautiful, in fact she did not lose her serve in that match. She and Serna broke twice early on and Ailcia impressed the crowd with some stunning shots early on, resulting in them being 5-1 up. however the Russians broke back, courtesy of Sernas serve to get the score to 5-4, but Ailcia Served out the set pretty well.

With the first set wrapped, they then raced to a 4-1 lead, but then Russians broke Maguis serve yet again, and it ended up being on serve, until Ailcia served out a close game which saw her come back from 15-40 to seal the match at the end. A good win, and Ailcia looked in a very good shape. Her groundstrokes were pretty good. I loved watching her today, I watched her practice before the singles final, but sadly was too nervous (again) to approach her. I think i will have to try and ask her for an autograph or photo if I bump into her next time.

Jun 19th, 2004, 08:34 PM
How was Alicias Backhand? :):o

Jun 19th, 2004, 09:24 PM
Looked pretty good, though she made about one or two errors.

Jun 20th, 2004, 01:56 AM
Here's a pic of her first doubles tittle!!! :D Go Alicia! :hearts:

Jun 20th, 2004, 02:11 AM
thanks for the pic :hearts:
nice trophy :eek:

Jun 20th, 2004, 02:32 AM
When the rankings come out this week, Alicia should be ranked 26 in singles and something like 22 in doubles!!! :worship: :bounce:

If she can pick up a bunch of points at Wimby (maybe a win over Dementieva) she'll be knocking on the door of the top 20, which of course is where she belongs.

Jun 20th, 2004, 03:02 AM
awesome :eek: :woohoo:
go alicia!!!!!!!!!

Jun 20th, 2004, 07:01 PM
Well done girls!! :)

And don't worry, Magüi will start playing better soon :p

Jun 20th, 2004, 08:10 PM

Jun 21st, 2004, 01:14 AM
Yeah congrats

skared is right . . . . If Alicia can have some good wins at Wimbly the bigger points grading will certainly push her up in singles and doubles

Be so cool to see her Top 20 in both singles and doubles . . . .GOOD LUCK !!!

Jun 21st, 2004, 03:13 AM
Go Alicia!
Top 20 is where you belong! :bounce:

Jun 21st, 2004, 11:01 AM
thanks for the pic :hearts:
nice trophy :eek:

hhhhmmmmm. :confused: !!
who would get to keep the trophy?? Or would they get a replica each?
It is pretty cool! Molik looks stocked! :)

Jun 22nd, 2004, 07:13 AM
A new pic (similar to the other one ;))


Jun 22nd, 2004, 09:54 AM
thanks MS ;)
