Wierd match...

Alicia had 6 love-service games.

She could have easily beaten her 6-1 6-1. She had break points in all of Schiavone's games up to 4-2. She blasted 4 love service games in a row to start off then in the next one she got broken to 30. Then Schiavone blasted 2 love-service games and Alicia struggled on serve until the TB.

Schiavone DF'd on Alicia's set point and it was pretty much all over from there. I thiought Schiavone fought admirably in the first set.

Francesca! :sad:
Francesca played well in the first set... Alicia could (should?) have won that much easier than she did She had break points in Francesca's 2nd and 3rd service games... really could/should have taken the first set 6-1!!! Credit should go to Francesca's fighting spirit.

Francesca does this a lot. A great first set against a top player that she loses, than she goes away.

This was a great match.

Alicia seems to be playing well these days.

Well done Alicia! :worship: Although I would've preferred a 6-1, 6-1 demolition, the 7-6, 6-1 score isn't too bad for your first professional match of the year.

it was a strange match for molik although i only saw the first set and a bit of the 2nd. although alicia had those love service games it didnt look like she was comfortable out there and playing all that weel, she just looked awkward to me like she was playing it safe or something.

good to see her win the first match tho.

Francesca :sad: :( but was always going to be tough against Alicia

Fran's a character out there :D Anybody who watched her match against Angela Haynes would know that. And she can be a very tough compiteter although she tends to drop if she loses a tough set

That "in between the legs" shot against Haynes was hilarious :haha:

Haynes was so surprised she hit that easy volley out :p

Francesca also seems to be a character with her scheduling. She played hopman without the benefit of a male player who could win and missed out on points that week. Then she didn't defend her points this week but went to Sydney instead. She seems to schedule herself to play top players when she would be ranked considerably higher if she went point fishing elsewhere.
