This seems to have been a bit over shadowed by everybody's comebacks and that awesome discovery thread:p

But anyway, Alicia is the number 1 seed I think in the Prague qualifying and first up she is playing Pigová, Eva.

If she wins that match she will play either Tereza Hladíková or Alicja Rosolska


GOODLUCK ALICIA:bounce:

Not a bad draw for Alicia, she should qualify for this easy :D
Some easy matches for her to win & no doubt it might give her some confidence.

:eek: Was Alicia a late entrant because I never knew she was on the entry list...
Or maybe I have been consumed by comeback fever :lol:

Thanks for posting it Keadz otherwise I would never have known she was even playing ...
The Discovery Thread ;) :yeah: or are you bagging it :tape: :p

Good luck Alicia, please qualify :armed:

10 aces :D and she finished it in 48 minutes :yeah:

Golovinjured.
Apr 26th, 2008, 12:32 PM
Yeah and she won the last 9 games in a rowfrom 3-3. Looks like she might be getting in form :yeah: She flew through that second set.

Ben.
Apr 26th, 2008, 12:36 PM
her competition will get tougher from there, but this win should give her the much needed confidence booster to get through the rest of her matches.

So Disrespectful
Apr 26th, 2008, 12:40 PM
Well done Alicia, and is it just me, or is the tennis forum logo of Alicia? It sure looks like her silhouette in a certain AO photo from 2005.

lol everyone is getting so excited, alicia beat a nobody, dokic beat a nobody (she might not be an aussie for much longer anyway), christina hasnt beaten anyone in the top 300 on her run the the 10k final. its nice to finally see a few wins but you have to look at who they were against.

well yes, but you can't help us if we wanna celebrate their wins :rolleyes: plus I can be realistic you know at times, Im not saying that Molik & Dokic will win titles all the time you know.

and if you got a problem with that, well then :shrug:

my god alicia... wtf

Golovinjured.
Apr 27th, 2008, 01:05 PM
Well she's got it back to 3-3 in the second set, from 0-3. She needs to lift because this would be just flat out embarrassing. If she loses here she should go back to the ITF for a few weeks before hitting Roland Garros quallies.

This is insane. what the fuck. 3 aces only????

its 2 / 2 in the third now. Surely alicia will win this... surely

smit101
Apr 27th, 2008, 02:05 PM
PHEW! Alicia wins 3-6 7-5 6-4! Tough match, Alicia actually lost more points and only had 3 aces. She needs to find some form and fast, but i guess a win is win.

scottsue
Apr 27th, 2008, 02:07 PM
59% of first serves in only. The serve is the key so Bradtke betta get a couple of extra buckets to practice with.

Golovinjured.
Apr 27th, 2008, 02:34 PM
Yeah Hladikova actually won more points that Alicia which is very scary. Alicia was very lucky to win especially after being down 3-6 0-3. I really cannot believe she had to dig so deep for this win - but hopefully its a good thing :shrug:

Talita Kumi

Next one will be tougher...she beat Urszula Radwanska in the first round 6-4 6-2...
Hope Alicia can pull her finger out and really play some good, solid tennis which we all know she is capable of...
And she did get a wildcard to play qualifying in Prague...a wise choice, some valuable match play ;)

Droolv

OZTENNIS
Apr 28th, 2008, 01:12 PM
She was close to losing that second set...
I think she'll run away with the third now...not because she will lift her game, but because her opponent will be annoyed and rush

OZTENNIS
Apr 28th, 2008, 01:12 PM
I don't think I've seen her get more than 60% of first serves in yet on the clay...

I find it so sad to think she was playing and beating the world's best 3 years ago...now she struggles to put away nobodys :sad:

All there is to say is atleast shes had some hours on the court playing matches. she won them but was not impressive at all! Hope she draws someone easy otherwise i'll be afraid to look at the result.

Jeez she's making it hard for herself isnt she :) Very lucky to pull through again! Hopefully he can get an easier first round opponent or else she might be flogged badly :( I wish he'd go back to the ITF's just for a week or two...

ok, me thinks i might have imagined that she split from nicole, i could have sworn that i heard it somewhere.
but i just looked it up on the internet and no news that she split from nicole. (one article said that they had a one-year contract)

sorry guys for jumping the gun on that one.

TBE's projected rankings have Alicia sitting at No.114. If she wins her first match, she should jump to No.105 - and get in Wimbledon directly...

I agree that its a good first round match up for her, it would be really good for her to get a win in the MD & from here onwards her chances of playing in the wimbledon MD are good.

The OOP is this:

Shaughnessy vs. Rybarikova
2. Amanmuradova vs. Krajicek (NB 12.00hrs)
3. Pliskova vs. Molik
4. Zvonareva vs. Hradecka
5. Kvitova vs. Azarenka


But Pliskova lost her first round so I think she is playing Vinci?

No, there are two Pliskovas....twins ;)


Here is an article about Molik and Dokic from TA Website today:


Australians Alicia Molik and Jelena Dokic have won through the qualifying rounds in Prague and Fes respectively.
It was a tough run for Dokic, who hasn't played since her second round loss in the Australian Open qualifiers in January. She received a wildcard into the qualifying rounds of the Grand Prix de SAR La Princesse Lalla Meryem in Fes, Morocco.
Dokic won all three of her qualiying rounds, including wins over the No.6 seed Michelle Larcherde Brito and the No.3 seed Johanna Larsson to claim her place in the main draw.
Dokic weathered an early challenge from Johansson, losing the first set 1-6 but bounced back to take the final two sets 6-2 6-3. She will now face Hungarian Greta Arn in the first round.
Ranked 143 in the world, Arn and Dokic have met twice before – at Wimbledon in 2000 and the US Open in 2002. Dokic has triumphed both times in straight sets.
For Molik it was an up and down day at the ECM Prague Open. Ranked No.1 in the qualifying draw, Molik was stretched to three sets in two out of her three matches on her way to qualifying. The downside was losing her first round doubles match with fellow Aussie Bryanne Stewart 6-0 6-4 to unseeded pair Darya Kustova (BLR) and Alicja Rosoloska (POL).
Molik was put to the test in her final match, losing the first set to Czech Andrea Hlavackova 5-7. But the No.1 seed bounced back to snatch the final two sets 7-5 6-4 to cement her place in the main draw.
Molik will play Czech wildcard Karolina Pliskova in the first round on centre court on Tuesday. A win there will set up a meeting with No.8 seed Kaia Kinepi.
Pliskova has a career-high ranking of 733, which the 16 year old achieved in December 2007. This will be the pair's first meeting.
Meanwhile in Barcelona, Australian Peter Luczak will play Italian Potito Starace in the first round of the Open Sabadell Atlantico. Ranked No.93 to Starace's 45, this will be the pair's second meeting – Starace won the first in Acapulco on clay earlier this year.
If Luczak can find a way past the Italian he will come face to face with No.1 seed and claycourt specialist Rafael Nadal in the second round.
