Oh Alicia. Finally got the break back to level it 5-5 and then led 6-5, but it went downhill after that:lol: Good try, Alicia.

Oh god this result hurts :(

She was soooo close. Come back from 3-5 to 6-5 in the final set. Then only one one point for the rest of the match. :unsure:

So much to happy about this week though. Proved that she really is a force back on the tour. Pushed Zheng yet again, nearly made the quarter finals. Hopefully a wildcard in Miami or something for a repeat result. :)

Congrats Zheng, your lucky I like you...otherwise I would hate you for a week!

Good job on getting through though I am not sure how someone with a ground game like Zheng can struggle so much with Molik.

Molik had a serve, Jie doesn't. Jie needs pace and a consistently hit ball, whilst Molik mixes it up...changes the spins, angles, pace etc.

Quite a bad match up for Jie really. But she is in with a chance to win the whole thing now.

Because you should perhaps give Molik a little more credit?

It has been a very good tournament for Alicia - 4th round at IW is a result she didn't have when she was in top form in 2005. Shows that she can still match the game of a top 20 player.

Here's hoping that she gets another WC for Miami and get back inside the top 100 soon!

Jie struggles with the kick serves I think. She's so little that when someone hits a kick serve it always jumps way above her head. :crying2:

Well done on getting this far Alicia.. to have beaten Jie again this year would have been GREAT! but probably was never going to happen... Hopefully she can get the WC into Miami and have similar results there...

actually the better news is that Petrova is one game away from being out.
Let's go, Jie!
