Good for Alicia, in her home country, on it's biggest stage, at this point in her career. Nice. :hug:

Got a bit lucky there on the let cord when Vinci was serving for it at 30-0. But what a great win for Molik there, at times especially in that second set she was truly superb, some of the best tennis I've seen her play in a while.

Jan 18th, 2011, 06:11 AM
yesssss! :worship: :sobbing:

Jan 18th, 2011, 06:11 AM
Greaaaaaaat last few games. :hearts:

Alicia was playing so good towards the end :hearts: Hitting through the backhand quite successfully, and the serve was on. :hearts:

Vinci... I didn't like how she hurried on the last point, and serve and volleyed. No fight whatsoever.

Jan 18th, 2011, 06:12 AM
And I gotta add... I LOVE THE AUSSIE CROWD. :hearts:

Jan 18th, 2011, 06:12 AM
Alicia played some good tennis, along with some very amateur tennis. Enjoyable match though, have to feel a bit for Roberta I think the crowd got to her a bit.

Jan 18th, 2011, 06:13 AM
Well done Alicia! Very well performed in the final set.

Jan 18th, 2011, 06:14 AM
so proud of you, Alicia :hearts:
at least this cures the pain of your lost last year.

Jan 18th, 2011, 06:14 AM

So happy for Alicia!
First set wasnt great, but she stepped it up and fought hard in the 2nd and 3rd :D

Jan 18th, 2011, 06:15 AM
So happy :cheer:
Average match, but Molik won. Yippee!

Jan 18th, 2011, 06:15 AM
Great comeback Alicia

Jan 18th, 2011, 06:15 AM
The interview with Stubbs after just makes you want to root for Molik even more, the Aussie really do support their own so well.

Jan 18th, 2011, 06:16 AM
Great fighting win and fantastic to see such a lovely genuine person enjoying her victory - brought a smile to my face keep it going Alicia

Jan 18th, 2011, 06:19 AM
Omg i'm soo happy!!!!! And she was so happy too! Aah:D:bounce:

Jan 18th, 2011, 06:20 AM
Caught the last set. Nice to see Alicia get the win! Good job :) :yeah:

Jan 18th, 2011, 06:29 AM
Alicia :) :bounce: All the credit to you. Great fight! :worship:

Jan 18th, 2011, 06:35 AM
Seems like Vinci got agitated by the crowd in the third set, while Molik was drew energy from their support.

Jan 18th, 2011, 06:38 AM
So proud of Alicia... I was screaming the house down. Vintage 05 form in patches!!

Jan 18th, 2011, 06:43 AM
WOwow. Absolutely vindicated decision to put this match on centre court.

What a feel-good win for Alicia at her home Grand Slam! :D

It made up for the pathetic loss last year. Let me just say... I LOVE Stubbsy as post-match interviewer. She knows the players well so there's a lot more chemistry than that annoying Jim Courier.

Jan 18th, 2011, 06:56 AM
:haha: :haha:

Jan 18th, 2011, 07:53 AM

So so happy for Alicia. Hopefully Nadia has a mental melt down in the next round.

Jan 18th, 2011, 08:23 AM
never expected alicia to win, glad she proved me wrong.

Jan 18th, 2011, 08:41 AM
I didn´t see that one coming. But I´m happy for Alicia. :bounce:

Jan 18th, 2011, 08:59 AM
Good work Alicia!

Jan 18th, 2011, 09:21 AM
Good win for Alicia

Especially after being down in the first set!

Jan 18th, 2011, 09:36 AM
I only saw the first set of this match and I'm surprised ALicia managed to get it competitive!! Ah well, she must have deserved it

Jan 18th, 2011, 02:14 PM
Lucky Alicia they played in Australia.

Jan 18th, 2011, 04:11 PM
Alicia :yeah:

Jan 18th, 2011, 04:11 PM
never ending story with Roby :rolleyes: she just does well 3/4 weeks per year :weirdo:

Jan 18th, 2011, 04:20 PM
Fuck yeah!! :woohoo:

Jan 18th, 2011, 05:06 PM
Leesh :worship:. Was a bit worried when I saw the draw but thankfully it was alright :yeah:

The crowd was happy. :)

Jan 18th, 2011, 05:28 PM
While I respect both players I am more partial to Vinci than I am to Molik.

But considering this will almost certainly be Alicia's last AO it is very heartening to see her summon the skill and the shear willpower to produce the effort that won her this match. I am sure this is a match that Molik will be able to look back on with great fondness and pride for the rest of her life and it is the kind of match that for professionals who play tennis makes all the hard work and emotional trauma that comes with being a tennis player worth it. Simply this is what professional tennis players play for. Well done to Alicia :yeah:

Jan 18th, 2011, 05:28 PM
Exciting! But Roberta was kinda tight in the last few games, the crowd, and her opponent proved a bit too much. Thanks for the entertaining match girls!

Jan 18th, 2011, 05:40 PM
A much needed win for Alicia :yeah: The crowd must have really been into this match :D
