i actually think alicia did quite well especially if dementieva was playing well. taking elena d to 7-6 is pretty tough to do when she is playing well. so well done to alicia in that respect. it would have been nice if alicia won and as said above on a better day she may have won but beating elena d would have been a big step for alicia imo.
