Well, I am disappointed to see Alicia Molik lost in three sets in her first match on grass this season. I really thought she would shine here after two-straight first round clay court losses.

I have said all along that although she is having a relatively good year, she still needs to find some consistency with her mental game.

Hopefully she gets her act together in the next few weeks. To me grass is the one surface she really can show how talented she is.

since that first roound loss in the tournament before RG alicia hasn't had the best results. she went on to lose 1st round at RG (although to a high seed i still think she should have won that match and gone on a couple more rounds after that) then she had this 1st round loss.

i really hope she can pick things up for wimbledon.

go alicia!

Alicia :sad:

She had a wonderful year until a tournament before Roland Garros. Now, it seems Alicia is back where she was before this year.

Alicia :sad:

Lol is that her nickname now?
I guess so but I didn't "invent it" for her. My nicknames are more creative, like Peppermint Patty, the Placid Parisian (Nathalie D.) and Baby Blue Eyes (Lina :kiss: ).

:sad: :sad: But it's only one loss. If she racks them up, then I'll be worried. GO ALICIA! :bounce:

The most frustrating thing is that we all KNOW she's got the talent. It's just a matter of converting it into wins. She needs to stop having 'bad days' and 'bad weeks' and start playing consistant tennis. Yes, this is all very obvious stuff and easier said than done, but grass is a great surface for her, and I really expect her to do better.

In better news, she's now the number one Australian woman player at 56 after poor Nicole slumped to 59 (Alicia also slipped down a place, but she's sure to greatly improve her ranking over the next month if she shows us all what she's capable of).

:sad: Heres hoping that she has a ripping wimbledon. Hopefully if her and Martina do ok in the doubles she can get some good court time on the grass. In all due respect though, I've never seen Vinci play but see that she is a good doubles player, and good doubles players are always tough on grass. I would really love to see someone like Tony Roache help work with her over the grasscourt season. With a serve that she has, she should be testing all the strong players and not losing to someone with a ranking like Vinci IMO Ohh well...there is always next week and she didn't injure herself.

It isn't one loss though. She now has lost three straight and I think she lost her second match at FedCup too.
