Entry for June 08, 2007 – Go Molik!

Posted by HelenEdith on June 8, 2007

Today was the day that Alicia Molik picked up her second Grand Slam tennis title. To go along with her 2005 Australian Open doubles title, when partnered by Svetlana Kuznetsova, she now has the 2007 French Open doubles title, along with her partner Mara Santangelo.

Molik was twice a finalist in 2004 with Todd Woodbridge in the mixed doubles. Those matches were at Wimbledon and the US Open. It means that Molik has now been a finalist at all four majors.

What is particularly encouraging about this latest win is that Molik was hit by an inner ear infection in 2005 and it affected her balance so badly that she was unable to play again until the middle of 2006, and has yet to recover her singles form.

Go Molik! Get back in that Top Ten, girl!
