At the third day of the Australian Open, No.12 seed Nicole Vaidisova of Czech Republic defeated Australian Alicia Molik in straight sets 6-2 6-3 , and later apologized for beating the local favorite.
Vaidisova's domination in this second round match raised questions about Molik’s ability to fight back to a career-high world ranking of eight. After the one-sided encounter, the 18-year-old Vaidisova apologized to the crowd for 'ruining' their day by beating their home player.
With the victory the world No.12 booked a meeting with Japanese veteran Ai Sugiyama.
BTW: Finally, Nicole Vaidisova said something about her supposed engagement to fellow Czech Radek Stepanek. They are dating, but there is "no wedding, no engagement, no nothing." Why did it take her so long to announce the truth?
