Alicia Molik has officially announced her retirement from the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour. Molik has been a top ten player and has been leading women’s tennis in Australia for years. Molik has won five singles and seven doubles titles, including the 2005 Australian Open doubles trophy with Svetlana Kuznetsova.
Molik was on tour for over twelve years and she is still only 27. Alicia has had a lot of injuries over the years and recently she found it near impossible to recover from an inner ear infection which caused her to miss six months.
Molik will really be missed, but I’m sure we will see her at the Australian Open in a commentary job.
