Ali’s turn at French Open: first round match later today

On the third day of the French Open, Alison can finally get into action. She will play the Australian opponent Isabelle Wallace later today. If Alison wins, she will face 11th seed Julia Georges or Dominika Cibulkova in the second round.

Ali’s opponent in the first round is a 21-year old left handed player. Other than that, Wallace is still pretty much unknown. Wallace is the world number 245. It will be the first meeting between the Australian player and Alison. Their match will be the third match on Court 5.

Alison will also enter the doubles tournament in Paris. She will play doubles alongside Polona Hercog from Slovenia. Their first opponents are the Japanese players Eri Hozumi and Makoto Ninomiya.
