Alison is playing women’s doubles alongside her partner Greet Minnen at Wimbledon. Together they already have been able to beat the British duo Christie/Swan.
The home players were very motivated in front of their own crowd and led by 5 games to 2. And yet, Alison and Greet could turn things around to save their first set. They didn’t even need a tie-break. From 2-5 down they went to winning the set by 7 games to 5.
The Belgian duo pushed on to victory. In the first six games of the second set, their British opponents could only win one game. After 1 hour and 25 minutes it was game, set and match: 7-5 6-2. In the second round Alison and Greet will face Hao-Ching and Latisha Chan, two strong doubles players from Taipei. Even more exciting is the upcoming match in singles: Alison will play world numer one and French Open-winner Ashleigh Barty.
