Alison faces Kuznetsova in Wimbledon opener

Alison (WTA-58) will be playing at The Championships this week at Wimbledon, the third Grand Slam of the year, which will be played on grass in the United Kingdom.

To start her tournament, Alison will face Russian player Svetlana Kuznetsova (WTA-102). She was one of the ten best players of the world between 2006 and 2009, again performed extremely well in 2016 and 2017, before heading towards the 100th place on the WTA ranking. Despite the fact that Kuznetsova has been on tour for many years, Alison never faced her before. If Alison wins, she could face the world number one and French Open champion Ashleigh Barty in the second round.
