Alison (WTA-115) plays the Katowice Open in Poland next week. In the first round she will face the Slovakian Magdalena Rybarikova (WTA-47) for the third time this year. Rybarikova is seeded fourth in Poland, but Ali already beat her twice this year. At the Diamond Games in Antwerp she won in straight sets, and last week in Miami she was the better in three sets. Hopefully the Belgian can repeat her trick for the third time.
