Alison (WTA-91) played for the first time in her career against the Australian Olivia Rogowska (WTA-196) in the final qualifying round of the WTA-tournament in Marrakech.
The Australian got off to the best start and took a 1-3 lead. Ali fought back and won four games in a row. When Ali was up 5-4 Rogowska had to serve to stay in the set. She failed, and Ali was able to take the first set at the first set point.
In the second set Ali did not give her opponent any chance to break. She only needed one break to take the second set 6-4.
On the main draw Alison will face eighth seed Monica Puig (WTA-47). It will be the first meeting with the Puerto Rican.
