Last week Alison (WTA-44) lost immediately in the first round in Acapulco. Next week, however, she will have a new opportunity in Mexico, at the WTA-tournament in Monterrey. Ali is seeded sixth and will face American Irina Falconi (WTA-78) in the first round. It will be the first encounter between the two players.
If the Belgian survives the first round, she will play in the second round against compatriot Kirsten Flipkens (WTA-71) or Francesca Schiavone (WTA-94).
