Alison (WTA-138) faced Anett Kontaveit (WTA-118) in the quarterfinals at the ITF-tournament in Poitiers ($ 100 000). In 2011 Ali played once against the Estonian and she won in straight sets.
Today the Belgian was also the better in two sets. In the first set, Alison broke her opponent’s servce twice but had to give in her servicegame once: 6-4. In the second set Ali kept the momentum. She converted her break opportunities efficiently and won the set 6-2.
In the semifinal Alison faces sixth seed Lauren Davis (WTA-72). They meet each other for the first time.
