This week Alison (WTA-79) is playing at the WTA-tournament of Guangzhou ($500 000). In the first round she will face Su-Wei Hsieh (WTA-174). The Chinese Taipese received a wildcard for the main draw and is no stranger to the Belgian. Both players faced each other already twice. In 2011, Ali booked a victory on the clay courts of Brussels in three sets, and also earlier this year Alison was the better player on the hardcourts of Florianopolis.
If Alison can continue on the good vibes of last week and win her first match, she might face sixth seed Roberta Vinci (WTA-44) in the second round.
