The women’s doubles sadly wasn’t a pleasant experience for Alison at the Australian Open. Alison and her doubles partner Anna-Lena Friedsam trailed 0-5 against Karolina Pliskova and Donna Vekic when Alison decided to retire.
After they lost the first two games, Alison and Anna-Lena had a chance to break back but couldn’t convert. Pliskova and Vekic then raced towards an 0-5 lead. The Czech-Croatian combination also were up 0-15 in the sixth game. Alison was suffering from a headache and decided to retire after 28 mins. Now ofcourse she has to get well first and then Alison will work towards the Taipei tournament at the end of this month.
