The US Open starts today in New York City. Alison will not feature yet. She will only get into action on day two. She will then play Lesya Tsurenko in the first round.
Alison got a tricky draw. Being the world number 39, she’s not that far off from being seeded at the Grand Slams. And yet she has to face a player who’s ranked even higher in the first round. Ukrainian player Tsurenko is ranked number 36. Both players faced each other once. In 2013 at ‘s Hertogenbosch, Tsurenko prevailed after a close affair. It promises to be an exciting match again.
Normally the match will be started and finished on Tuesday. More details about the possible start of the match and about the court Alison will be playing on, will follow soon.
