Alison wins first qualifying match in Eastbourne

Alison (WTA-134) has won her first qualifying match in Eastbourne. Normally she had to face compatriot Kirsten Flipkens (WTA-61), but Flipkens had to withdraw as she was still playing in Mallorca. Alison faced alternate Anastasia Rodionova (WTA-471) instead. The Belgian did not have much difficulties with her opponent and easily won 6-1 and 6-1 in 36 minutes.

In the final qualifying round Alison will face Yaroslava Shvedova (WTA-96). They play each other for the first time.
