Just like in Rio De Janeira, Alison (WTA-96) struggled to keep up the good form she showed in Antwerp. She lost in the first qualifying round in two sets against Sesil Karatantcheva (WTA-155).
After a short stop on gravel, Ali played again on hardcourt at the WTA-tournament in Acapulco. She had to compete against Karatantcheva, who she beat in two sets last year. Today she could not repeat her victory. A very close first set was decided in the tiebreak. The Bulgarian was the stronger of the two, and won the first set 6-7(5). In the second set Alison struggled with her serve, she only hit 36% of her first serves in. She was broken three times, and lost the second set 1-6.
