Foot injury keeps Alison away from Birmingham

Alison (WTA-46) was to cancel her appearance at this week’s WTA-tournament in Birmingham. During the last days the Belgian had to cope with an injury.

“I was suffering from a mild foot injury and I focus on Wimbledon now”, she says. “Normally I would still play the tournament in Eastbourne, but it is difficult to get on the main draw as my new ranking does not count yet.”

Today, Ali slowly resumes her training in Rosmalen. On Thursday she leaves for London. “I will continue to prepare myself in Wimbledon”, she added.
