The match against Camilla Giorgi (WTA-59) in the second round at Lugano was suspended because of the rain. Play will continue Friday on Centre Court.
Two good serves and an excellent backhand long-line erased a 0-40-deficit in Alison’s first service game. Alison then went on to break Giorgi’s serve. The Italian player responded by achieving an immediate break back and also won the next game. At 2-3, play was suspended.
The match will continue Friday at 10 am. If Alison wins, she’ll have to play Aryna Sabalenka (WTA-61) from Belarus later that day.
