No final in Katowice

Alison (WTA-105) was not able to reach the final of the WTA tournament in Katowice (Poland, $ 250,000). In the semis she lost to eighth seed Anna Karolína Schmiedlova (WTA-67) in two sets.

Earlier this year, the 21-year-old Alison and the 20-year Schmiedlova faced each other in Rio de Janeiro. There the Slovakian won 6-3 and 6-0. In Poland the eight seed was again too strong for Ali, after 1 hour and 15 minutes Schmiedlova won the match 6-4 and 6-1.

In the final Schmiedlova will take on the winner of the match between first seed Agnieszka Radwanska (WTA-9) and third seed Camila Giorgi (WTA-34).
