No final in Palermo

Alison (WTA D-125) and her partner Greet Minnen (WTA D-156) failed to qualify for the doubles final at the WTA tournament in Palermo (Italy, International).

In their semi-final, Alison and Greet met the Dutch Arantxa Rus (WTA D-134) and Tamara Zidansek (WTA D-100) from Slovenia. The first set was only a formality for the two Belgian players: 6-1.

In the second set, Alison and Greet also took the first game before their opponents got awake and suddenly forced a break. The couple came back, but eventually had to recognize the superiority of the duo on the other side after a tiebreak and super tiebreak: 6-1, 6-7 (4) and 11-13 after 1 hour and 46 minutes of play.
