Alison (WTA-67) has lost her first match at Roland Garros (France, Grand Slam). She was defeated in three sets by Martina Trevisan (WTA-97).
Alison is still looking for confidence after her knee surgery earlier this year. The Belgian started the game well and got three set points on her own service at 5-4, but Trevisan turned the tide: 5-7.
In the second set, Alison managed to finish the job, and took the set 6-4. In the third set, both players were evenly matched, Ali led 4-3, but Trevisan again accelerated and took the decisive set 4-6. The match lasted 2 hours and 53 minutes.
