Smooth victory in Hong Kong

Alison (WTA-91) had to compete against Katarzyna Piter (WTA-122) in the first round. Both players were facing each other for the first time, but the Belgian had no difficulties with her opponent.

In the first set Ali never got into trouble during her own service games. While leading 2-1, she converted a breakpoint, and she successfully defended her advantage: 6-2. In the second set she kept the momentum, and won easily 6-1.

In the second round Alison will meet second seed Daniela Hantuchova (WTA-57) or Ling Zhang (WTA-219), who received a wildcard. They play eachother tomorrow.
