Witthoeft first opponent in Hobart

Next week Alison (WTA-44) will play the WTA-tournament in Hobart. She is seeded eighth and plays Carina Witthoeft (WTA-64) in the first round. Both girls played against each other three times before, and twice the German won the match. Last season, two of these encounters were played. On hardcourt Ali got the victory in two sets, but on gravel she lost in three.
