Re: Alizé's 2016 season

Alize beat Kiki 3&4. Did anyone see it? I'm imagining a pretty messy match. Alize really needed this win though.

Re: Alizé's 2016 season

Alizé looked in great shape and was hitting the ball very well, serve, forehand, backhand. She was the most aggressive player overall in this match. Kristina had trouble to adjust.

Re: Alizé's 2016 season

One set all vs Pavlyuchenkova. Alizé is playing pretty well, I must say. She usually struggles against big hitters but she was able to raise her level in the second set and also play smart. Fingers crossed!

Re: Alizé's 2016 season

I hope she keeps that form for the whole year, and improve some weaknesses here and there. Lost her cool and focus too fast in the first set, and lacked some cool and cleverness in the third as well. Otherwise, physically, technically and mentally, it's all there, she knows what she has to do. If she could just correct that crazy temper...

Re: Alizé's 2016 season

She's in the SF following w/o from Barthel.
Next opponent is Larsson and if she wins Bouchard/Pome.

Please win this tournament and save tennis Elzi.

Re: Alizé's 2016 season

Alize beat Genie 61 62. I didn't see it but that's a great start to the year for Alize. I'm not really expecting her to repeat this in the AO where there are so many tough players, but it seems she has finally turned the corner after a fairly long period of bad form.

First round in the AO is Bojana Jovanovski who seems to be in awful form since apparently getting engaged. But the second round is Simona Halep which would be very tough.

Re: Alizé's 2016 season

Congrats Alize!!

That's a pretty good way to start this season after the poor 2015 season.

Captain Matthew Gideon: I may have an idea.
Dureena Nafeel: I don't think you've recovered from your last good idea.
Captain Matthew Gideon: That would explain it.

Re: Alizé's 2016 season

Alize looks a lot fitter and quicker around the court this year compared to last year, looks like she is injury free and had a great offseason.

Re: Alizé's 2016 season

Didn't get to see it but apparently Shuai Zhang played lights out tennis and Alize couldn't find a way to unsettle her.

Re: Alizé's 2016 season

She said she had an adductor injury after the match and didn't want to make it worse, so she didn't play 100%. She said she regretted it.
