Alize's 2017 season cheering thread

Alize's had a pretty solid start to her 2017 season.

In Brisbane she survived a very tough one against Elena Vesnina in round one, coming back from 36 03 down (and then 1-4 down in the second set) to win 36 64 76(5).

Then she beat Christina McHale in surprisingly one-sided style, 1 and 2, after Christina had beaten Sara Errani.

And then she beat Cibulkova in 2 sets in the QF! Great start to the season! She needs to win one more match (vs Muguruza or Kuznetsova) to secure an AO seeding.

Alize wins 4-1 retired against Muguruza and secures a seeding for AO. Ostapenko who was competing for the seeding lost 64 46 1-4 retired anyway against Lauren Davis in Auckland.

Alize into the final of Brisbane. Kind of unexpected, but a great result for her.

Re: Alize's 2017 season cheering thread

She's been struggling after reaching the Brisbane final. She lost that final 0 and 3 against Karolina Pliskova.

Then in the Australian Open she beat Myrtille Georges in three sets 6-3 4-6 6-1 and then lost the 2nd round vs Maria Sakkari 5-7 6-4 1-6.

Last night she lost against Vesnina 2-6 6-3 6-3, admittedly Vesnina seems to be having one of her good weeks, she beat Makarova 3 and 1 in the first round, and I guess this surface possibly suits Elena more than Alize.

Continuing to struggle. She just lost in three sets (61 in the third) against Bouchard in Madrid R1. That was Bouchard's first win in 3 and a half months, breaking a 6 match losing streak.

I reckon she'll step it up at Roland Garros though, at least I hope so.
