2008 Grass season

After a really nice clay season, Alizé prepare Eastbourne and Wimbledon...
Hope for some WTA points?

Re: 2008 Grass season

Indeed. I don't really know what to expect. Mauresmo is the kind of opponent that she should beat without too many difficulties now considering how poor her level is. But as it's on grass, things are completely different. I think that Alizé will consider herself as the underdog and may find a way to win playing without the pressure, just for fun.
Allez!

Re: 2008 Grass season

Alizé lost 61 46 75! Such a fight but a loss in the end, poor Alizé . But this sounds quite promising, even if she is out of form, Amélie remains a very tough competitor on grass. What is also good to know is that Alizé only lost her serve once in the last sets. Since holding serve is one of the key rules, I guess this is not a bad experience at all.
Let's hope for a more clement draw now in Wimbledon!

Re: 2008 Grass season

My God... It was former Wimbledon Champion vs girl who played 5 matches on grass before (won 3 of that...). Its AMAZING that she gave Ame a 3set fight...After 1st set I expected blowout.

I'm alaways right, even when Im wrong...

Re: 2008 Grass season

Sad loss after such a huge fight (After that 1st set..) but still, I guess Mauresmo is more confident on grass than she's on clay, so still, great fight from Alize, losing to Mauresmo on grass is no shame.
Now preper well for Wimbldon

Re: 2008 Grass season

Alizé is playing the Eastbourne Cup to have extra matches on grass before Wimbledon! I don't know where the draw can be found, I read that on the forum of her official website. You can check the matches that will be played here : http://www.lta.org.uk/Global/Downloads/Results/Int.%20Womens%20Open/Order%20of%20Play.pdf

She faces Vera Dushevina to begin. Shouldn't be much of a hurdle. I hope she tests herself so as to know what she has to do on this surface. The scoreline against Amélie is obviously quite promising, the only thing that we don't know is which Amélie was on court.

Re: 2008 Grass season

Alizé defeated Dushevina 61 63 . (thanks to Isabelle of Alizé's website)
She will meet Niculescu now.

This is an excellent initiative to play this unofficial competition, it gives her extra matches & opportunities to try different things to adapt her game to grass. The result doesn't really care but the more victories she can get, the better it is.

Re: 2008 Grass season

Alizé defeated Niculescu 64 61 . Another good win, she should really get through her opener in Wimbledon quite easily unless she draws somebody tough like Li. Plays the SF against Ula Radwanska.
