Alize at the XXX. Olympic Games in London

Alize won her 1st round against Tamira Paszek 76(4)64. Amazing result. I'm very very happy now.

Very nice win considering Paszek's recent grasscourt form. Now let's see if she can follow it up.

Re: Alize at the XXX. Olympic Games in London

Great win Paszek has been very tough on grass, and we all know Alize's history on the surface. Doesn't get any easier...next will be Hantuchova or Li Na...then possibly Wozniacki and Serena. Hopefully she will enjoy the experience, have fun, be positive, and play like she has nothing to lose.

Alize and Mladenovic won the second set 76 after they were 16 35 down. Huge fighting. I hope they can win the deciding set. Allez!

Unfortunately Peng/Zheng won the match 61 67 63. Nice match. It was closer than I expected.

Looking forward to the second round match. I just hope Alize keeps a clear head after all the crazy media attention on her r1 win.

Second match didn't go well at all... lost 3 and 0.

Re: Alize at the XXX. Olympic Games in London

My heart was hoping for a better result...but my head knew it would be unlikely Alize would beat Dani on grass. Nice if she could have gone a bit deeper into the tournament, but on this surface it's hard to expect that she would. Still, its a good effort to make the team and get back in the top 50...something that seemed unlikely six month's ago.

Sad she lost. But Alizé won two matches on grass this year. That's great
