Alize will play qualifier Castano in the first round in Mexico, and would meet meet Candela (who she beat easily in Bad Gastien last year) in the second round. We'll see how she plays, but she has some opportunities with this draw. Pennetta was knocked out of her bracket today, if Alize could put a run together she could face Errani in the SF's.
Really a great win. She was down so many times and fought hard to win this match. Her mental strength and physical conditioning were both impressive in this match. Gets much, much tougher now against Errani in the SF's. But win or lose, its been a good tournament for her.
