Congrats to Alisa! But isn't it too soon to be heaping so much praise on Alisa, thus creating alot of pressure for her to deal with so early in her career?
So far Alisa seems to be ahead of any top junior Russian girl at a comparative age!
Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett
1st round: Mathilde Johansson FRA (5 years older and already played quali pro)
3rd round: Madalina Gojnea ROM (Alisa has a dismal record against her)
quarters: Tatiana Golovin FRA (obviously one of the favourites here)
semi: Anna-Lena Groenefeld GER (an excellent clay court player)
