I'm afraid I won't be able to pull off going to Katowice this year. Bummed but have things I need to sort out at home. C'est la vie. I still have Wimbledon to look forward to at least.
Anyway, I do hope Alison has successful weeks in both her upcoming WTA qualie events. Considering Alison has a pretty good track record when she has played at this level I'm pretty optimistic. The bigger tournaments do seem to bring the best out of her.
Has withdrawn from $100k Cagnes Sur Mer and will play $75k in Slovakia that week instead. Currently set to be seeded in quallies.
For the following week Alison has entered $100k Prague but is sitting 15 out of qualifying at this stage. Prague is her first priority but has entered $50k Saint Gaudens as well in case and is listed in quallies there. A lot of players have entered both so there will be some withdrawals.
