Re: Simone Alipieva
Some news about Simone...
She's won two ITF junior doubles titles so far in 2013 (Vasteras, Sweden, in January, and Oslo, Norway in February). But she still lacks a bit of form in singles and has not gone beyond QF so far in 2013. Played a good close match last week in Sweden against Verena Hofer, who eventually won the tournament (Hofer won 76(6) 64 in the QF against Simone).
Simone is ranked #396 this week - a new career high.
She's playing at Kramfors, Sweden, this week (Grade 4):
(1) Simone Alipieva (DEN) d. (WC) Julia Keranovic (SWE) 6-1 6-0
Simone's opponent in R2 is Verena Hofer!
