:sad: Good run though.

Much closer than the scoreline suggests, Anna wasn't able to take her chances. She served poorly for most of the match too, which didn't help. Overall there were some good signs, she continued to fight after huge mental lapses, but Cornet is tough on clay and no one honestly expected Anna to win.

I'm so glad that she looks like shes getting back on track. Does anyone have recent pictures of her? I'm curious to see her physical condition.

ALG looks like she's lost some weight :yeah:

You know, Cornet has done really well on clay this year, and this is ALG's first main draw event of the year, so good for the both of them.

Does anyone know what other main draw events ALG will play this year? It's nice seeing her come back. I'd love to see her ex-coach eat his words.

An expected result really, but congrats to ALG on reaching a WTA QF again cos to be honest I didn't think she would. The way ALG is playing she'll be back in the top 100 very soon:).

Congrats Alize:)!

:sad: Good run though.
but Cornet is tough on clay and no one honestly expected Anna to win.

no onne??:scratch:dont think so especially since gronfeld beat safarova in the previous round,many expected a revival of the former roland garros quarter finalist and a beatdown against cornet:p

well cngrats alize tough match especially whenyou are the favorite to winthis tournament.That is the first time she is in that position.
So congrats and good next match:yeah:

Still an excellent win for Anna-Lena :)

I'm so happy that she seems to be regaining form.

Does anyone know where this has all come from? Is it just pure hard work and perseverance or has there been some kind of change in her life/coaching?

I haven't heard anything of her personal life for a while.


Well done, Alizé. After a disappointing Wimbledon, I'd love to see her take the title here :dance:

Alizé is the 2nd seed and Anna-Lena is not a WC ;)


Still good tourney to ALG and shows she's capable of competing in WTA events.

Glad to see Anna-Lena back. Hope she keeps it going. She is one of the nicest players on tour so it's easy to root for her.

Good to see Alize back at the end of the week in a tournament too. She went 2-3 between the French and Wimbledon after having an amazing Spring.
