Alijah finds her feet on clay


Alijah Pemovic has come back to winning form today in the SNAI Open, Palermo. Alijah defeated 2nd seed Luna-Willow Bartoli 76 67 76. And just today she has defeated her doubles partner Yanina Wickmayer 26 62 76. We caught up with Alijah

Alijah, congrats on your win today, when you lost the first set what were you thinking?

Well, of course I was disappointed when I lost the first set, I could have done much more with it, I found my feet in the second and just edged Yanina out.

Your next round opponent, G. Benedetti. How do you think you will go against her?

Well I think I have played her once or twice or it was her sister A. Benedetti. She was also pushed to three tight sets. I hope I can recover good today and play well tomorrow.

What do you think of Yanina Wickmayer?

Well I do find her strange, you know if she was Belgian why did she move to Chinese? Does she know how to speak Chinese?

How about your pregnancy you revealed last week

Well Its really weird, It sometimes annoy me, Im putting on weight.....

Good luck with your match tomorrow

Thanks :)

Jul 16th, 2011, 03:36 PM
Yes... I do speak Chinese

Cristina-Elena Vladimirescu def. [5]Siri Cornetsson 0/6, 6/1, 7/6(2)
Cristina stops Siri's winning streak at 6 and finally regroups from her finale loss at Wimbledon.

[4][WC]Giuseppina Benedetti def. Alijah Pemovic 7/6(3), 6/4
Giusa hasn't had this feeling of success lately but the Palermo crowd has been behind their native girl including this win against Alijah.

[1]Cornetsson/Johnson def. [5]Nemayeva/Perez 6/2, 7/6(4)
Vittoria and Anastasia need to win these matches to move to the levels of Harper and Siri.

[2]Bartoli/Kartincova def. [7]Hingisafrilia/Pryde-Degman 7/6(5), 6/7(4), 7/6(5)
Martine and Luna have been in a serious slump so it's nice to see them in a final, although there were lots of fans cheering for Fleri after her surgery. :hug:

[1]Cornetsson/Johnson def. [2]Bartoli/Kartincova 7/5, 3/6, 7/5
Harper and Siri have an outstanding chance at becoming #1 in doubles by years end with Ruflina's recent slump. They improve their chances today by defeating Luna and Martine.
