Alizé LIM
I am surprised no one started a thread yet to support her :).

Alizé LIM was born on 13/07/1990 according to her ITF biography.

She obtained her first international ranking this summer, after her good results in Morocco (Casablanca + Rabbat x 2).

She is ranked #950 this week , but will without doubt move up in the future.

She is playing this week (01 Sep to 07 Sep 2008) the $10,000 Brasov (Romania).

All the best to her :D

Alizé LIM is planned next week (08 Sep to 14 Sep 2008) in the $10,000 Innsbruck (first choice).
She is currently #1 in the qualifying list.

Her likely tournament the week after (15 Sep to 21 Sep 2008) would be the $10,000 Limoges (first choice). She stands #4 in the qualifying list.

Tough results in Brasov and Innsbruck where she lost in the 1st round.
Limoges qualifyings are starting this week. She is seeded #2 in the qualifyings and will face Laura ROBSON (GBR) for a place in the main draw.
Her next tournament will be $10,000 Clermont Ferrand (22 Sep to 28 Sep 2008).

She lost to Robson 6/2 6/0. Tough loss but Robson is one of the favorites for the title.

Thanks for the update :) .

Robson must indeed be confident after winning the Wimbledon junior title this year.

Well, all the best to Alizé LIM in Clermont Ferrand, since she is not playing doubles in Limoges.

Re: Alizé LIM
Alizé LIM was in Joue-Les-Tours Qualifying Draw but lost in the first round to Elixane LECHEMIA. Elixane is now in the final round of the qualifyings.

Tough draw, but a good experience as it is Alizé LIM first $50k tournament.

All the best to her in her next tournaments.

Re: Alizé LIM
Alizé LIM is in $100,000 Poitiers 2008 qualifying entry list
Dates : 20 Oct to 26 Oct 2008

She is chosing tough tournaments.

All the best to her.

Re: Alizé LIM
Alizé LIM is still in Poitiers qualifying list but not in the qualifying draw. She must have forgotten to withdraw, which will probably mean another fine (USD 150 I believe)

Bad news for her, but good news for Magalie GIRARD who was 1st in the alternates list and won one round in the qualifying draw = 1 ranking point :)

Re: Alizé LIM
On the French ranking side (for those who understand this complicated system), Alizé LIM is now ranked "-30", which is the last step before a "Promotion" national ranking (and "Première serie").
There are in 2009 :
. "Première série" : 21 players (N1 to N20)
. "Promotion" : 18 players (N21 to N37, with 2 x N37 this year)
. "-30" : approximately 26 players (number of "-30" in 2008 rankings)

2009 Première Série List :

2009 Promotion List :
