As a WC at Carlsbad $721K, she reached the 2nd rd ousting n°42 Makarova (dropping only 3 games
) before losing to 2nd seed/n°11 Petkovic. At Cincinnati $2,02M, she made it to the MD as a qualifer beating 11th seed/n°62 Johansson and 1"rd seed/n°64 Mirza. 15th seed/n°17 Ivanovic was to strong for her in the 1rst rd of the MD.
However, this is a good summer for Alexa.
As far as Ashley is concerned, steading ranking (3 spots lost). she made it to the MD at Carlsbad before losing to n°57 Arvidsson.
