I did always say, that Alison was borderline for getting into the main draw and it would probably come down to the wire one way or the other. Glad it went Alison's way and she squeeked into the main draw. That said, honestly I might have actually prefered her to play qualifying if they didn't reduce the amount of ranking points qualifiers make so radically, from 60 all the way down to 40. That's a big difference.
Hoping now for a decent draw in the 1st round.
