Alize plays Kirilenko today in the first round-robin match in Sofia. Alize has never lost to Maria, and she needs this win this match to have any chance here. Alize has never beaten the other two players, Halep and Pavlyuchenkova, in her group. Good luck!
If you check the scores of Halep's matches in Sofia, you'll see the sets she played with Alizé were the most close. Stosur and Ivanovic may have taken a set to Halep, but lost the two others without winning more than 2 games for each. Alizé took 4 games in each set. She played well, and she could even play better.
I admire Alizé. She's a great fighter, and gives everything. She's worth the title of French number one in the paths of Marion.
