There are only 16 seeds at Indian Wells...Alize will not be one of them. Alize plays a qualifier in the first round and then Wozniacki in the second. Her ranking will likely take a hit the next two weeks, she has a lot of points to defend next week from her finals run at the 100,000+ ITF Nassau tourney last year (a tournament that is now gone). Alize needs to beat Wozniacki just to defend her Indian Wells points from last year, and will need to get to the fourth round to avoid losing most of the points she won in the Bahamas last year. She has never done very well at Indian Wells, but hopefully this will give her extra inspiration and she will make a good run.
Alize beat Robson in Miami 5-7, 7-5, 6-1. More good news is that Azarenka withdrew, so her third round opponent is a lucky loser Lauren Davis. I think she has an opportunity to win a few more matches here.
The match was delayed by rain twice, and a power outage as well, and didn't end until after 10pm. I think the delays helped Alize, she served terribly in the first set. Robson was all over her second serve. The score was only close because Robson played equally poorly. At the end of the first set Alize asked to see her coach and was very upset, crying. Something happened during the delay and she really turned it around. She will play her third round match on Sunday.
