New sensation in Belgian tennis

Well, as of today we have a new sensation in women's tennis. A Flemish-speaking 21-year-old player, Alison Van Uytvanck, has just reached the quarter finals at Roland Garos.

Born in Vilvoorde (where I worked some years ago) in 1994), tennis soon became her hobby. Alison studied at the Flemish tennis academy and is trained by Ann Devries, a former player turned coach. She has always shown promise, but only now her full capacities seems to show off. She plays right-handed but also has a two-handed backhand. And she can do a lot more than just hit the ball hard...

So perhaps after Kim Clijsters and Justine Henin, we'll have another good player who's able to win a Grand Slam tournament?
