Cornet to face former Wimbledon champion in first round in Eastbourne
We know that Alize Cornet is a clay star in the making, but how does she do on what we may consider the opposite surface? She plays former Wimbledon champion Amelie Mauresmo in the first round of the International Women's Open in Eastbourne next week. Mauresmo, of course, is as down and out as she has ever been. Months off of the tour because of surgery and surgery-induced injury has all but crushed the elegant Frenchwoman. Is there an upset in the making? Or will Amelie put her feet on the grass and start to feel better right away? I know which option I want.
