Like a volcano, Alizé Cornet can stay quiet and unnoticed for a while, but when she erupts, she can make some serious noise and damages. Sweet and calm off-court, the ground starts shaking when she steps on-court. When she explodes, she explodes. The display of emotions can become out of control; she lets it all out. Behind it, there is a game that is the product of years of hard work and experience. Her return of serve is lava-hot, and she has one of the best defensive games on tour. She can run right and left: there isn’t a ball she can’t return. Her intensity brought her on the edge of the WTA Top 10 eleven years ago, as she reached a career-high ranking of No. 11. She is now ranked No. 59 in the world, with an incredible thirteen consecutive Top 100 season streak.Watch live
