Alizé Cornet is a talented and very emotional player, with enough jubilation, wails of protest, and crazy meltdowns to make her brand of tennis enormously entertaining. TEH DRAMAZ can be very high during a match, but it’s a bit more subtle and goofy on the practice courts.
We captured the feisty Frenchwoman early in the tournament, practicing with Bulgaria’s Tsvetana Pironkova. While we only stayed a short while, we got to see a range of emotions from glee to angst to…let’s call it awed confusion.
Alizé has an extensive collection of skimpy practice wear, and some fans may be disappointed she’s so covered up here. Trust us, she’s still totally hot.
We also got a kick out of Alizé’s serve, preserved here for posterity.
When Alizé smacks down a serve, she gets an extremely intense expression on her face…and then the angst floods back in.
Don’t worry, Alizé, we’re sure the ball was in!
