BIRMINGHAM, England - Alison Riske takes us on a tour of the Aegon Classic, heading to the practice courts, the eating and shopping area and, of course, the match courts at the Premier stop.

Riske has had some of her biggest breakthroughs at Birmingham - in fact, until Wimbledon last year, the American had never even won a WTA main draw match at any other event, going 11-4 at Birmingham and 0-14 everywhere else. But since Wimbledon last year she has broken through just about everywhere else, and just this week she set a career-high ranking of No.40 in the world.

She has improved to 13-4 lifetime at the Aegon Classic with two wins already this week, coincidentally against a pair of sisters - Lyudmyla Kichenok in the first round, Nadiia Kichenok second round.
