MANILA, Philippines—Alex Eala looks to spring back from a foot injury as she takes part in the W25 Milovice of the ITF Women’s World Tour at Milten Sport Centrum Milovice in the Czech Republic.

The hardcourt tournament will be held from November 22 to 28 and will have $25,000 cash prize.

Eala is already into the main draw, as per her status as a junior exempt entry, of the tournament that will feature top 300 players from women’s tennis.
