Hopman Cup: Schiavone def. Dulko 6-1, 6-3

What a boring match. Hope Gisela can play less nervous next time. Congrats girls on the first WTA match of the year!!!

I saw the match... Gisela was awfully inconsistent. Forehand was awful... waaaay too many UE's (46), serve percentage was too low...

ok. consider the fact that it's the first match of the year and maybe you'll see why it's not pathetic. Maybe she just wasn't so used at the conditions, maybe she was nervous. You don't know. So don't call her pathetic just because you think so, maybe she'll play better later in the week. I hope so, I hope the next match she plays will be better. Besides, you didn't even see the match, it could've been a close match anyway....

It was Schiavone first match as well. It's disappointing

Gisela produced 46 UF errors in total + 3 double faults!!! Poor performance by her....
However, its her first match for the season, and the first time she plays in Hopman Cup against Francesca who hasn't lost a singles match in here before.... It's understandable!!

I watched Gisela for the first time, and it was very disappointing, especially since she played a first good game to break. She lacked any margin for error, didn't give any loop and kept making unforced errors as a result.

Fortunately, I also watched her mixed doubles, and she was a completely new player. She was very impressive... outhit David in a couple of baseline rallies, and came up with some nice angled passing shots. The girl has some game.

in her interview gisela said she was very happy with her tennis after the mixed doubles match. her forehand in particular was brilliant, she barely missed and had superb angles, volleys, shot choices, the lot!!! she seemed to return davids serve even better than she did francesca.

my point. dont put too much emphasis on her fuirst match if the year against francesca. tge first set lasted only about 20 mins and the match was over b4 she could get things in to gear.

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!
