Congrats Gisela on your 4th singles title and the number one in doubles . Should have been easier though (needed 4 MPs ). Aranxa

Acapulco Final: [4]Dulko def. [6]Parra-Santonja 63 76(5).

Gisela
Despite the amazing choke she had in the second set , well played, the net game again, was amazing, saving BPs with drops was great. The returns of serve were good, passing, all was good.
Arantxa was nervous, I think. She started missing some easy points at the beginning of the match, then she picked her game up a little and the match was pretty competitive, she had some power in her strokes and her serve isn't a mess, she barely moonballs, that was nice for the match.
First Argentinian player to win Acapulco (In WTA).

^That was when Gisela was using her brain, in fact all this is true, but come on, the choke was amazing . Gisela serving for it at 5-1 then she brainfarted and suddenly we were watching a different match, Parra was hitting so clean and hard and spreading winners like a fucking machine, then she was up 6-5 40-00 . Like a miracle, Gisela's brain started to work and she saved those set points with some amazing deep shots.
In the tiebreak Gisela was 3-0 up then her brain pooped and was 3 all. Arantxa was so erratic. At the final, the worst choker lost.

Acapulco F: (4) Dulko d. (6) Parra Santonja 63 76(5)

Oh. My. God.
Legendary choking by Gisela.
She gets up *51 in the second...and somehow manages to get down 56* 40-0 on APS serve in a matter of 15 minutes. Saves all 3 SPs and then blows 3-0 in the TB to 3-3 and then blows 6-3 but finally closed it out 7-5.

Uhm..congrats on title #4?

And the dish ran away with the spoon..
but Hawaii was the only state that would recognize the marriage as legal.

Dulko's nervous has always been a problem to close matches. She did it and no more to say, CONGRATS MY PRETTY GIRL.
