Re: AKGUL! The Gentle Giant's Wildly Enthusiastic Fan Zone

I also think Elena will be too solid for her. But then again I also thought Schnyder would crush her in Bangalore and she came so close to beating her. Anything can happen, I just hope she believes in herself tomorrow.

2016 Titles:
Tennis Tipping: (S) ITF Toronto | (D) Dalian (w/ Nottheone), ITF Bendigo (w/ Randy)
Suicide: Strasbourg, Tashkent, Hong Kong

Re: AKGUL! The Gentle Giant's Wildly Enthusiastic Fan Zone

Akgul plays against Yanina Wickmayer in the first round of Roland Garros tomorrow, it should be a tough match but I think Akgul can get through it.

2016 Titles:
Tennis Tipping: (S) ITF Toronto | (D) Dalian (w/ Nottheone), ITF Bendigo (w/ Randy)
Suicide: Strasbourg, Tashkent, Hong Kong

Amanmuradova d. Wickmayer 6-2 7-5

Nice job to finish it off quick.
Now against Wozniak tomorrow, a win is not out of the question...

Re: AKGUL! The Gentle Giant's Wildly Enthusiastic Fan Zone

Wow, top 50! Amazing Akgul! What an improbable story. They should make a movie!

And she's still only at the beginning of her excellent adventure in the WTA ...

Re: AKGUL! The Gentle Giant's Wildly Enthusiastic Fan Zone

Is this really Akgul?

http://www.facebook.com/srch.php?nm=Akgul+Amanmuradova

I ask because she has an ‘Iroda Tulyaganova’ as a friend, so I’m guessing if Akgul’s profile is genuine, that pretty much guarantees Iroda’s profile.

Yes, that is really hers. I have communicated with her before using Facebook so I'm pretty sure it's real.

Thanks If I'm going to ask her to marry me, I've got to make sure it's the real Iroda, and not some flat chested, hairy arsed imposter.
