Thanks, Elisse. That's fantastic. I'll spend more time checking out her site in the next few days; I had trouble getting the photos to come up for me.

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

Hi janie - thanks so much to you too!!! Good to hear that you'll be spending some time on the website! About the gallery...sorry about that, please give it a chance to load though because of the heavy graphics, it works best on a fast connection but usually it works fine (I admit the other day it was a bit slow for me, I think the server was having problems ) It seems to be loading fine at the moment though! (Let me know if you are still having problems and I'll try come up with a solution)

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

At the moment, we have about 400 photos in the gallery - including my own photos that I took at RG, Wimbledon, Poitiers and Dubai this year (still have LOADS more of my own photos to upload though )

And newly added today some photos and a great little video taken by a friend of mine at Ponte Vedre last week

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

I looked at the Dubai pics today and had no problems at all, so, you were right, Elisse, it was probably just a temporary glitch. Very nice pics! Such cute close-ups of Akgul's face when she's smiling, laughing, etc. These are some of the best Akgul photos I've ever seen, and I've been following her for a few years now. Thanks a lot for your hard work.

Akgul's first-round opponent in Charleston is wild card Alexandra Stevenson. Stevenson is not a very good player, but last year she did well in Charleston, so she's going to be feeling good going into this. Akgul's the exact opposite; she's had a rough start to her season, as everyone here knows, so she's probably not feeling too confident right now. She'll also have the crowd against her (if there is much of a crowd for round 1!) She really needs to get her serve going and do everything possible to keep Alex out of position as much as possible. Keep on your toes, Akgul! You can win this one but you'll have to stay sharp and not let Alex get on a roll. But even if she does get on a roll, don't let up; you can still knock her off it, so fight very hard till the last point is over -- Alex might retire!

Woohoo, Akgul won! I didn't really expect it. Straight sets, too: a convincing 62 64 in 1 hr 22 minutes. 4 aces, only 2 DFs. Keep going, Akgul! Maybe this is the week you'll hit your stride.

Akgul was injured in Dothan and had to withdraw from the 50K in Charlottesville this week.

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

Just come back from Madrid Saw Akgul play a few times there and got loads of new photos for the website!!! Also took some little videos of her too. Here is a video from her first practise session in Madrid....



Saw her matches there - she was awesome in the qualies, she played with such confidence and totally demolished Ana Bogdan in the QR2 Weather conditions for that match were terrible! Raining, windy....in fact it was so windy the clay was blowing everywhere....as bad as a sand-storm..couldn't see NOTHING! Finally play started and she just handled the conditions so well!!!

Also saw her R1 match against Lourdes Dominguez Lino...what a match! It was so close! Honestly Akgul played the best of the two....she played some of the most amazing tennis!!! Lourdes was luckier with the line calls etc... and that was what made the difference. Felt so proud of her and proud to be there supporting her!!!

btw - Only got the videos online at the moment, hoping to get the new pics online sometimes this week!!
