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

It turns out Akgul is playing dubs! I saw her name on LiveScore just now -- she's paired with Wozniacki! They're playing doubles veterans Vivi and Ana Isabela MG right now.

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

^^ Thanks for the picture. Any info about it would help.

===============

Since I haven't had time to write up our interview yet, schedule news FYI is that Akgul will play Amelia Island, then (does not play Charleston) she goes back home to Uzbekistan for a little while, then to Fed Cup matches against Slovakia. She is very happy that her country's team made this Fed Cup and very proud to play for her country.

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

Akgul plays Jill Craybas in the first round of Amelia Island.

Very tough first round draw, for sure.

Good luck Akgul!

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

Jill is about 90 years old. Akgul should be fine

Zuzana Ondraskova is the best player in the history of tennis.

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

That's a tough loss -- 2 tiebreak sets! Still, not a bad effort against such a steady player as Craybas.
