True. The exhibition this year has way a stronger field than in previous years which in part is great as well as it will be a great challenge for Gisela in order to know if she's ready to beat top players.

Good luck Gise!

Re: Hong Kong Tennis Classic 2010

watched a few training sessions on the outside courts before entering the stadium. Wozniacki was hitting with Dulko, and they played a practice set. I didn’t see all of it, but what I saw was that Wozniacki was actually taking initiative, moving Dulko around the court, and finishing the point off at the net. From the little I saw I must say she doesn’t play like a pusher – at least in practice. Dulko’s forehand was fairly solid but she couldn’t do much once forced on the defence.
