Interview with Gisela Dulko

Congratulations for pulling it out. What happened in the second set?
Well, I think in the first set she was making a lot of mistakes. She started to play better in the second and I don't know, I went to the moon a little bit. I lost my concentration, that was the difference in the second set.

Do you know how many aces you hit today?
No, I don't know but I served really well.

In that last game you were love 40 on your serve...
Yeah, I know. Then I served 3 aces. They saved my life I think.

What goes through your head in a situation like that. Do you think, I'm going to hit an ace now or what?
No, you just try to hit the ball strong and hit the side line. I was lucky, they went in.

I've watched you play in the past. This is the strongest I've ever seen you hit your serves. Is this a part of your game that has gotten better?
I have been practicing a lot on my serve. I've improved my serve a lot.

What are you doing at the moment? You're playing more pro events, right?
This year I can play 13. I will try to play more professionals. Anyway, I will be playing juniors.

Are you going to the French Open?
Yes, I will be playing the qualifying because I don't have a good ranking yet. And in the second week juniors.

You might get a wild card.
I have one more wild card left. I've already used two wild cards and I don't know which tournament I will use it for.

Are you disappointed there are no doubles at this event?
I like to play doubles and was disappointed there are no doubles..... but, it's OK.

You have always had a strong doubles game but now it seems your singles is getting stronger. Is that correct?
Yes, I like to play both. I prefer singles but I have better results in doubles. That is what I want to do in my future; play singles.

You used to play a lot with Maria Emilia Salerni, now she is pro. Are you ever going to play again with her?
Probably, if I get the ranking that she has. If she played with me now she wouldn't get in the tournament.

She's a little bit older then you
Yes, two years
