Gisela will be seeded 3rd because Lucie is ahead of Gisela by the April 24th rankings.

Good Luck Gisela, time to turn the season around.

Gise is the 2nd seeded now because Lucie Safarova pulled out late with a shoulder injury.

Gise is the 2nd seeded now because Lucie Safarova pulled out late with a shoulder injury.

I know so sad for Lucie that she doesn't get the chance to try and defend her first title:sad:

Gisela, take advantage of the opportunity.

Creo que Gisela es favorita en el partido contra Yan pero en mi opinion el juego de las asiaticas a ella no le gusta porque al ser tan irregular gisela las chinas le pasan pelotitas y mas pelotitas que termina perdiendo la paciencia, esto el ocurrio contra Jie Zheng, Asagoe, Tanasugrand y demas. Esperemos que este fina en sus golpes y pueda dar lo mejor

Mucha Suerte Gisela¡

I`ve heard some gossip about Gisela...
Well, according to what Guillermo Salatino (Argentine journalist) said today on TV, it seems that gise and tommy robredo broke up. Reason? no idea...
Preety sad, since they were a nice couple...

Good week in doubles, & I also think in singles as Na Li plays well in Estoril so not surprising Gisela lost to her and she did get a couple of wins again.

Sad about Gisela and Tommy but if it is true then it could explain her recent inconsistent results as I have always thought if things are happening off court it is hard for a player to play well.

I've been wondering for a while...Gisela and Tommy seemed very happy and it was great they both play tennis and whatever...but if they were to break up then it would be even tougher than usual as they are both in the spotlight and would still have to see and hear about each other on a daily basis!
Hopefully Gisela can regroup and have a good French Open campaign...and maybe back playing with Maria Kirilenko...
