I love her draw!!! She must defeat Emmanuelle, Elena and on hard she can beat Sybille :D Maria Elena is playing singles too, so they'll play doubles together.

Sep 19th, 2007, 03:56 PM
The suspension of the match helped Gisela definetely because Emmanuelle was serving 2-1 in the first serve. Apparently Gisela came back to the court with more confidence and consistency.

Well done, Gise! :D

Sep 19th, 2007, 04:11 PM

Gisela se iluminó

Dulko venció a la suiza Gagliardi por 6-3 y 6-4 en la reanudación del partido de primera ronda del Abierto de Eslovenia que ayer se había suspendido por falta de luz. La próxima rival de la tigrense será la rusa Vesnina, quien superó en tres sets a la local Hercog.

Gisela Dulko, la tenista número uno de Argentina, se clasificó hoy para los octavos de final del Abierto de Eslovenia, que se juega en Portoroz y reparte premios por 145 mil euros, tras superar por 6-3 y 6-4 a la suiza Emanuelle Gagliardi en un partido que ayer se había suspendido por falta de luz.

Dulko, ubicada en el puesto 43 del ranking mundial de la WTA, se mostró muy sólida para superar a una jugadora irregular como la suiza Gagliardi (120). La argentina jugará en octavos de final ante la rusa Elena Vesnina (58), quien hoy debió exigirse más de lo previsto para ganarle por 6-3, 6-7 (6-8) y 6-4 a la local Polona Hercog (395).

Dulko ganó este año sus dos primeros títulos de la WTA, en Budapest y Forest Hills. En Portoroz, la máxima favorita al título es la francesa Tatiana Golovin (19).

Sep 19th, 2007, 11:04 PM
Estoy tan contento de saber que ya hay dos argentinas en el top 100 y se acerca a pasos agigantados la tercera, Jorgi. Hablando sobre Gisela, creo que no es un partido fácil pero con Gigi nunca se sabe así que habrá que esperar hasta la última pelota.

(7) Gisela Dulko (ARG) d. Elena Vesnina (RUS) 76(3) 61

Gisela fired 6 aces (she closed the match with one of those) and made just four doubles faults. I'm happy to know this because her serve is her weakness shot but she served very well today.

Gisela played a weird match. Took the first set in a tiebreak, dropped the second set too easily and in the last one Bammer won 10 points :eek:

Good luck Gisela against Kata in her home :scared:

Gise! :bounce:
Simply fantastic! :)

Sep 22nd, 2007, 11:15 AM
Hey guys!

I watched and cheered for Gisela in every match this week, also talked to her a bit (told her to go and play Gold Coast for lollipop guy :tape: ), I'll put something up, a report and tons of pics, when I get back home.

Going to the semi now to cheer for her! :rocker2:

Sep 22nd, 2007, 12:35 PM
Gisela played a great match. And she's looking awesome :lick: :hearts:

She has a great forehand, she isn't even close to playing typical spanish game, her forehand is really big, because she can play from side to side to, the direction of her groundstrokes is great. I watched most of her match against Vesnina, and it was really impressive. She was very calm on the court, and she didn't miss many shots.

But this time I think I'll be rooting against her for once. She's playing Srebotnik, and I want Srebotnik to win the title :p

But good luck anyway to her :D

Sep 22nd, 2007, 12:50 PM
That's what she said:

"It's my lucky 3rd time, that's how we say it in Argentina, and it was obviously meant for me to win today.I was close in Pattaya already, but I didn't take advantage of the 3 match points.After the first set, I let off, like I was in a cramp, and Sybille took advantage of it, so at 0:4, I already was thinking about the third set.I relaxed in the 3rd set, at the start of the set already, I found my game and played an attackive game until the end."

"Another tough match for me against Srebotnik.Katarina is a great player, home favourite, she's had a great season, and the crowd will be on her side.But I am surprised about the amount of people that has cheered for me and I hope that there will be some there tomorrow."

Sybille said that Gisela was simply better today, and that she wants to return next year, when it will be a claycourt tournament.


Sep 22nd, 2007, 01:57 PM
I will be cheering for Gisela today even if she's playing Katarina. :tape: She deserves all the support she can get especially with the way crowd will be cheering for Katarina, I just hope it won't get to her and she'll be able to play her game.

Sep 22nd, 2007, 05:17 PM
Gisela lost 2-6 3-6 :sad:

Sep 22nd, 2007, 05:48 PM
Nice tournament, anyway :crying2:

Sep 22nd, 2007, 06:15 PM
Gise :bigcry: It seems that Katarina was playing really well. :sad: Great tournament though, beating Vesnina and Gagliardi in straight sets and having her revenge against Bammer. :worship:

She won't be playing Luxembourg, unfortunately she was only one spot away from the main draw, but nobody withdrew and she couldn't arrive on time to play the qualies. :awww: So I think her next tournament is Stuttgart. :) Best of luck Gise!!! :kiss:

Sep 22nd, 2007, 09:26 PM
Gise :sad:
Great tournament anyway!
Good luck in the next tournament! :D
