View Full Version : •°o.O·÷±‡± Gabriela Paz Franco ±‡±÷O.o°• New venezuelan rising star

Aug 5th, 2007, 04:08 PM

Well since a few weeks ago I was thinking about making a thread about Gaby and here it is... she is getting some fans and doing pretty well the last weeks so I hope we can talk about her here ....

Something info about her...
She started playing at age 6 in Venezuela, since a few years now she lives and traing in Miami.
She is 15 years all (birthdate 9/30/91 same day as Milly ).
On may she won her first ITF $10000 tournament at El Paso Texas .:worship:
Her WTA ranking this week is 635 in singles and 938 in doubles.
Her Junior ITF Ranking is 76

I have the feeling that we will see great things from her. :bounce:

This week she played the $10000 St Joseph Tournament in Moissouri and lost in the semis so here are the results of this week...

$10,000 St. Joseph, MO (http://www.itftennis.com/womens/tournaments/tournamentoverview.asp?tournament=1100015946)

1st Round def Marilyn Baker 6-1 6-1
2nd Round def Lavinia Tananta 6-2 6-3
QF def Courtney Vernon 6-2 6-2
SF lost to Stacia Fonseca 4-6 6-1 3-6

I hope we can see her play $25K tournaments :)

:bounce: Good Luck Gaby :bounce:

Aug 13th, 2007, 10:37 PM
Esta chica es muy guapa. Espero que tenga mucho éxito en el futuro. :D
Me gustan mucho las venezolanas, pero también Venezuela en general. ;) Soy profesor de español y escribí mi tesis universitaria sobre la literatura venezolana. Analicé dos novelas de Rómulo Gallegos y Teresa de la Parra.
Tengo algunos amigos venezolanos. Me gustaría tanto viajar por el país y ver todos los sitios interesantes, pero todavía no he tenido la oportunidad.
Me encantaría conocer a gente simpática de Venezuela en este foro. En caso de que algunos se sientan aludidos, me alegraría trabar conocimiento con vosotros. :D

Looks like Gaby is going to play at the US Open Junior :):):):)

Una reportera que vio el partido de gaby de primera ronda dijo que la actitud de gaby dejo mucho que desear... parece que Gabriela se tomaba horas entre punto y punto incluso cuando era segundo saque y cuando sacaba su oponente que la dejaba esperando mientras que ella caminaba por la cancha y que eso hizo sacar el partido a la otra chica :sad: la sra dijo que gaby jugo muy bien pero que alguien tiene que ensenarle modales y que los umpires tienen que pararla un poquito xq se desubica mucho :sad:

Durante la semana pasada Gaby estuvo recuperandose de una especie de virus o algo asi q le dio en el torneo que estaba jugando donde se retiro en la primer ronda de la qualy... esperemos q pronto vuelva a las canchas y que manana pase super bien su cumple...

Oct 2nd, 2008, 08:12 PM
Gaby made it to the main draw of the ITF in Troy but lost in the first round...

I posted a while ago some pictures of Gaby from the US Open (the ones she gave me) and some pictures from the Orange Bowl 2007 that I took.

Jan 18th, 2009, 08:28 PM
Gaby won :worship: Defeated Sharon Fichman of Canada in straight sets :)

Her style seems sort of like a counter puncher. Can anyone describe her game to me?

Jan 18th, 2009, 08:57 PM

Mar 3rd, 2009, 03:07 PM
playing 3rd Q in usa.

Mar 5th, 2009, 10:42 AM
The gorgeous Gabriela won her first round against Spears in Florida 75 63 and plays now Heidi El-Taback :yeah:. I can't really explain but I'm feeling really excited and interested in her career. First she is extremely beautiful, I absolutely love her long hair... and even her name is eye-catching! :hearts: Then she is among the most promising youngsters but nobody seems to consider her seriously ... whereas she reached a junior Grand Slam final and secured a 25k title!

I hope she takes as many points as possible in the coming weeks so that she can enter the Q draw of Roland-Garros. I would love to see her Porte d'Auteuil :D. Suerte Gaby!

Mar 6th, 2009, 10:21 PM
Gaby continues her great tournament and enters SF after a 63 64 win over former top 100 player Nakamura!
She faces Karolina Pliskova, should be a contested match but Gaby has more experience. Hope she uses it well!

Mar 7th, 2009, 04:29 AM
Great Tournament For Gaby Paz :)

Mar 7th, 2009, 11:14 PM
Into the final, defeated Karolina Pliskova 64 26 64 :D Excellent win over a talented youngster!!!
Exactly what we wanted, now she will come even closer to breaking top 200. I wonder if she will have a WC for one of the big US tournaments which are coming. With 2 USTA 25k final & the US Open juniors final, it could definitely be possible!

Mar 8th, 2009, 07:04 AM
She should be more recognized IMO. She's shown she can compete well.

Win it all, Gaby!

Mar 8th, 2009, 04:22 PM
Gaby :worship:

Mar 8th, 2009, 09:46 PM
Another title, Gaby defeated Dzehalevich 16 64 75 :banana:
Bravo! A fantastic fight to conclude a very convincing week. It's already her second trophy of the year. Things are going very fast for her... :)

Mar 8th, 2009, 11:20 PM
What a week!

F Paz-Franco (Q) - Dzehalevich 1-6 6-4 7-5
SF Paz-Franco (Q) - Pliskova (Q) 6-2 4-6 6-2
QF Paz-Franco (Q) - Nakamura (6) 6-3 6-4

Gabriela is headed to be a big name! :yeah: :D

Mar 9th, 2009, 02:31 AM
7 matches won :eek: and 2 sets lost. What a week for her :hearts:

Mar 10th, 2009, 08:29 PM
She lives and trains in Miami. Hope she 'll have a WC for Miami =)

Mar 19th, 2009, 03:26 AM
No WC for Gaby. :sad:

I've read she is a bit of a diva but it's good to have players like that. She doesn't seem to be that way off-court.

Mar 19th, 2009, 07:22 AM
maybe she will get a QDWC!

Mar 22nd, 2009, 03:32 AM
Hopefully :hearts: If she does, maybe I will come watch her. Only about 25-30 minutes away. :)

Mar 23rd, 2009, 10:43 PM
She is thru the Hammond's 25K Q and in first round of MD she has Federica Piedade, in 2nR she would be getting Renata Voracova.

Accesible matches IMO.

Mar 24th, 2009, 08:25 AM
Yes I agree! Let's hope she can repeat her spectacular run of the last time here as well!

Thinking about it, it might be a bless in disguise that she wasn't awarded a WC (even though she was so deserving). She has 2 weeks to get herself inside top 200 to be part of Roland-Garros which is sth she can reasonably achieve. Had she made a good match in Miami qualies against one of these seeds but still lost, she would have only had 1 point. Instead, she is going to play 2 US 25.000$ -this one is on hard and the next one on clay- and given her form, I wouldn't want to be her opponents! Does anybody know how good she is on clay?

BTW nobody mentioned that Gaby is 238th this week :hearts:.

Mar 24th, 2009, 09:32 PM
Gaby got through first round in straight sets : 62 76(7). 10th win in a row!!! Is it really useful to say that she is absolutely in a fantastic form? :D

Mar 24th, 2009, 11:36 PM

But i wonder how she would do if shes up to a top player. :shrug:

Voracova should be a nice test for her.

Mar 25th, 2009, 03:34 PM
She is doing great at the moment in the challenger tour but i agree with Jeronimo she should try to play some bigger challengers so she will be able to play against some player with a better ranking than her, Renanta Voracova will be a nice test to see how good she can do?But it will be just a match so we cant make a good point of view just with one match.

I dont particulary think that she will travel to Europe for the clay-season tournaments so her chances to see her name at Roland Garros qualys are not high.Her game suits better on hardcourts and probably on green-glay but for sure she can play on red clay and she can not play her whole carear in the states!

Vamos Gaby :D

Mar 25th, 2009, 10:33 PM
Well Voracova lost to a WC, so a WC will be next Gaby's opponent.

If she goes thru she will face either Esperon or Cravero, both great players IMO.

Mar 25th, 2009, 10:49 PM
Thanks for sharing your views, guys ;) I would just add that Gaby did score impressive wins especially this one in the final against Katya Dzehalevitch who is close to top 150.
The only 'bad' news is that Gaby faces now Ahn who crushed Renata 60 64. So the more serious test is delayed to another encounter...

I still hope that she plays Roland-Garros if ever she gets into the qualifying list. It would be a shame to not play her first ever Grand Slam.

Mar 28th, 2009, 11:16 AM
Gaby lost 76 in the third to Ahn who reached SF. Still a good result in my opinion but I can't help but feeling sad! I mean, all the players I like are crashing out early everywhere they play!

Mar 28th, 2009, 09:44 PM
I know Gaby since she is 13 and with her friends she is not diva at all... she isa girl who likes to dress and look good you know but as I said with friend she is a great person... maybe they think she acts like a diva I don't know for the way she dresses or the way she walks but when she is around her friends she is just a great kid :)

Mar 29th, 2009, 06:24 AM
I think they meant on court. I've listened to her interviews in Spanish and she seems like a nice girl. My parents are from Cuba. :)

And :sad: on her loss. She's played a lot recently so maybe that's part of the reason she lost.

Mar 30th, 2009, 05:13 PM
229. :)

Apr 4th, 2009, 01:58 AM
Gaby received a WC into Qualy Draw at Ponte Vedra Beach :hearts:

[2] Koryttseva vs. Scheepers
Chan vs. [WC] Paz Franco
Kucova vs. Yan
Pivovarova vs. [8] Haynes

Apr 4th, 2009, 04:27 AM
I knew it since she didn't entered the challenger this week.

Chan :scared:
Koryttseva :sad:

Let's see what happens.

Apr 4th, 2009, 09:03 AM
Yeah I noticed you kept on asking who would be WC here! Indeed it was the only reason to explain why she withdrew from this 25k.
You guys told me clay isn't really Gaby's best surface but I quite think this is a good draw. Is it her first WTA event btw? Hope she will have lot of support and get through her first round... Vamos! :)

Apr 4th, 2009, 12:58 PM
Oui, c´est le premiere tournoi pour elle.

c' est vrai que t´habite dans la france?

Apr 4th, 2009, 02:02 PM
D'accord, merci de la précision! Oui, j'habite tout près de Paris, c'est pour ça que j'espère que Gaby sera présente pour les qualifications de Roland-Garros!!
Tu prends des cours de français?

Apr 4th, 2009, 02:45 PM
non, j'ai est allee par la pour aprends le francais le derniere anne au Geneve, bon, pas au Geneve, mais un petit ville dans la france a cote de geneve.

Nan, franchement tu te fais très bien comprendre, bravo! J'espère juste que tu t'es pas trop ennuyé dans cette ville ^^ Sinon, t'habites au Venezuela?

Shame that Gabriela lost again to this Chan. Things were looking so good when I left at *42. She barely held her serve in this match, surely a combination of Asian girls being great retrievers & clay slowing down the speed of serves.
I guess it means no Roland-Garros for Gabriela... Too bad! :sad:

Apr 5th, 2009, 05:34 PM
merciii :lol: franchement g trouve geneve treeeeeeeeeeeeeees jolie, mais oui, maintenant je habite au Venezuela.

et le meilleur chose ce le ski tout les weekends :D

Apr 5th, 2009, 09:16 PM
I didn't know she was playing in Ponte Vedra Beach, I'm sad she lost but it's time for her to be playing some WTA tournaments.

I hope she can be a really good player in the future, we need one in Venezuela and I thought she'd get a wildcard in Miami...but she is very talented and a friend of mine met her in Miami, and says she's a great persona....so I hope she's into the top 200 very soon

Apr 11th, 2009, 03:18 PM
Gaby is playing the qualies in Charleston. She going against Anna Tatishvili (5) in the first round, if she wins here she has many chances to qualify becuase she would go against Melanie Oudin or Danielle Mills

Apr 11th, 2009, 07:40 PM
Well she lost 76 63 :sad:...she was trailing 5-2 in the first set and she got to the tie-break but she could have won, but she was having a hard time winning points on her second serve...

Apr 12th, 2009, 08:16 AM
Poor shrieky Gaby :sad: She still needs to improve on clay! Keep on trying!

Apr 12th, 2009, 02:48 PM
Unfortunately Gaby doesn't intend to play RG or any other tournaments outside USA this year :(

Apr 12th, 2009, 07:12 PM
Why is she staying in the USA? Is she studying there?

Apr 14th, 2009, 04:08 PM
Thanks for the news! I will be patient then :(

Apr 15th, 2009, 10:58 PM
Why is she staying in the USA? Is she studying there?

As far as I know she is not studying, she finished high school last year... it's just easier and cheaper for her to play here She will be at the US Open for sure :)

Apr 30th, 2009, 10:34 AM
I hope she comes to Europe as soon as possible.

May 10th, 2009, 03:40 PM
Does someone here know why Gabriela hasn't been playing lately? is she injured?

May 31st, 2009, 04:36 PM
no news?

Is Gaby alright? :sad:

Jul 9th, 2009, 01:17 AM

Jul 11th, 2009, 12:56 AM
She is in the list for Stanford, and i hope she gets a QWC for the Open.

Jul 16th, 2009, 01:13 PM
Gaby is injured that's why she hasn't played in a long time

Jul 30th, 2009, 10:33 PM
I miss following her results. :sad:

I think a US Open QWC would be very appropriate!

Aug 1st, 2009, 02:48 PM
Gaby is training again.... It would be great if she gets a wild card for the US Open qualy but she is not American so it will be difficult :sad:

Aug 5th, 2009, 02:19 AM
Gaby is training again.... It would be great if she gets a wild card for the US Open qualy but she is not American so it will be difficult :sad:

She reached last year junior final, so I think she deserves it and I think if she hadn't got injured, she would have been ranked enough to be in the entry list for the qualies

She is playing really well. Saw a couple of matches last week and she is playing more agressive than she used to play before the injury. With a good shedule and good results I could see her into Us Open Q (it looks far now but she has the skill!)

Keep going Gaby :dance:

A continuación, les vamos a contar la historia de la tenista venezolana Gabriela Paz, quien actualmente está en busca de sponsors que le permitan regresar al circuito una vez más. Gaby tiene 21 años, fue top ten juniors y llegó a la final del US Open Jr. Alcanzó su mejor ranking WTA (230°) a los 17 años, pero las lesiones interrumpieron, en forma reiterada, su inminente ascenso en el circuito WTA. Las condiciones tenísticas las tiene y las demostró en cada retorno, pero en estos momentos es indispensable el apoyo económico, uno de los principales problemas del tenis femenino latinoamericano.

Contanos acerca de tu historia en el Tenis...

Yo me vine a los Estados Unidos a los 12 años y empecé a jugar los torneos junior cuando tenía 14. No tenía ninguna ayuda financiera para viajar, mi papá trabaja en construcción y él hacia lo imposible para que yo pudiera viajar. Pero aún así, mis viajes tenían que ser limitados y lamentablemente tenía que viajar sola desde muy temprana edad. Aparte de eso, tuvimos muchos problemas para que nos dieran la residencia y no pude salir del país por mucho tiempo, de hecho toda mi carrera junior la jugue aquí, en Estados Unidos, porque no podía salir. No pude jugar ningún otro Grand Slam, solo el US Open. Obviamente, los torneos junior que habían aquí no eran muchos, si recuerdo bien yo jugaba como 7 al año, algo así y con eso logré ponerme 10 del mundo en juniors.

Fuiste Top Ten Juniors y jugaste la Final del US Open de esa categoría, ¿qué significó ese torneo para vos?

Llegar a la final del US Open fue lo máximo, no sólo por el hecho, sino por todo lo que tuve que pasar para llegar ahí! Viajar sola por falta de recursos fue muy duro, porque solo era una niña. Además, el nivel de Estados Unidos es mucho más alto y yo solo podía jugar aquí. Las americanas, obviamente, tenían todos los privilegios y yo siempre tuve que trabajar muy duro para obtener lo que quería. Así que llegar a la final del US Open, ganándole a todas las mejores jugadoras junior del mundo de ese momento, fue sumamente gratificante para mi. Después de eso, hubo gente interesada en ayudarme financieramente, pero no tuve suerte y no se dio, todo salió mal.

Hace más de 1 año jugaste tu último partido profesional, ¿qué ocurrió con tu carrera?

Tuve que seguir viajando sin recursos ya empezando el circuito profesional. Recuerdo que el primer futuro que jugué, lo gané y fue increíble. Me estaba yendo súper bien, gané dos de 25K el mismo año aquí en USA, me puse 230°, sin todavía poder salir del país. Lamentablemente, ese mismo año cuando estaba en el tope, me salió un tumor en la tibia y me tuvieron que operar para sacármelo, gracias a Dios era benigno, pero eso me tuvo afuera del tour por un año. Después de eso, volví al tour, logré ponerme 290° otra vez y se me fracturó un sesamoide del pie, no pude jugar por 6 meses, obviamente perdí mi ranking otra vez, pero el año pasado empecé de cero otra vez y en 6 meses me logré poner 270°, ya gracias a Dios me dieron mi residencia y pude ir a Brasil y a Canadá. Lamentablemente en Agosto, por desgaste de viajar sola y no poder viajar con un coach o mi trainer, se me desgarró un músculo en el hombro y me operaron. Todo este año me he solamente recuperado y asegurado de que esté 100% para poder volver.

Te estás preparando para regresar en Diciembre, pero no contás con recursos financieros y estás buscando ayuda, ¿esto es así? ¿cómo pueden ayudarte?

Como ya les he comentado, he tenido muchos problemas financieros que me han limitado muchísimo y la verdad que sin ayuda se hace súper difícil, porque ésta es una carrera costosa. Ya estoy entrenando otra vez y me siento muy bien, tengo planeado volver en Diciembre. Pero necesito ayuda económica para poder volver a hacerlo. Yo creo que en un año, viajando con mi entrenador de verdad, me puedo poner otra vez con un muy buen ranking. Ya para poder jugar los Grand Slams.

¿Cómo describirías tu juego? ¿Qué representa el Tenis para vos? ¿Cuáles son tus sueños?

Yo soy una jugadora agresiva, me gusta moverme, y pegarle a la pelota temprano.El tenis es a lo que me dedico y es mi vida. Mi meta es llegar a estar top 20 del mundo y sé que lo puedo lograr con apoyo.
