Re: Gisela Dulko announces retirement from tennis

She's always been one of the most charming players on tour and will be missed.

One line from her farewell letter struck me. "Thanks to all of my fans for all their love, and thank you also those who criticized me with respect." That's a very classy thing to say.

Not many players can boast a 2-0 winning record in slams against one of the all time greats (albeit a 42 year-old all time great)

Re: Gisela Dulko announces retirement from tennis

Oh, this is sad... I really really liked Gisela, I saw her in one of my first WTA matches on TV in Zurich in 2005. I wish her all the best for her future, I hope she'll stay connected with the WTA. Maybe she can get a good position in the Latin America Swing on which the WTA seems to focus in the upcoming years.

Just read her announcement. That message to Flavia is really touching.

Re: Gisela Dulko announces retirement from tennis

I read she is retiring because she wants to focus on other things. At the age of 27? A pity, I thought she would retire because of a serious injury.

she's been playing tennis since she was a kid

due to loss of form and/or motivation, her ranking has plummeted. she'd need to battle her way through the challenger circuit to get back on the main tour - or become a doubles specialist. i don't think either appeal to her, especially given that she's recently-married and wnats to start a family.
