2008 Tournament Thread - Time for the Australian Open!!

I know there is a Hopman Cup thread started already but it isn't an actual tournament.

Anyway, last year I just thought there were too many threads with like 10 to 20 posts in them (Let's blame Gise for losing early ) and it kind of clogged the foum up a bit.

I still think threads like the pics threads, the articles thread, the Off-Topic thread, etc. are important.

I am not a mod so if this seems like a bad idea then we can also go back to starting a seperate thread for each tournament. It is just a suggestion.

I can always update this first post with each tournament and what post number it starts on and things like that. And if Gise starts to do amazing then we can always go back to starting a seperate thread.


I still don't know what tournament Gise will be starting the Season with (besides Hopman Cup).



Gisela Dulko. Forever.


Also I like Rena.

Re: 2008 Tournament Thread - First Tournament ?

All what I know is that Hopman Cup is being played at the same time than Auckland is so probably she will be back in Hobart.

Re: 2008 Tournament Thread - First Tournament ?

Yes... Maybe not creating one thread per tournament...But devide the season (e.g. : one for the clay season, one for the grass, one for the hard court season,...)would be good.

The Official Viola's Player in Kirilenko's Orchestra

Good luck to : Daniela Hantuchova - Gisela Dulko - Maria Kirilenko - Nicole Vaidisova - Jarmila Gajdosova - Iona Raluca Olaru - Edina Gallovits - Sorana Cristea - Dominika Cibulkova - Stéphanie Dubois - Marie-Eve Pelletier - Valerie Tetreault - Jillian O'Neill -Mandy Minella - Dinara Safina - Karolina Sprem - Alicia Molik - Ana Ivanovic - Martina Hingis

Actually, she is not in the Auckland's entry list. Her WTA first tournament of the year is Hobart (priority 2).
Josh, you can change the thread's title now.

Gisela Dulko
¤WTA #1 Doubles Player / 2011 AO Doubles Champion¤

Paola Suárez ♥ María Emilia Salerni ♥ Clarisa Fernandez ♥ Paula Ormaechea ♥ Betina Jozami

Priority 2? So what is Gisela's first priority?

Also the list in the Auckland forum about entry list is the 2007 list it was there for discussion until some names were announced which they now have been.

Anna Meares & Nathan Outteridge

Re: 2008 Tournament Thread - First Tournament ?

I was searching about Gisela's schedule and I found that she will play Hopman Cup, then she has Sydney as her first priority (she's 2nd seed in Qualy which means 2 spots out of MD) and Hobart as 2nd choice.

I believe that she'll wait until Sydney's Qualy draw is coming out. If she couldn't make Sydney's MD she'll play in Hobart. BTW it's a wisely decision.

(5) Victoria Azarenka (BLR) vs Olga Govortsova (BLR)
Gisela Dulko (ARG) vs Alberta Brianti (ITA)
Meilen Tu (USA) vs Emilie Loit (FRA)
Qualifier vs (3) Maria Kirilenko (RUS)

Not the best draw for Gisela. Although she has an easy first round, in second round she could face this week's Gold Coast finalist and if she wins she can play Kirilenko who is playing a great tennis.

She isn't playing doubles this week. This is wierd because most of her former partners are playing here such as Makiri, Tu or Flavia.
