Gisela Dulko Retires From Tennis
by Tom Gainey | November 18th, 2012

Argentine Gisela Dulko announced her retirement from WTA tennis earlier today.

“This was not an easy decision, despite the fact that it has been on my mind for quite some time,” she said in a statement. “Tennis has been my life for the past 20 years.

“The reason why I have decided to retire from tennis is because I now have other priorities on which I want to focus. As a result, I don’t have the same desire or ability to make the sacrifices which are necessary to live the life of a tennis professional.

“This is my way of saying goodbye to tennis, a sport with which I fell in love as a very young girl and will continue to love my whole life.”

The 27-year-old South American beauty finished her career with four singles titles, 17 doubles and with just over $4.2 million in prize money.

Dulko finished No. 1 in doubles just two years ago. Her highest singles ranking was No. 26 in 2005. She reached three fourth rounds in Grand Slam singles play and in doubles she won the 2011 Australian Open with Flavia Pennetta.

Dulko’s singles ranking had dropped to No. 306 this year and her doubles slid to No. 46.
