Argentina (4E Sports) – Argentina’s Gisela Dulko, 27, is retiring from professional tennis.
She announced on her website that she has other priorities to focus on.
“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,” Dulko shared.
Dulko won four singles titles and 17 doubles titles in her career, reaching a high of No. 26 in singles and No. 1 in doubles.
Teaming with Flavia Pennetta, they won the 2011 Australian Open title. That came off her best year in
doubles, 2010, when she and Pennetta teamed to win eight titles, including the season-ending WTA Championships.
Observers speculate that she might prioritize modeling. Her Twitter images show her posing in lingerie and bikinis.
