29-year-old Gisela Dulko is the lovely wife of Argentine footballer, Fernando Gago. Her hubby of three-years currently plays as a defensive midfielder for Boca Juniors and the Argentine national team. Dulko and her fellow Argentine man make one special duo. They both are successful athletes, if you are a tennis enthusiast then you’ve heard her name before.
Dulko –a professional tennis player –retired two-years ago. Born in January 30th, 1985 in Tigre, Buenos Aires, Argentina; Gisela enjoyed modest success in singles but her true passion has been doubles. The former world no. 1 player partnered with Flavia Pennetta.
The daughter of Ana and Estanislao (deceased) was coached by brother Alejandro; started playing tennis at age 7 after watching him play. Her most admired tennis players are Pete Sampras and Marat Safin.
But she became quite the player winning the 2010 WTA Tour Championships and the 2011 Australian Open in doubles.
She achieved 4 singles titles and 17 doubles titles (including a Master Series and Australia Open).
Like many players, Gisela also did some modeling –most player have a great physique –by posing in lingerie and bikinis.
She wedded Fernando Gago at a ceremony in Buenos Aires in July 2011 and last year she gave birth to the couple’s only child. Dulko and Gago became parents to an adorable baby boy named Mateo on 9 June 2013. The excited mother to be, at the time, posted a picture of her belly announcing the imminent arrival of her baby.
At age 27 in 2012, she made the decision to retire, Dulko’s statement read in part:
“Dear friends: I would like to share with you that I have come to an important life-decision. I am retiring from professional tennis. This was not an easy decision, despite the fact that it has been on my mind for quite some time.
“Tennis has been my life for the past 20 years.
Today I am proud to say that I enjoyed my career so very much. All of my titles in singles and doubles will forever hold a very special place in my heart.
“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.”
Following her retirement she has been able to dedicate more time to her family and now a days the hot WAG enjoys shopping (especially clothes by Armani), relaxes by going to the beach and runs the Dulko Tennis Academy with her brother.
Dulko –who is a year older then her hubby –seems to be enjoying this new chapter in her life. She understands how much sacrifice and dedication the sport needs and she is very supportive of her husband.
