Dulko Feels Pretty Afrer Upsetting Sharapova

Gisela Dulko had always been regarded as a second-tier player on the WTA Tour. Maybe that will change now that she is in the third round at Wimbledon. Then again, maybe it won't.
Dulko picked up arguably one of the biggest wins of her career thus far this morning, defeating 24th seed Maria Sharapova 6-2, 3-6, 6-4 in their second round match at the All-England Club, where Sharapova won as a 17-year-old in 2004. Dulko will face another Russian, Nadia Petrova, in the third round.
