2012 Age-group Tournaments

2012 was Gaby’s first time to compete full time although she missed some tournaments in the last quarter of the year. She started it by joining Andrada Cup in January and entered her last tournament in October by joining the Dunlop Age-group in Cavite.  It was the year of many first time, It was her first time to compete in 6 consecutive tournaments during the summer season.  She  also experienced to play in different weather conditions like coming from a hot manila weather  in Cainta and going to Baguio the following week and going back again to scorching hot weather in Angeles, Pampanga. It took a toll on her,  she retired from her semifinals match in Milo Clark due to heat exhaustion.
