Dulko & Pennetta first to qualify for Championships

Gisela Dulko and Flavia Pennetta have become the first doubles team to qualify for the 2010 WTA Championships. Dulko and Pennetta--who used to be partners on occasion, but who formed an ongoing partnership this season--have won five titles in 2010, and enjoyed a 17-match win streak earlier this year. Dulko also won a title this year with Elena Gallovits.

This is the first time that the team has qualified for the Championships.

Diane, didn't Pennetta qualify some years ago but opted out in favour of Fed Cup? Though I believe that might've been in singles.

I thought about it, and yes, she certainly did. I'll make a correction. Thanks, Mel!
