Mackenzie Dern Makes History By Defeating Gabi Garcia
Mackenzie Dern makes history by defeating Gabi Garcia in the females absolute semi finals. Dern now faces GF Team’s Vanessa Oliveira in the female’s absolute finals of the Abu Dhabi World Professional cup 2015.

I’m just so happy the strategy was good.” – Mackenzie Dern
