Latvian qualifier Ernests Gulbis lost just 10 points on serve as he dismissed Robin Haase of The Netherlands 6-2, 6-1 in the first round of the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament on Tuesday in Rotterdam. The 24-year-old Gulbis, who has fallen to No. 132 in the Emirates ATP Rankings from a career-high No. 21, claimed his second tour-level win of the season.
Gulbis goes onto face the winner of a blockbuster first-round clash between second seed Juan Martin del Potro and French wild card Gael Monfils.
