RG R2: Gulbis def. Blake 7-6, 3-6, 7-5, 6-3

Many winners, few UEs.

God job Gulbis.

Well done Gulbis, especially good, when behind in his service games. Blake had 0-30 or 15-40 in the fourth, but could do nothing about it.

This is the first time I saw Gulbis for more than half an hour. Really, if he hits those winners i doubt anyone can stop him. They are really blazing.

Unfortunately for him this kind of game comes and goes, so he has to work a lot on his defensive play.

Gulbis played well, no nerves serving it out.

Less ball bashing by Gulbis, good to see him get the win. Lapentti is going to upset his rhythm a lot.

Watch out Blakie, big Odesnik is looking for the DC spot in Madrid.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: RG R2: Gulbis def. Blake 7-6, 3-6, 7-5, 6-3

so many chances there James

served for the first set at 5-4
and then many games in the 4th set where he had chance to break

and that volley to give the break

Job well done


Draw is very good - even QF is possible now.

Another pathetic performance by Blake I thought he would reach quarterfinal this year because of a very beneficial draw Gulbis has very good, gentle backhand dropshot in view of his ball-bashing.
