RG QF WWW: Djokovic vs. Gulbis

Niki Pilic academy buddies who have had "crazy experiences" together off the court meet in an official match for the first time. Who will win? I say Djokovic but I hope Gulbis will be able to take at least a set from him.

Gulbis might get a set if he's lucky, but Djokovic's experience, mentality and solid game should get him through.

Evita, make a poll for this one

Answering question: Djokovic in 3. He will be too solid from baseline for Gulbis.

Re: RG QF WWW: Djokovic vs. Gulbis

If Gulbis leaves his head in the locker room (not unheard of before), he'll be an easy meal for Nole. However, I don't expect that to happen, so I go with a tighter match, but eventually in Nole's favor.

Crazy experiences?
Should be Nole in 3, maybe Nole in 4 if his head isn't in the match at first.

Re: RG QF WWW: Djokovic vs. Gulbis

I voted Gulbis.

For me, a Djokovic win is a surprising disappointment each time. I've been quite surprised and disappointed for the good part of a year now.

It happens when footballer dares to play tennis. Always a surprise.

Re: RG QF WWW: Djokovic vs. Gulbis

too much experience on Nole side. Really cant see him losing to Gulbis. Maybe the latvian will be a hard nut to crack but in the end Nole should be the winner without a doubt.
