Yes, he served for the match at 5*-4 and 6*-5....Gulbis was lucky I guess.

Yes, Clement served twice for the match and had match point at 5:4. Gulbis has been waiting long since the last win after tight match. Good for his confidence after painful defeats in the previous Masters Series tournaments. Clement has lost 10th match in career after wasting MP.

Re: Gulbis defeats Clement 6-4 3-6 7-6(5)

Match was played on the only court, which is not covered by camera, so I could only follow the livescore.

A nervy end of the match. Each player had only one break of serve up to 4:4 in the 3rd set. Then there were 4 breaks of serve in a row. Clement had a matchpoint at 5:4, but didn't take it. Gulbis won with his 2nd matchpoint.

Now vs Blake. Bring the ballbashing on, guys!

for a guy who's barely 19 gulbis had had a very high number of tight third set tie-breakers in tournaments. most times he ends up losing them, thank got this time he apparently managed to control his shots a bit better.

always good to see clement departing.

He has played some tight ones and it's all part of the learning process. He gave one away last week and he snatched one away this week. Keep it going Ernie.

Can't wait for this one. Hopefully it is as entertaining as Blake / Tursonov was in Indy a few weeks ago.

I left coz Clement already 'won' this. Shamless Clement.

Ernie *relieved*

Nalbandian/Davydenko/Berdych/Gulbis/Nadal rock, the rest is more or less sucky.
