E-Gul vs Blake

Gulbis takes on Blake tomorrow. Does E-Gul have the upper hand in this match? Its going to be serious slug fest as both like to knock the cover off the ball.

E-Gul has a full arsenal of weaponery for the fast hard courts while Blake has his "see ball, close eyes, and blast the damn ball" approach. I think E-Gul can take this one but he has to serve big and not choke like he did in Toronto.

Who wins this one and why? Thoughts? Smart remarks? Insults?

You don't need to explain why, because the answers are predictable and limited to stuff such as "because have better backhand blah blah crap" then it revolves into a typical MTF post. So for example if you choose Ernest Gulbis, just say "Gulbis". If you choose blake on the other hand, say "Blake". Done

Re: E-Gul vs Blake

Blake is not in his best form, but the Cinci playing surface is ideally suited to his game. Gulbis has loads of talent, but he really doesn't have very good results on hard courts to date. What's his best win on hard courts to this point? Robredo at the U.S. Open last year? And what's his second best win on the surface? I'll pick Blake in 3 close sets, but I could easily see Gulbis winning.

This is the best answer in fact as an alternative to just saying the surname of a player. Because this leaves you dangling in mid-air. People would usually ask "why do you think that?". But who really cares? It's just my opinion right? Whatever I say back you're going to counter? So I might as well just stick to this answer and never post again on this thread. Glenn you're the best.

E-Gul, as you know, had a great tournament at Roland Garros. i am still waiting for him to fully announce his arrival on the big stage at the masters events. he has to start making the quarters and semis on consistent basis now. the potential is there.
