Well done Ernests! A bit sloppy with the UF's in the first, but great effort in the second!

He will meet the winner of Roddick and Santoro.

Roger Federer. Legend.

Re: US Open 08 R1: E. Gulbis def. T. Johansson 7-5 6-1 7-6 (3)

As much as I saw on Eurosport, it seemed pretty sloppy by both.

Gulbis needs to improve his vollies and slice. Shot selection is sometimes a bit weird as well. Well, at least he wasn't bashing the ball so much today.

Btw, I hadn't spotted the fact which was mentioned by Eurosport commentators. If Roddick wins Santoro, then he will play Gulbis on August 30. But August 30 is birthday for both Roddick and Gulbis. A pretty interesting coincidence

Gulbis Didn't some one post a thread saying Johannson would take out Gulbis

aarrrrrgggghhhhhh, fiiiiiinally I've watched some tennis. Gulbis is gonna be awesome in next couple of years, once he matures. There was no way pa Johannson would've taken him out today. Match was not so good as I've enjoyed watching Ernests play. A true ball torturer. Lets hope he won't go down the 'headcase' lane...

reliability...

Well that is some coincidence
Since Roddick has already experienced how it feels to be humiliated at the USO on his birthday (if I'm not mistaken his first round loss against Gilles Muller was on his birthday) it won't be a new experience for him.

¡Vamos Rafa!

TJ.

Ernests!!

Also, that Andy and Ernests have the same birthday. They can bring out cake for both before the match. Each can wish for the win as they blow out the candles.

But --- Now I feel as if I've made a jinxing post and Andy will lose to Santoro.

That match will be played Friday August 29th. Saturday is only for third round matches in the upper part of the draw.

Isn't Roddick's birthday is Aug 29? At least, according to this forum.

Edit: And this forum is wrong.
