Ernests played pretty well and Djokovic played horribly.

Re: Brisbane R1: Ernests Gulbis defeats Novak Djokovic 6-4, 6-4

wave goodbye to the no.2 spot for a long, long time, nole. you'll never be this close again, i guess.

ernie looked pretty sharp today, one of those days where his game just worked. could be the complete opposite in the next round though, as usual.

Good for Gulbis but Novak was AWFUL. His 1st serve percentage was in the 40s.

Re: Brisbane R1: Ernests the Swan def. Djokovic 6/4 6/4

Gulbis played quite well! Besides a couple shaky games on serve early in the 2nd set, that is. Ernests actually could have much more easily, like 6-4, 6-1 or 6-4, 6-0. Novak was pretty terrible today.

Anyone else notice that Nole is in desperate need of a haircut? My god.

Terrible match from Djokovic.

Gulbis played quite well apart from an early second set blip.

Re: Brisbane R1: Ernests Gulbis defeats Novak Djokovic 6-4, 6-4

Nole was nowhere near his best.

That aside, I am ecstatic, of course

Congratulations to Ernests and his fans. He played well. Nole was poor and didn't deserve the victory today Good luck to Ernests for the rest of the tournament.
