After that blip in the first set, it is nice to see Delpo storming back!

I can't stand Gulbis' lack of concentration. He lost 6 service games and on each break point he played like an amateur Gulbis is such a waste. It's not only a matter of his technical skills, he's got also amazing potential in respiration what's very helpful in Australia.

Hard match for Gulbis today, sounds like his mental strength cost him dearly today though, is he motivated enough?

Well done to JMDP, feel he is a darkhorse for the AO.

I guess it's too early to tell with just one match under his belt. Let's see how the week develops for him.
