Gulbis lost that match, he had it in his back pocket. Still trying to figure out how Andreev won that match. His game is soooo ugly at times, like just soooo damn ugly.

It looked like Gulbis didn't even care he lost, strange fellow he is.

Poor Gulbis with his neverending story of close defeats Andreev's involving in tight matches is amazing considering his style of play. Anyway Igor is a better match up for Blake than Gulbis

I enjoyed this match watched most of it. What a passing shot in the game where Andreev broke back in the 5th. First two sets Gulbis was 0/0 on Break point opportunities and Andreev was 2/8. Then Andreev's game plan stopped working and Gulbis found consistency. Final set was great, some nice hitting Gulbis was up 40-0 *4-5 in the fifth then Andreev won 5 straight points on the Gulbis serve to take it out!!! Wooo this has made my day

Andreev two 5 setters and didn't look to tired in the 5th whereas Gulbis was cramping up.

Good luck against Blake!!!

Gulbis will be remembered as the biggest talent that didn't make it to top 10...

Gulbis chokes too often, I can't see him as top 10 player.

Does anyone know how many 1st serves Gulbis got in his last two service games? Seriously I don't remember one! Sometimes I really don't think the kid is thinking about what he is doing out there.

I don't know what to say, such a shame that he somehow managed to blew this after such a comeback and being a break up. He looked like he ran out of motivation after he got that break in the fifth. Even after being re-broken he had 40:0 lead on his serve for a 5-5. Unlike him Andreev in the fifth set looked like he want this win badly and he got it.

2 consecutive 5 set matches for Andreev and he looked like he could still go on for another couple of hours.
