Gulbis losing a few ranking points here.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

This is R2, did someone expect different winner?

Nice to see Almagro get a few wins under his belt because lets face it he has all the tools to really do damage, looking forward to his clash with Verdasdco, if vintage Almagro turns up it could be a shot making clinic from both, i expect verdasco to prevail however, gulbis still fails to get past a 2nd round and it as good as june which is shocking, tough draw though hopefully he can make some noise on the grass which i fully expect given how it should suit his big shots.

Well done Nico.

The slump continues for Gulbis. I doubt Nico's playing well enough at the moment to stop on-fire Nando though.

Two ball-bashers with very short tempers... hmm....no wonder the points were ended so quickly.

Re: RG R2: Almagro def. Gulbis 6-7 7-6 6-3 6-2

Do you guys reckon last year was a fluke for Gulbis or has he just had a very bad season so far?

I'm hoping it's the latter.

Hopefully, Pilic puts him fully in shape for Wimbledon. He looked very impressive in the first round in all respects.

Almugro is one of the worst players in the top 500. Should have never won this.

Big Head wins 2 matches in a row for the first time since Acapulco I think.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Won also 2 in Barcelona, actually 1.5 because Hanescu retired at 1 set a piece

Expected Gulbis to pull through for some reason but I clearly should have known better.

Vamos Rafa
