Gulbis downs Stepanek, 6-4 6-4

Gulbis was quite scary this match....serve was on fire and there's really nothing the Sexmaster could do.

Radek was cheated at 6-4 5-4, 30-30 when he hit a sweet lob that was called out....it was clearly in. Probably would've lost anyway though.

Re: Gulbis downs Stepanek, 6-4 6-4

Great display from Ernests. No real mental lapses, and he kept Stepanek back on the baseline. Stepanek was not at his best, though. Maybe some after effects from DC.

Good luck in the next round Gulbis.

If at first you don't succeed, lower your standards.

Re: Gulbis downs Stepanek, 6-4 6-4

I agree Steps was robbed on that lob to give Gulbis match point. Guess there's no Hawkeye. Too bad, but Gulbis was better on the day anyway. Who does he play next? Any chance Gulbis can break the 2nd round jinx?

Re: Gulbis downs Stepanek, 6-4 6-4

The big question now is can Gulbis break that R2 curse and beat Monaco/GGL?

Re: Gulbis downs Stepanek, 6-4 6-4

I thought for sure Ernie was gonna choke it away serving for it at 5-4, with the FH UE's and the DF to 30-40. But I was pleasantly surprised as he held his nerve/serve to close it out. Second round loss here we come!

Oh my gosh! Am I going to have to change my mind about Gulbis?
