Gulbis thanks to Gumy hasn't been a mental midget like used to be before they began to work together Love an ace at setpoint down

Lopez should be glad to have had that free time from the last retirement; he had time to do some sightseeing before he got his butt handed to him by Ernie.

I like Nadal, but I'm hoping Gulbis will give him a run for his money.

It's always good to see a player who managed to beat one of my favs make it far into a tournament. Good for tennis, too. Congrats, Gulbis, some very nice tennis there.

Feli.

Well done Gulbis. Glad to see a Fed-beater actually capitalize on their victory *ahem Julien Benneteau*.

Re: Rome QF: Gulbis def. Lopez 7-6 (6) 6-1

Great job by Gulbis, feel bad for Lopez but this is clay and he got outplayed, he had his chances in the first set but choked. Anyways I do not see Gulbis giving Nadal too much trouble, Wawrinka was at least five times better. Gulbis will win three games max.

Anyways Gulbis has a really bright future.

Feli! Good run tough with all the dram on his personal life!
Gulbis! Glad that he made SF after taking Federer out. He reminds so much Marat, like a younger version. The way he plays, hitting hard in the ball, no thinking to much in sending the balls way over the line, Powerful service, and the hairrrrr... Totally Marat style!
Let's see tomorrow how he does, Rafa will have some trouble if Gulbis keep his service on 80% at least.
Looking forward for tomorrow, great matches to come!

Supporting FERNANDO VERDASCO, whatever it takes. Haters

MOYA!
Спасибо SAFIN!

GUGA, OBRIGADA!

nice to see Ernests keep up his good form since winning Del Ray Beach earlier this year sometimes all a player needs is that 1st title and then the train gets going

When he's on his game, Gulbis is top player material
