Re: WWW: Rome SF: Nadal vs. Gulis

IMO Gulbis should be a first player this year on clay who'll win 5 games in a set against Nadal.

Rafa 7-5 6-3.

Re: WWW: Rome SF: Nadal vs. Gulis

Gulbis can win some games with that serve of his. But does 20000 UEs per set he makes won't give him any chance against Nadal.

Re: WWW: Rome SF: Nadal vs. Gulis

Rafa 6-2 6-1, Gulbis is far too inconsistent and fatigued. Wawrinka played much better and still only won 5 games. Ernests as talented as he is, won't win more than three games.

Re: WWW: Rome SF: Nadal vs. Gulis

Being a fan of both Rafa and Ernests I have to say Rafa will take this one easily because Gulbis will make too many UEs. I'll be glad if he wins at least a couple of games in each set.

I think you don't appreciate Gulbis' physical potential which is IMO absolutely amazing.

if both players will play good - Rafa 63 63
if Rafa will play good and Gulbis as a crap - Rafa 61 61
if Gulbis will play good and Rafa as a crap - Rafa 75 63

Re: WWW: Rome SF: Nadal vs. Gulis

earnests being tired here may play a part in the match along with the fact that he'll have the chance to beat the 2 best players in the world today ( i want to vomit typing that ), i think it'll be to much mentally for him and his game will break down.

so as much ad i'd love to see ernests continue his run here i have to gor for nadal in 2, something like 6-2, 6-2
