Re: Gulbis - Del Potro - Cilic

Gulbis has powerful 1st serve and makes astonishingly few double faults despite fast 2nd serve but should still work a lot on both serves. His first serve reminds me a little bit Roddick's serve in the middle 00's, especially on "deuce court", sometimes it's 220 km/h but easy to receive with backhand slice (for a right handed opponent). Gulbis should try to hit 1st serve with bigger variety and improve kick-serve on 2nd serve, when he'll begin to serve aces with 170-180 km/h, his serve will be amazingly effective on faster surfaces than clay.

Re: Gulbis - Del Potro - Cilic

The three of them are rather dull, DPot especially. BANG hard to the right, BANG hard to the left, BANG hard to the right...

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: Gulbis - Del Potro - Cilic

Del Potro is mentally stronger and this has and will show in his results if not injured.

Yeah. Of course it's a lot nicer to watch BANG moonball to the right, BANG moonball to the left, BANG moonball to the right...

Sorry, couldn't resist.

I guess it depends how you define risk. For him, that net clearance really isn't much of a gamble - his error rate is extraordinary given how hard and flat he hits it.

Re: Gulbis - Del Potro - Cilic

These three all (I hope) have their best moments ahead. Along with Nadal and absent Simon, they're my favorite players on tour.

It's great to see Ernests play smart, inspired tennis. His success on clay involves more than just wacking the ball left and right. Novak could learn from his well-timed use of the drop shot.

Re: Gulbis - Del Potro - Cilic

Um, let's not get carried away with throwing Gulbis in with Cilic and Del Potro. He had one good tournament, but how quickly we forget how unbelievably bad he was for the last few months...

But I suppose to weigh in on the topic, Del Potro is an incredibly consistent heavy-hitter, Marin less so, and Gulbis even less so.

I love tennis because of...

Andre Agassi (always #1)---Novak Djokovic ---Rafa Nadal---
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga---Gilles Simon---Tomas Berdych---David Nalbandian---Nico Almagro
