AO 1R; Ben.Becker d. Gulbis 7-6(5) 6-2 6-4

Laughable outcome

I didn't think Gulbis is so stupid, tanking the 2nd set against Simon in Sydney only to get this in Melbourne

Untelevised so who the hell knows what happened here.

Becker on his day can be a handful but this is still a really bad result for Gulbis.

Unexpected but at the same time very predictable

Another non-shocker.

Yes, Gulbis IS this unpredictable.

Gulbis had Becker at 0-40 on Becker's second-to-last service game.

I know the bagel against Simon set a high standard, but Gulbis may not yet have peaked in terms of muggery. We're still only a few weeks into the year.

Just quit Gulbis. Hasn't gone past the first round of a slam since Wimbledon '09

Gulbis is the leading man in my no-bet list, you just never know with him

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Can't get any better than this. Dedicated to all the mugs who were seriously think he is a contender for the grand slam title

The BIGGEST (borderline delusional) fan of players on General Message Board according to Forehander:
Grigor Dimitrov: FedererBulgaria
Borna Coric: Crowdmaker
Nick Krygios: Dan.
Tommy Haas: Leng Jai
Sebastien Grosjean: Myself
Novak Djokovic: Chiico (Leader of the No1e Cult)

Typical Gulbis on a sidecourt against a player he should beat. When he's not on the big stage he crumbles. Pathetic scoreline.
