Why Gulbis is so popular?

This guy hasn't shown anything. Only one title. He can lose to anybody. Why are you all rooting for him, what is this whole celeb status of this guy? What TF is this madness?

He is talented. But I don't respect raw talent very much. If it comes in pair with will power and mental strength, thats something I appreciate.

-most tennis players are wealthy, but not that much, and most, even if they had cushy middle class lives, were not born wealthy

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

Re: Why Gulbis is so popular?

I'm sick of hearing about Gulbis's "talent". He had one decent run in his career. He doesn't have a particulary high first serve %, his second serve is atrocious. His return of serve is shit. Sure, he can generate power and sometimes hit incredible shots, but he looks like Dustin Brown more times than naught, just spraying errors everywhere.

The guy is a joke.

Re: Why Gulbis is so popular?

Sounds charismatic, kinda Safin way, although Safin at least accomplished something in tennis before he became a fat alcoholic mofo bouncing around with dyed blonde sluts.

This is the part where I tell you how fucking lame it is to bitch about what other people care about.

Re: Why Gulbis is so popular?

haven't noticed him being too popular around here, whenever his name is brought up it's usually followed by criticism (not a hard worker, lazy, unmotivated, overrated, mug, etc)
I enjoyed his run in Rome last year, but he's way too inconsistent. Still young enough to turn things around if he wants to, though

Re: Why Gulbis is so popular?

he doesn't seem to have any male fans, so looks have obviously got a lot to do with it.
