Barcelona R1: Tomic def. Gulbis 6-3 6-4

Scoreline is pretty decent for Gulbis. He didn't do a lot on return, especially in the second set. Had 15-30 second serve on return in the final game and did not break. His serve numbers look a lot better the second set than the first. So at least some improvements seem to have been made.

Good win for Bernard.

Barcelona R1: Tomic d. Gulbis 6-3 6-4

In the last two weeks Tomic has finally started:
  1. Getting ATP wins on clay and
  2. having straightforward wins against top 100 opponents.

Well it's gun to see Tomic get some degree on form. Hopefully on courts that suit him he can win titles.

Gulbis on the other hand.....it's time to ditch strippers and start thinking about the game.

Good win for Tomic. Let's hope Stosur can beat Peng now, to make it an even better day for the Aussies.

Not sure Gulbis deserves top 100 moniker after his recent performance, didn't watch the match tough, it seems he wasn't too bad?

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Based on what I just read about the match, it was described as being "easy" for Tomic. That means Gulbis probably sucked again, although the scoreline may look OK. Too bad. He's really overranked right now.

losing 7 gms against Gulbis isn't a promising sign for B-Nard...
