Munich R2: Kohlschreiber def. Gulbis 7-5 6-3
Not too bad a match from Gulbis, but he double faulted to lose his serve at the end of both sets. That highlights the lack of confidence he has. Had 40-*30 on return at 4 all in the first set and Kohli got a letcord winner, which is a shame since Gulbis was really hitting out on that point. Match could have been much different had he won that point.
Overall, Kohli was too solid and dictated most points from the baseline, served efficiently. Good match from him. Gulbis still has some game, but is clearly not the player he was when he was at his best and doing great on clay in 2010. Worse in every single department, and his shots lack the same sharpness they once had in a pretty glaring way.
