Re: Gstaad R2: Gulbis beats Paire 5-7, 7-6(3), 6-4
These guys are very similar players, really. I like Paire, he is super talented, but he also suffers from the same mental implosions that Gulbis does. If anyone can't take advantage of Ernests's lapses in concentration, it's Benoit. As for Ernests, he really needs to work on consolidating after he breaks serve. Was down 0-40 multiple times, and the fact that he was still able to hold in those games was not a good look for Benoit.
Gulbis served pretty well, though - that was key for him.
