Some clutch play from Gulbis, saving those BPs. Also served very well

Thank you Paire for taking out Tomug in the last round.

Game over. Forever.

Paire was the best player for the whole match, but the break point conversion was atrociuos. 2/3 for Gulbis, 2/17 for Benoit.
Really lucky Gulbis with netcords and half-lines though.

A disaster from Paire though.

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.

good win for Ernests. I'm having a hard time believing he served well though, with 17 BP's against.

He's stated in several interviews that he will never go back to Sweden after how he was treated there.
