Gulbis' niche in tennis history - slam spoiler



"When I'm asked, how is it to be around Federer, and what is he really like, I always reply, "I wish people could meet him when cameras or an audience aren't around, as he is one of the nicest people I have ever met when stringing on tour. " -- drakulie

Re: USO R2 Steve Johnson beats Gulbis 6-7 7-6 6-3 6-4

So frustrating(as a fan of Gulbis and Haas). I was really hoping for a decent run for one of them. This American better back it up.

Gulbis obviously spent too much time scouting the top 50 and not the guy previously ranked around 250.
