Re: Rotterdam R2 WWW: Ernest Gulbis vs Juan Martin del Potro

Del Potro in two tight sets. Even if Gulbis will be break up he will somehow choke and lose.

Re: Rotterdam R2 WWW: Ernest Gulbis vs Juan Martin del Potro

At least after the first round he has a big name opponent which suggests he may have a shot. His best game can win though.

Re: Rotterdam R2 WWW: Ernest Gulbis vs Juan Martin del Potro

It depends on Gulbis only. He is much better than Del Potro

Re: Rotterdam R2 WWW: Ernest Gulbis vs Juan Martin del Potro

6-3 6-4 Del Potro. Heavy Forehand will have Gublis scrambling.

I don't know why anyone thinks Gublis will win....this is Del Potro, not some no name :/

If you have an issue with a report/infraction, a user, a moderator or just want to talk, PM me.

I support Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, David Ferrer, Del Potro.

Why? Because I love tennis plain and simple

Er because Gulbis is more likely to actually beat Del Potro than he is to beat some no name?

Re: Rotterdam R2 WWW: Ernest Gulbis vs Juan Martin del Potro

Godbis has already shown up in the last 6 months so I'll go with DP 6-3 6-3

July 2012 - Godbis vs Berdick
February 2013 - Godbis vs Haase

Some people mistake the Distant Sun for an eternally raging fireball calling for your demise. Just like aliens from outer space. Aliens from other planets. Aliens in galaxies too far away from your own comprehension. Your demise is ultimately irrelevant and meaningless.

Do not question our motives, our objectives, or our qualities. Question your own place in the universe.

Re: Rotterdam R2 WWW: Ernest Gulbis vs Juan Martin del Potro

I'll root for Gulbis here because it would be good for tennis if this guy finally woke up, but he's not beating Del potro. Beating Haase at a 500 is probably all his Pop's was looking for right now, and believe it, Gulbis is only in it for the dad.

Besides, he did only beat Haase. Haase has never won an ATP match. I've heard stories about how "Haase won a match" and such and such, and I'm sure ATP records could be dug up on said wins, but it's a bunch of blsh!t. I've never seen it happen, nope.

Gulbis is actually the more talented of the two and it's not close imo. This is not even an attack on Delpo, Gulbis is ridiculosuly talented. The difference is Del Potro worked very hard to maximize his strengths and become an elite player, Gulbis most definitely hasn't. JMDP is miles ahead of Gulbis as a competitor and a tennis pro, but Gulbis is a great talent, he most definitely can beat JMDP or any other top player.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

Kind of. That definitely helped, but not exactly.
I mean, I have my personal issues with Delpo since 2010, still, I don't like his desition of not playing DC, I will be totally against that, I don't care if he prefers his ranking over DC.
But if you see my older posts, I never showed some fan-attitude with Delpo, never. I like his tennis and I respect him a lot, but I have my personal things with him.

Still... I don't dislike him and I cheer for him so many times in so many matches.
I like "Good-Gulbis", but I think we didn't see him since... I don't know, 2010?

And I think I didn't say anything agressive about him?

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.
