He underachieved because of choking and injuries but given the injuries he's had his overall tennis resume is pretty good.

Tommy didn't choke, he was simply unlucky. Shit happens.

I read that some people found Gulbis' post-match interview "rude". What did he say?

After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

He absolutely choked. Hitting an overhead into the net isn't bad luck and that's not even taking into account the atrocious forehand sitter that preceded it.

Looks like Gulbis is really back on track.

Really impressed by his fighting spirit lately. That's more like it, Ernie.

Given all the misfortune he had in that department, I'd say Haas has done pretty well overall.
Haas has definitely underachieved, due to injuries.
