Re: IW Nadal def Mayer via walkover.

Great. Every minute less on hardcourts is a good thing. Potential match versus Gulbis is just

No trolling involved. Did you watch Gulbis play recently? He's on. Once Ernests is on he can beat anyone on the ATP world tour. You might be surprised then...

Partially agreed, it's just Gulbis carries too much self-implosion potential to threaten a player like Nadull. He's simply not consistent enough to ball-bash him for an hour and a half.

He'd have wanted a match but it's not the end of the world for him. Not like he needs to reach his best HC form this week - just needs to get through it and then move onto clay.

Re: IW Nadal def Mayer via walkover.

Somehow I fear of a possible Fognini effect.
No W/O is good for a tennis player IMO.

Re: IW Nadal def Mayer via walkover.

Love the fact that Gulbish has beaten a bunch of fairly average players and now becomes the favourite in some people's eyes. Bizarre.

Re: IW Nadal def Mayer via walkover.

not sure if this is a good thing for Nadal. He might be rusty against, I assume, Gulbis who's been playing well lately.
