It's full time. Vajda is still in a role of "main" coach but Martin is there to stay.

From one clown to another: with Safin gone, Gumy to coach Gulbis

Gulbis isn't a clown- he has a lot of talent that just needs to be reigned in.

I don't find Gumy as a good coach, but Gulbis is very talented.

Except unlike Safin, Gulbis will probably never win a slam.. Much less 2 like Safin, much less against two of the greatest players to ever step foot on a tennis court like Pete and Roger.

Safin had the potential to be one of the best of all time, at the very least the best hardcourt player of all time.. Gulbis doesnt have the potential to do this

You talk as if he's coaching Robredo. Believe it or not, some people appreciate the challenge of bringing talent to fruition.

It probably shouldn't be too hard to achieve some quick success the way Gulbis is going now.

Ernest Gulbis has a better future in hollywood than on a tennis court. He can play the rule of a latvian resistance leader in Valkerie 2 with Tom cruise.

I wonder if you even watch tennis.


To think Gulbis has as much prospect as a young Safin did needs to do their homework

If you have then u would know, very few players have came down the pike in recent year that had the ability and more "upside" than Safin had. He came bursting on the scene at 19-20 years old and not only beat but DISSECTED a GOAT candidate and 29 year old Sampras in the finals of the USO. Then 5 years later took everything a peak Federer had to offer at the AO and still came out win the win.


Whats Gulbis ever done on this level?

5 years is a lifetime. It was pretty obvious by that point that Safin was never going to live up to his potential.

he's done nothing. Zero. He stinks. I dislike Gulbis just as much as everyone else on this forum. But I thought we were talking about POTENTIAL, not PAST RESULTS.

A hippopotamus is smart enough to figure out that Gulbis has just about as much potential as anyone else in the game right now.

Will he ever put it together? I certainly doubt it. But whether or not he does is irrelevant to this discussion.

If you can be bothered to abandon the superior, know-it-all attitude for a moment, may I ask again why are you surprised that someone would take up the task of coaching someone who you admit has great potential?
