This thread should be for the whole US Open Series. Instead of opening a new one for each tournament that JC will play in US.
I'll edit the top post then.
Btw, I saw the Gulbis match online though didn't have time to post till now.
First of all, tt wasn't a bad match considering it was JC's first match on hard court since USO last year.
JC was the better player in the third set until 5-5; he was holding more comfortably and had multiple break chances on Gulbis' serve---but he couldn't force his game on BPs and that was it. Ernie managed to raise up his game in the last two games while JC tightened.
JC usually does better in Cincy so let's keep fingers crossed!
