Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

First set 6-1 what a great start

Ernests Gulbis - very emotional tennis player with a big potential and ambitions and best smile on ATP tour.

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

He plays the fourth match tomorrow against Mathieu. It will certainly be more difficult than today. Good luck to Ernie

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

Saw half of 2nd set. He had trouble closing the match. I whish he could move better during exchanges; seems like he waits still while the ball is coming...
Wonder if he had some coaching during his 2 months. Someone knows?

Anyway, I will look at his entire match tomorrow, hoping it won't be his last for a while.

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

Here's the match report

Quote:
Ernests Gulbis (photo) started his season from a convincing 6-1 6-2 win over Matthias Bachinger from Germany. In the second round he can play against the top seed Paul Henri Mathieu (still to fight against Dusan Lajovic). This surely would be a match worth going to Heilbronn.

Today the Latvian was really good, although it wasn't the level that would carry him anywhere far at the Australian Open. He surely was motivated - even when Bachinger had many breakpoints, Gulbis focused and served aces or other difficult serves. He also annoyed his opponent with a repetitve angled forehand on the line played from the middle of the court. As for the less flattering things, it's hard to predict how Gulbis would fare in few shot longer rallies, because he didn't seem blistering quick, and also Bachinger wasn't the one to outpower the Latvian.

He won more points overall but lost in the 3rd set tiebreak and he smashed his racket at the end.
