I'd say this was a good win, but Gulbis always loses second round.

Go A-Rod! He is playing well this year!

He really is. If Nadal and Federer get exited prematurely from Wimbledon or USO, they could be his for the taking. Seems unlikely though.

You've got to admit that he tends to have a quite hard second rounds though ;)

Like Ivan Dodig? :tape: :lol:

I know what you mean though. He's lost to Roddick twice, Andreev, JMDP, Murray, Nadal, Gonzalez, and Tipsarevic all since the USO :o

Ernests is pretty unlucky. I think he would've been ranked higher now if not because of those sucky draw. lol

If he's as good as his hype he should be able to get a victory or 2 at least out of those. He's not seeded therefore does not deserve easy 2nd rounds.

I think he gets terrible draws personally. It seems since I have been following him (he first got my attention when he took a set of Rafa at wimbly) he does seem to be unlucky with his opponents. I know others will say he if he's the real deal he will beat these people but I honestly don't think Gulbis is always that confident and focused on court. He needs wins that can consolidate his confidence to gain further wins and keep getting knocked out 1st/2nd round will just not do this. He also needs to play more players whom are of a similar ranking to him imo so as to get some really close matches and to learn how to fight AND realise that he is capable of fighting out there. I just think he is the kind of player who needs to be on that learning curve on a regular basis before he will come to any kind of fruition. I really hope it happens soon because when he's on he's really exciting to watch.

This is a good win for Andy. He passed the first test. :clap2: Now comes the Hass test. :unsure:

Five Americans in the SAP QFs, good run for the US boys. :)

Andy got out-aced 3rdtime in a row :haha:
:lol: He gets out aced a lot.

Keep on winning, Andy. :drive:

Andy got out-aced 3rdtime in a row :haha:Apparently his serve hit 150mph last night, who cares if it was an ace or if the guy got the tip of his racquet on that, it's good enough :lol:

Me too when Andy faced 3 break points (0-40) on his serve in the 2nd set but he managed to get that game.
