Good info for him - his poor form started last year at the Roland Garros, so he hasn't too many points to defend since now. He won't be in the Top 90 anymore this season :lol:

almost blew it but some good stuff from Gulbis, he wanted that win

Great result! He has all the possibilities to destroy Istomin in R2 (or at least I hope he will), but what's more important is that Fognini's out in R1! ;)

Well, not a surprise. Neither player are in good form whatsoever but Gulbis has the power to be able to bully Fabio if he sets his mind to executing the gameplan. Maybe this will spark a resurgence. As for Fabio, he needs to start winning some matches.

Good, Fognini can GTFO.

Watched this whole match, had a large wager on Gulbis. Gulbis seemed very motivated from the get-go, haven't seen him that into it in awhile.

He did benefit from a little luck, as Fognini played extremely poor on the BP oppurtunies he had in the final two sets, for the most part. He had seven overall and couldn't take one.

Interview after the match:

French lady(in English): Erneststo, good win for you, but after that first set you had such a sad face?

Gulbis: *surprised look* sad face?...*smirk*

French lady: Well you know with not winning a match in so seemed so desole

Gulbis: ok.

Gulbis can always be counted to win a f*****g match.

Gulbis has had some Cahill time, maybe he got slapped about a bit. Not surprised Gumy told him to f off.

Or maybe Gil made him run up a hill.

Maybe someone told him the match was all about fucking indeed.

Anyway Fognini isn't winning that much in the last few weeks either. Probably a match of a one-legged vs. one-handed.
