Tursunov is in the Final in s-Hertogenbosch and Gulbis needs some wins, he has been in bad form.

Who takes this?

Would have said this would be the muggiest match ever to be played at Wimbledon but since Tursunov has just made the final of s-Hertogenbosch I'll go with him in 4.

I hope Gulbis finds some form and wins this match but Tursunov will have the confidence on having a good week in Holland.

Gulbis should just retire from the sport already. He isn't doing anything and never will. Bye bye Gulbis! Tursunov is going to destroy you :bigwave:

Since a bunch of excellent tennis analysts think Gulbis is doomed, the safe bet is Gulbis in 3.

Depends on how fit Dima is heading into Wimbledon. If he's feeling great, he'll win and win comfortably. Dima hits the ball bigger than Gulbis and his game suits grass more, plus he'll be more confident.

Its a grand slam... Gulbis hardly ever wins a match. Tursunov easily

Dima has lost 9 consecutive 1st Round Match of GS, I believe he could pass Gulbis this time!

That's what happens when you turn up at slams only for $$$ despite being injured. In his first 20 slam appearances Mitya lost in the opening round only thrice (and only once between 2004 Wimbledon and 2008 US Open).

Gulbis has a horrible GS record of late also. And a horrible record in big tournaments in general. So that factor is basically non-existent here.

hard to see Dima losing this match on his favourite surface
