Very good, and very important victory for Simone. Awesome service numbers and did well to save BP in the final game of the first set and close things out in the last game where it went to 40-30 from 40-0. Hopefully he takes out Simon now, and I don't see why not.

When is this jester retiring? By the end of the year?

Dropped just 10 points on his serve(2 of those were double faults). Simone has a great draw to go deep here.With wimbledon coming up he could use all the points he can get

I'm not a tennis expert, but I don't think Bolelli on grass is the most difficult challenge ever.

well he did make the 3rd round of wimbledon last year, when the grass is still fast. Strangely enough i think the fast courts are where he benefits the most now so wimbledon early and the fall summer hardcourts could see him do well

Grass is the surface where he plays his best for sure. :rolleyes:

Yeah, I remember that. He beat Wawrinka beeing a LL in straight sets.
But still, I consider that one of a million miracles.

Whatever, Gulbis losing is always bittersweet... I used to like PeakUlbis, but that strange person never shows up. It's like the Slenderman

Remember when people thought Gulbis would challenge Federer and Nadal? Good times.

Gulbis loses to this clay clown on grass, more mugginess from him.

I noticed this the last time I saw Gulbis in a televised match (against Kohlschreiber) - Gulbis' returning is atrocious. He's making ordinary servers look amazing. He's going to get owned in any grass match he plays so he should just go right to the clay challenger events and lose there.

Always nice when Simone wins a main draw match.

Think Gulbis might retire soon. Not as if he needs the money and his form has been atrocious. Clearly has no desire to turn things around.

Bolelli has had his best overall results on grass, so anyone calling him a "clay clown" in relation to this match simply doesn't know enough about the sport of tennis. Of course, given the poster who made the comment, that comes as no surprise.

You should stop getting your hopes up every time Bolelli beats someone in a first round, especially if it's against Gulbis.

I know the last time Bolelli won back to back matches in an ATP event was at Wimbledon last year (shocking fact nonetheless), but it makes me sad to see him break your heart time after time.

Simone doesn't break my heart. I'm numb to his losses.

As for the Canadian I called unintelligent about tennis, it's called being facetious.

Good job Simone :yeah:

Gulbis has won only 7 matches this year :ignore: 3 of which against low-ranked opponents in Davis Cup.
