What's happening with our kiddo today? Never seen him so stressful, he's usually very calm, but today the racket has been thrown a number of times already...

Aaaaa...

C'mon, get yourself together and win this in 3!

:haha:

He was a very bad one when he played DC against Poland last year! I already posted it in his thread, the press office I work for has his broken racquet that we'll sell on e-Bay :p

That Juska guy is very nervous as well, but he's awesomely nice.

Yeah, Juška is very nervy, but as a kid he was much more nervier, I remember when he was some 13 or 14... omg, the racket had been thrown anywhere and he was cursing all the way when smth was going wrong with his game :D

In 2004 he broke all his racquets in Poznan challenger and somebody lent him one to play with at Sopot ATP quallies.

He lost there in the 2nd round but I don't remember to whom. Seppi I think.

He deserves to lose. Gulbis today is a one-trick pony.

Gulbis and Korolev have some similar game. They do know how to play it soft and usually do it in important moments.

CooCooCachoo

Hold, Eddie :yeah:

From what I have seen so far, this is not a good comparison. Korolev is much much more complete.

You are right, but it depends on a match. Korolev is more experienced, also on ATP level, so that's where the impression is taken from. But Ernests needs one year more to make it equal.

When I first saw Evgueni he was a nobody and I saw him in Groningen 2004. He was much more complete than Gulbis today.

Congrats Gulbis :yeah: He did finally throw in some variety the last two games.

I think Gulbis did not show his potential today. I :hearts: Eddie, but Eddie is not as talented as Gulbis, so kudos for him for keeping up with the Latvian.

Congrats also on breaking the Top 100 :yeah:

CooCooCachoo

No Gulbis in Cherbourg, so Eddie can take the title there :angel:

Gulbis should have won more easily, I think. But he did not play too well and if his serve had not helped him, he would have lost.
