Anyone else care? I had a small vBet on the Latvian so I had a vested interest in the result :p

Small upset here.

Gulbis is doing really well for himself this year.

Vamos, Ernie.

He's got a reasonable chance for the 4th round :)

Great result, he can send Berrer back to Germany for sure. Go Ernests

I care :p :banana:

Good to see him winning a tight match, based on the scoreline.

Ernests is really cute and he has a gorgeous two-hander. Pilic was pumped after the match.

I watched the first two sets and fell in love with him today :yeah: I hadn't see him play before, but I'm definitely paying more attention to him now :)

An upset on par with Mardy Fish losing at Roland Garros.

:lol:

Truer words were never spoken - or written in this case - yet I was swimming against the vTide on this one as more people here were backing the Italian :confused: Normally I'm the one looking for an excuse to bet on the player with long odds so I was kinda surprised because, even knowing nothing about Gulbis beforehand, a quick results comparison was all it took for me to conclude the Latvian was rightfully favoured to win... Now I'm really hoping to get a chance to actually see him play.

He looked good, as savestheday said. I expect him to make some waves in the near future.

Potito :(

Ernests is a good player, and this surface is extremely fast, so good fight anyhow.

The only surprise was that Ernie needed a TB against the Potato. This is the perfect time for him to peak. A run here should give him the confidence for a strong indoor season.
