playing Djokovic in the first round of Brisbane

I guess 2009 will be no different from 2008 in at least one respect

Hello Dimonator.

it annoys me they have to play so early, too, but gulbis just must get his ranking up soon, because he hardly ever is a seed at tournas and he really has the game to be one...

that is exactly the problem

but it will never be solved if he continues to play Nadal and Djokovic in the first and second rounds of every tournament

Well naturally the organisers want to risk losing their top seed first match by giving him perhaps the trickiest floater in the draw :retard:

Good fix :yeah:

It's a more intricate conspiracy going above the organizers :lol:

Del Potro didn't get easy draws, especially in Slams but last year he managed to break the streak of the bad luck by his own good game, same will be with Gulbis, if not this week, then another.

Who cares, honestly? :lol: He's got to learn how to beat players of Djokovic's calibre sooner or later if he doesn't want to be stuck as wasted potential, so why not start now? :shrug:

You'd be saying the draw was rigged if he drew Acasuso and was handed an immediate 5-1 lead. :o

But, seriously, he had numerous stupid defeats last season...if he'd done a little more in even some of the smaller events, he'd probably be ranked at least top 40 by now. Time for him to actually step up to the plate and live up to his hype...and this is an early opportunity to do something, given that Djokovic will also be starting cold. :shrug:

Who cares, If he is not ranked high enuff to be seeded then thats the risk, hes overrated anyway and Djokovic will smash him

Because he easily won the two previous matches, with no obvious chances for the matches to go the other way, because you just know it or you just don't like him and that's that? :p

I do think there's something to be said for playing weaker opponents and building confidence, tough draw for Ernie!

I find that the draw is usually rigged against Qualifer. The ATP always expects Qualifer to play 4 matches in the first round of these tournaments.

Think of how unfair that is for Qualifer. :sad:

BYE gets the worst draws, the poor sod :awww: he must get so fed up, having to play the top seeds all the time.

:lol: Aren't we all mean, nobody has even thought to set up a sympathy thread for BYE, he never gets the respect he deserves!

He has to take control of his own destiny though, whether you think the fix is in or not. He has the talent to do it, but he has to deliver.

When he does, which he will, he will no longer have to worry about such a tough match up at the start of a tournament.

For the part about rigging a draw against him, I hope you were joking. What director with an ounce of sense would EVER kill off a guaranteed sell like Gulbis? The idea is to sell tickets. You want Gulbis around as long as possible.

It's just bad luck but you can always learn off playing the very best players.

Gulbis can't beat top players. No biggie for Faker.

correct

Gulbis' mental capacity was on full display several times last season against Nadal and Djoker. No need to see it happen again in Brisbane. Something like 6-3, 6-2 is a foregone conclusion.

Sounds like Dimonator all right, claiming to be a fan but always keen to drag up unsubstantiated gossip which paints his 'favourites' in the worst possible light :lol:
