Why did it have to be an injured player he finally beat in the second round? I can't properly celebrate that :sobbing:

Whoa! :eek: Quarters, at frigging last! :worship: :worship: :worship:

The title of this thread should have "Gulbis finally wins 2 consecutive matches at ATP main draw level again". :p

Well done, Erno. The signs were there last week against Tsonga; he seems to be a more confident player these days. On the other hand, why did Monaco retire?

Back-to-back wins. What a breakthrough.

Keep it up Ernie.

Nice for Gulbis to get another crack at big Jo.

But...

From the ATP site:

"Tsonga will next challenge Latvian qualifier Ernests Gulbis, who was leading Juan Monaco 6-3, 4-1 when the Argentine retired with a right hip injury after 61 minutes of play."

I don't like the sound of that at all. Hope it's nothing too serious.

That is so long to have not been past the 2nd round. And when it finally came it was against someone who has had all of 3 hard court wins this year and ended up retiring from the match...

Nonetheless, it's good to see him back in the quarters.

I don't count qualies, counted only in previous post. Davis Cup matches count in official records, no matter in which Zone matches are playing.

...although if you wish to be utterly picky, you could argue that Gulbis has STILL yet to win back-to-back matches in an ATP main draw this season, by right. :angel: :p

Sure, he was going to beat Monaco anyway, but Pico didn't let him finish the job, proper. :o


...anyway, Gulbis still on course for a potentially year-saving tournament. If he could take Tsonga THAT close last week, I don't see why he can't go a little bit further and finish the job this time. That would take him into a SF against either Wawrinka or Monfils...certainly the former is far from unbeatable on courts like these.

So, yeah, Gulbis could shoot towards/back into top 50 if he can maintain winning ways, although I guess he will probably find some way to lose tomorrow. Not that he should be expected to beat Jo anyway, in all fairness.
