Fine match by Nole, Gulbis as always erratic in important points, surface is fast.

Way too many unforced errors from Gulbis. To name but one example: Djokovic was leading by a break in the first set, Gulbis broke back but then promptly lost serve again (and with it the set) courtesy of a number of shots dumped into the net.

don't be too harsh with Gulbis, honestly he made a good match, and only played bad the last 2 games. He was far better than at Shanghai and USO. He made many winners and not so many UE (too much BH in to the net)
As long as he was playing long and pushing Nole behind the baseline, the chances were even but Nole was obviously far better when stepping into the court.

Gulbis played better than in the last two tournaments. Nole was just too good today. ;)

To that person who asked for 'Julbee':lol: to retire - Ernests just lost to the 3rd best player in the world,who knows how to put opponents in the most awkward places on the court,who soaked up Ernests better shots,and turned defence into attack so well. Ernests did play better today than his previous few tournaments.

Yes Ernests was erratic and ought to have played better when he broke Nole to get back on serve...Fans know the reasons why things go well or badly and stick with them whatever..

Did anyone notice how into Gulbis the crowd were today? Very fair crowd,I really liked that:worship:

And haters I am gonna keep coming in here,oh and thanks for all the merry bad reps I've received this year..in the name of being an Ernests fan,and proud of it:ras: If that makes me somehow an ACC contender,then...bring it on:lol:

Gulbis has basically been on and off from playing and being on the sidelines with a host of issues, so a victory here was absolutely not expected. Gulbis had his moments but he obviously has trouble keeping it up for consecutive points and games. Nole was very sharp, served well, returned well, moved well. Made good shots and he put a lot of pressure on Gulbis to come up with good plays and that was too much for the Latvian.

Gulbis would do well in looking at how Djokovic plays, and incorporating some of that into his game.

This.
I thought he didn't do too bad against an in-form Djokovic,especially comparing to some other mugs.

NID, Gulbis is a mug. Well done Nole for sending this clown packing back to Latvia. Joke of a player and embarrassment to the sport.

Somewhat odd match. Here and there, Gulbis would play 3 points or so absolutely brilliantly, and then he would start spraying crazy errors all over the place. Similarly, he served pretty well and hit some aces at key moments, but then ended the match on a double fault...:confused:

Nole, on the other hand, played pretty solidly throughout - a few loose points, as well as a few glimpses of his absolutely tremendous (pre-Fed) Shanghai form.

By far Nole's worst game, and what I thought was the funniest of the match, was the game in which he was broken late in the first set. Gulbis hits a terrific drop shot that Djokovic does not manage to put back in play, and Novak seems to say to himself, "This uppity son-of-a-bitch thinks he's gonna use one of my weapons against me? I'll show him!" He proceeds in the very next rally to hit a completely stupid drop shot into the net, which bruises his ego even further and causes enough of a lapse in concentration to give Gulbis the next few points and subsequent break. WOOPS. :lol:

Of course, he rallied himself pretty quickly and broke right back to take the first set.

Seingest: Exactly, that was funny to see.
Gulbis will work his way back, hard to get rythm when bad luck draw makes you hit a prime seed at first round in his latest tourneys.
