Not that bad for an 18 year old, it's his first time in main draw in ATP tournament, and his chances of progressing to 1/2 also isn't that bad.
Vik, Dlouhy, who's next, another Checzh (Hernych) ? :devil:

I am hoping to sell it one day on e-Bay :)

The crowd was cheering like crazy at his doublefaults so it didn't help him to be focused back then.

It's a shame that I wasn't there :o Anyway I don't understand how can it be that in 1st rounds he had to face so low ranked opponents in a tournmanet with prize money 1000000 ??
No 81, 108, and now in 1/4 199 or 80!!! It's a must use opportunity for Gulbis.

The best players in the world, don't like moving to Russia in Autumn. Maybe it's too cold ;)

Impressive debut at atp level, but how many players would wish to draw dlouhy for a chance to make an atp level quarter final?

And he will face either Hernych or Arthurs for a spot in the semis.

Probably the two weakest players left in the draw.

Vamos Gulbis :rocker2:
