LOL nice troll thread. Said no one ever.

Beating Mugerer means shit. Even Gulbis himself didn't even celebrate it. He knows players like Berdych are much more dangerous That's when he'll have a real match. I think Tomas will win that one, but should be a cracker.

This has nothing to do with Federer. He beat him 4 years ago.

Gulbis taking a page from Rafa's book and using a tactic medical timeout. I'd say No.1 in 2 years and 7 French Opens.

The medical timeout can't take the win from Gulbis, he played really solid in the 5th set

After years of soul-searching, ups and downs, Ernests Gulbis has found the way to deliver his best tennis on a consistent basis. His reward? A place for the first time today in the Top 10 of the Emirates ATP Rankings. He is the first Latvian man to achieve the feat.

On his run through to his first major semi-final at Roland Garros, Gulbis stunned Roger Federer in five sets in the fourth round and dismissed Tomas Berdych for the loss of nine games in the quarter-finals, before finally falling in four sets to Novak Djokovic last Friday.

The Paris result came on the heels of compiling a 27-10 record through the first five months of the season, highlighted by winning two titles in Marseille (d. Tsonga) and Nice (d. Delbonis).

The 25-year-old Gulbis rises from No. 17 to No. 10 in the Emirates ATP Rankings. As he now turns his attention to the grass-court swing, beginning at the Aegon Championships this week, the Riga native has set his sights on the World No. 1 mantle.

“I'm not going to celebrate,” said Gulbis after his defeat to Djokovic. “It's not enough. I need to reach more now. Now I'm addicted to success, really. I need to make this extra step now. I'm extra motivated.”

When pressed by journalists on far he thought he could go in the Emirates ATP Rankings, Gulbis responded, "All the way to No. 1."


Reflecting on his battle with Djokovic, Gulbis admitted he hadn’t been able to produce his best level due to nerves and tension, but is looking to take the positives from the experience against six-time Grand Slam champion Djokovic.

“I'm not used to playing these kinds of big matches,” said Gulbis. “It's just normal that I felt extra nervous and extra tense. I can take one positive out of the match: that I could still win the third set [when I was] feeling that nervous and that extra tired. That's one thing that I take for the future.

“The more I play these kinds of matches, the more I'm going to get used to these situations. For me, I take only the positive stuff out of it. I need to be in these situations once, twice, three times and then I can maybe make that extra step. I enjoyed it.”

[...]

“Now I really understood every feeling and I learned from it and I tried to enjoy it. And even if it's like negative emotions, like being nervous and being tense, I tried to even enjoy that and understand it, to understand how I can be better next time.”
