Default Rotterdam R2 WWW: Ernest Gulbis vs Juan Martin del Potro

Another tough match for Delpo against a Gulbis that seems to be playing very well at the moment. Of course it could be a routine win for JMDP if Gulbis has one of his usual stinkers, but if he's on it will be a very tough match. After all, their last match in LA 2011 ended in a Gulbis win in straights.

Hopefully Juan can pull through.

Hopefully Ernests can pull through. More likely he won't though.

This SHOULD be fairly routine for JMDP, right?

If Gulbis pulls his best Safin impersonation, I wouldn't count on it Unfortunately he does that once in a blue moon.

Well... I hope Gulbis plays his best because it's enjoyable to watch. Head says Delpo in 2.
But what I really want is a great agressive 3-setter, whoever wins.

Del Potro should be to consistent for Gulbis. But we all know how good Gulbis can be, so if he will play at high level at least hour and half, he can win in straight sets, why not. But Delpo should be to consistent, i mean he should play powerfull from both sides without errors, while Gulbis might self-destruct

This is not going to be easy at all. del Potro was one of the players Gulbis beat the last time he won an ATP title. I'm picking Delpo in 3 but I can as easily see Gulbis winning.

DelPo should take this one.

Gulbis has tons more potential/skill than guys like Tomic or Dimitrov but never had much drive at all.

DelPo in two I think, but Gulbis if on form will stretch this to 3.

Gulbis is unpredictable. He can beat Delpo. It'd be much like what Chardy did at AO.

I'd say peak Gulbis= Gulbis in 2 tough sets. If mug Gulbis shows up, 2 easy sets Delpo...

LOL stop overhyping this MUG; this guy plays a good match from time to time, most of time he plays challenger level losing to even bigger mugs than him.

DelPo in two easy sets.

Could go either way, of course, depending on which Gulbis shows up, not just for the result but it would be either an amazing match to watch or an awful errorfest. With that said, i'm hoping to see an inspired Ernests at action but with Juan holding his own and prevailing in the end!

Does the fact that Delpo didn't commit to play DC this year and past performances with the ARG team influenced greatly in perhaps not liking him as much? I'm curious since you happen to like the best brand of attacking tennis, shotmaking, and we know Juan can be amazing to watch in that department when he is in the zone.
