What an exiting match!
On paper this match is: World # 104 vs world # 18. Race 97 vs 154

But this match is also a duel between a guy who was a Masters winner, Nitto SF and top 10 player last year against another former top 10 player and great talent whom many predicted a great career.

Currently they are 97th respectively 154th in the race. Their H2H is 1-1 but last week Gulbis beat Sock after losing the first set on his way to a great final run that earned him a SE into Basel MD.

Obviously I got Gulbis but the bookies back the guy who was not able to win 2 consecutive singles matches this year. Am I the only won who is exited about this match?

Their match in Stockholm was very entertaining. Some nice rallies, Sock was hitting 7979 km/h FW winners and Gulbis was hitting BH winners for fun.

Having said that I somehow believe the re-match will be a stinker. I don't think Gulbis will even make it close this time. He hates playing in Basel, has never won a match there and he might be tired.
