Gulbis is GOATing with only losing one game.  :king:
 
The guy is ranked in the 900's and plays doubles for the most part.

Tipsy falling into obscurity again and Youzhny completely falling off the wagon after a solid US Open.

Rafa is the FIRST to qualify for WTF this year! :D

I hope Gulbis is working and not fallen back into the old mental trap he was in.  :)>>>>
 
We will see.

He's only in the quarters I think. But doesn't have the top players there so should make it.

It's Garcia-Lopez vs Gulbis for the crown.
 
That Gulbis is really hard to figure. He lost one set with winning only one game, he's done this before this year.
It seems he just blows off sets now and then.  :rofl_2:
But that's part of the Gulbis deal, it comes with the package.

Ernie pulled out a strange match.
Lost the first set and down 4-1 in the second set before going on to win 11 straight games.
 
Now that was a match.

Yeah GGL had a match on his rackquet but I'm glad Gulbis pulled it.
Not sure if it was because of GGL's injury but after being a set down and at 2-4 in 2nd, Gulbis started playing so well :cool:

Watching tennis was beyond my schedule last week - I couldn't even watch the finals on Sunday. This is a good video of the final if anyone is interested.

Gulbis vs Garcia Lopez St Petersburg Open 2013 Final


Gulbis made me laugh by smashing his racquet in the second set & then throwing it to the crowd - presumably on the basis that it would be worthwhile souvenir!  :))    Congratulations to him for winning the title, but this match was lost by G G-L.  He might be carrying an injury.

yeah I saw that couple of times  :))
 Last time was Haas when he smashed a racquet and gave it to a little kid who couldn't keep the grin of his face afterwards. Great moment.  :gleam:
