- Your man lost his advantage, and Gulbis has turned this match around, going ahead 6-5.
I'm supporting Gulbis in this match as I prefer his game. Edit:
JJ not able to serve well in that game & gets broken by EG who takes the first set 75, and has the advantage of serving first in the second set. I hope they both play well as I'd like to see a good contest.
Loool! There goes the racquet. EG disgusted at losing his game. Good job from JJ there to take the break. And he's serving well now.
And once again - Looool! EG served underarm on the last serve of his service game. The man is a character, no doubt, but I'm not impressed with this silliness. But he is playing well.
JJ played a sloppy couple of points there & has been broken back.
Some quite superb play by JJ in the last game - what a forehand cross court! But EG playing well too & holding serve to go up 32.
What outstanding play by JJ there. Outright winners on the run, outplaying his opponent with considerable panache. And he breaks to go up 43.
Let's see what EG can do here. He played as well as he could, with a couple of winners, but JJ holding serve.
Gulbis serving well enough,but JJ taking it to 30-40 from 0-40 before EG took the game. He looks ready for a battle. I'd forgotten that he's been off with an injury & this is his first tournament back.
And JJ serves it out in style to take the second set 64. I'm looking forward to the 3rd set & hope it's a cracker.
Well, whilst talking to oneself has its advantages, as this place is emptier than the stands in Stockholm, I'll be off. Williamchung
- as things stand, I give JJ the edge, and think he'll win it. But I hope EG has other ideas.
