Whenever it's a start of a new season, you really can't miss if you go against Gulbis. Today he is playing against a pretty decent qual/Chal. level player Marius Copil. Gulbis is higher ranked (81) than his today's opponent (165) but ranking doesn't matter really when you lay Gulbis. Marius Copil played challengers indoors until mid-November last year. Gulbis ended his season at the end of October, but to be honest, his last 2 matches were as always fixed losses because he really did not play. I did not see him preparing to this new season really... He relaxed and did some fun stuff in Austria and as far as I know him, he did not put enough efforts into preparation once again and probably will leave Australian continent without any wins this year, like he did last year.
Gulbis usually struggles in AU, because of humidity, hot and poor acclimatization, poor self-discipline. I am not sure how Copil looks like as of now, so that's why my stake is only 7 this time. Let's see if my buddy Ernests manages to surprise us today.
