Gulbis vs Brands by Andasolo
ERNESTS GULBIS vs DANIEL BRANDS
As I wrote in my previous previews Gulbis is getting back to the right mindset and physical level to be a good player on tour. Last time I backed him to win 2:0 it was a very similar situation, he had a qualifier up against him and he had 2 weak service games in the opening set and he lost first against DeGreef but DeGreef likes clay and is a typical clay courter but Brands for me is a terrible clay court player. Only weapon what he have is his big serve but Gulbis knows how to beat big servers because he is good at returning big serves and then beating them on the baseline.
As I wrote, only weapon what Brands have is his big serve but it's not nearly as good on clay as it is on other surfaces, his baseline shots are terrible and his one handed backhand is fragile. Pretty much he is like 2 levels worse Karlovic, same baseline game but worse serve.
I saw both Gulbis games in Bastad, he should have won against Khachanov, but he got distracted by the crowd and then he broke mentally, but I believe that the odds on this match are wrong, I would give something like 1.2 for Gulbis to win, so I recommend to back this today because odds could drop
