Gulbis vs Devvarman by Beatle

Well, I usually skip Gulbis's maches since I lost a lot on him, but I feel that the he will play those autumn tournies a little bit better. First stop - Bangkok. Ernests planned to play qualies here but suddenly Julien Benneteau withdrew from competition and this automatically catapulted Ernests into the main draw. For the first time in my life I was watching him live in Jurmala, Latvia at Davis Cup competition versus Slovenia week ago. He showed some really good performance and smashed appr. 20 aces during a 4-set battle against Gregor Zemla. Ernests now has a new coach, argentinian Hernan Gumy. I saw him too together with Ernests and after the match coach made him to run around the tennis centre and he also spoke with him a lot about his performance. This coach is something new, something Ernests needs to win matches. He's more disciplined now, he has a tutor that can always give him a valueable advice before, during and after the match. So now I expect Gulbis to play better.

Indian received a wildcard here so he also didn't play any quallies before the match. Devvarman is currently ranked No. 131 but has recorded wins over big names like Marin Cilic, Carlos Moya and Ivo Karlovic this year. Devvarman is using a counterpunching style which will be a tricky task for Ernests how to crush this strategy. However, Devvarman doesn't posses a powerful serve so I think Ernests will use this. Anyway, Gulbis has better serve than Devvarman.

The winner of this encounter will not have it easy as their next opponent is the top seed and defending champion, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

I think Ernests has picked some form during last week and I expect him to pass through first round today at 10:00 cet time.

Best of Luck.
