Gulbis vs Paire by DamirJ
Ernests Gulbis is still trying to push his name at the ATP level and to earn desired ranking so he doesn't have to play qualifying rounds in order to enter any ATP tournament, but the season is not going that well for him. Not only that, but he was one of the biggest talents few years ago, however it is obvious that he stagnated a lot in 2011 and that this season is probably the worst for him in previous five years since he started building up his name. Start of this season was awful for him, having the best result in Delray Beach (tournament that is known for it's poor entry list), where he reached quarter finals losing to Marinko Matosevic, who was out of top 100 that time. Clay court season also didn't bring anything new as his only win was against Mallisse, while he was losing all other matches, including early exits at two challengers he player. Kukushkin defeated him at first round of Roland Garros, while Wimbledon saw him earning unexpected straight sets victory over Berdych in first round, but he was defeated in second round in five sets marathon against Janowicz. Finally, last week he played in Umag, but lost to Verdasco in second round beating previously Fraile in two sets. Here in Gstaad, he won over Italian veteran Volandri in three sets in first round match. As the time goes by, he is looking like just another mediocre player and the chances to reach better things in his life regarding tennis career look slimmer and slimmer.

Benoit Paire, on the other hand, has just started making his name at ATP level and this is his very best season till now at ATP level, although he had two quite successful seasons at Challenger level too. For an unknown player at the beginning of the season, he had quite a great start reaching quarter finals of Auckland Open all the way from the qualifying rounds. Clay court season was especially good for him as he reached quarter finals of Casablanca Open, but the biggest success he achieved was at Serbia Open in Belgrade where he lost to Seppi in finals. It's one of the poorest tournaments on clay looking at the entry list, but it's still an ATP level tournament. Two tournaments on grass were also with satisfying results as he reached semifinals of Hertogenbosch losing to Ferrer in three and third round of Wimbledon where Brian Baker was better in four. Finally, he won here over Bernard Tomic 6:4, 6:0 in the first round of Gstaad Open.
