Finally got round to watching a full match replay of the Gulbis match, was definitely a strange one, but as Andy said it's tough to get any rhythm in a match like that and perhaps it was just a situation of things just not going his way, breaking a string at the wrong time, Gulbis getting inspired Andy way off his usual battling keeping balls in court performance if not playing well.

For those of you said he wasnt trying then why did he break back after going 3-1 down in the second certainly that to me wasnt a sign of tanking?

perhaps also playing singles and then a close doubles match the previous day had affected him more than he thought and please don't forget Djoko had the luxury of most of his matches being at night unless I'm not mistaken?

I saw the match again and saw one incident where Gulbis was grunting when Andy was about to serve, and Andy chuckled under his hat, i think Gulbis is definately one for mind games, which i think doesn't bother him in the slightest.

Not sure how people will take this, but i still feel his singles progress was almost set into stone as soon as he decided to play doubles, I just think once that decision was made, he took the first match to look at where his game was then turned off mentally with Gulbis, not exactly tanking but just not giving it his undivided attention, i have commented elsewhere about this, out of all the tennis players i know, he is someone who would put his friends first before himself, and judging by the progress they have made it seems certain that he is giving that is full attention.

I'm not sure it's a wise position to take but it makes sense if you take what he says about peaking for slams being more important, but it certainly won't do his chance of making number 1 any good, but he has also stated that is not one of his main ambitions.

Just got back after long weekend without news. Entertaining thread. I see the Murraycoaster is alive and well, and Booger is back to being Booger with his merry men doh  Also, interesting year for superb performances at home on the Men's tour this year.  Win or lose against Rafa, Milos has kicked this year's monkey off his back and you can't help but be happy for Canadian tennis.    Would love it if that meant that Kei won Japan, Jo Bercy and Andy London WTFs Whistle
