Latvian Player Ernests Gulbis goes through first round in US OPEN

Latvian young talent Ernests Gulbis, who last year got to the fourth round in US OPEN, yesterday won the game vs. Thomas Johansson. The first and the third set didn’t go so easy for Gulbis. The final result was 7:5, 6:1, 7:6. As we can see in the first round Johansson almost got to the tie break, but Gulbis again proved how powerful is his serve and both forehand and backhand. The next set he won easily, taking a lot of break points which led him to the third set where Thomas Johansson gathered his strength and tried to win Ernests Gulbis.  Third set went very equally but in the end again Gulbis proved that he is the young and strong talent and he can show everybody how to play tennis in a really good level. If we remember the game in Wimbledon were Gulbis played against Nadal, we can see how strong Gulbis actually is. For Christ sakes he almost won Nadal! No.1 racket in the world! And last year he went as far as 4th round in the US Open, so lets wait what this year’s US Open will bring to us, what surprises it will show to us. I hope this year Gulbis get even further than the 4th round!
