Foot Fault!

Calling all the lines of professional tennis

Ernests Gulbis Wins One! Whole! Match!

The proof:

From the sounds of it, he tried his hardest to choke the third set tiebreaker and was given the match with an atrocious backhand error from Malisse, but a win is a win and you can’t take that shining achievement away from Mr Gulbis. Now let’s see if he can (*gasp*) win two matches in a row.

Elsewhere, Ryan Harrison fought back from 6-7 2-4* 40-30 to defeat Ricardas (I WILL NOT call him Richard) Berankis 7-6(4) 5-7 6-3. Certainly an impressive comeback from Harrison, and also understandable that Berankis wasn’t able to close it out having only just returned from that pretty serious back injury. Even so, Rikkie B will be very disappointed with this. Thanks to his injury, his ranking has taken a massive plunge, with more points coming off in the near future. He has dropped so low that he’ll be forced to once again play in the US Open qualies.

Anyway, fresh off his first career ATP semifinal, Harrison is in with a very good shot of reaching two semis in a row. Now he just needs to put the twelve year-old on-court tantrums down and all will be good.
