20:00 – Gulbis v Karlovic
Rankings are 72 and 33. They haven’t met before.
Both men have been impressive this week and this looks like being a close one.
Karlovic has been solid on serve all week and at 1.70 this looks an ideal situation to back him on serve. I would expect Karlovic to take the title and Gulbis will need to work hard to break down Karlovic’s serve.
Update: Surprisingly easy win for Gulbis. 6-2, 6-3.
I have done a video of the first set which hopefully will be on the members website tonight.
