Ernests Gulbis Wins Second ATP Title in Los Angeles
I am one of the fans of Latvian Ernests Gulbis, so I'm really happy to learn that he won his first ATP title this year in LA. This is his second title already, after winning Delray last year. 2011 has not really been a good year for him but hopefully, by winning this title, he can slowly bounce back since the hard court season is just on its way.
He won over local favorite Mardy Fish (#8) in the final, 57 64 64. In the semifinal, he won over Alex Bogomolov Jr. (#56) 62 76(4). In the quarters, he won over Juan del Potro (#20) 62 64, showing how ready he is to tackle the big guys!
In the second round, he won over American Daniel Kosakowski (#390) 62 64. In the first round, he took care of veteran Belgian Xavier Malisse (#42), 26 63 76(5), where he almost lost!
