Rowan here, back from day two of the Heineken Open.
Ernests Gulbis' name is funny, with the s on the end. I like it. Ernests (it's like there are two of him) beat Marcel Granollers in three sets today, it was neat. Granollers has game, he beat James Blake to win that title on clay last year. But everybody knows Ernests is the real star. He goes for his shots, high risk, but high risk equals big rewards when it pays off. When it doesn’t pay off you crash and burn, but boy you do it spectacularly. Ernests has top seed Juan Martin del Potro tomorrow, I’m looking forward to that one. I know Gulbis looks like Napoleon Dynamite, but I always think of him as a young Doctor Doom. Because you know, Doctor Doom comes from Latveria, which kind of sounds like Latvia. So Ernests may be cute and happy now, but one day something terrible will happen to him and he will turn into an evil all-powerful villain. Then he’ll start winning some Grand Slams.
