Ernests Gulbis: Once again, the Latvian played an entertaining match featuring some exciting shot-making, but he couldn't overcome Monfils. "I would rather win in three sets, 6-1, 6-2, 6-2, and that's it," Gulbis said when asked if he enjoyed playing in a match that fun. "Ugly match but easy win for me, I would be more happy."
