Iam watching him now in Vienna.

Have you ever seen ugly forehand like that?

Is like a 3.5 NTRP forehand.

Who is trainer him?his father?

He did beat Fed so there was no "near" about it.

He almost beat Nadal on clay with that forehand. He had his old motion when he played Nadal,he changed in 2011 i think

Old news. Everyone saw it when he beat Berdych 7-6 7-6 7-6 at Wimbledon this year, then lost to that Polish guy in the next round (Janowicz?).

I"m only an old 4.0, but that looks like a 7.0 forehand to me.

Your sig is ridiculous,*********. And what makes it funnier is Mike Shams has been on my ignore list for the longest time now. Am I ignoring myself? :lol:


Gulbis did do something to his forehand,and it wasn't for the better. It's almost like he scraping the ball up off the ground his take back is so low. It was much better before.

Why did he change it? It was a monster in 2010. It's not exactly like he's going places with his new forehand.

the takeback means absolutely nothing. It is about what happens in the forward swing.

gulbis has good technique. he was erratic with his old FH and still is:). but he does have a ton of power.

That forehand still has him on the pro tour, which is more than you can say I'm sure.

True but it's still totally different from the way he used to hit. He looks uncomfortable hitting it,too. His old forehand was flatter but much better than this.

Agreed; the old forehand looked so much better; wonder why he changed it, :(

It seems like several pros are changing their forehands for loopier backswings, possibly to add more pace to their shots. Nadal did it as well, and Djokovic smoothed his out. Federer seems to be the only one that actually went to a more abbreviated stroke over the years.

it looks really clumsy.
anyway i lost my hopes. and i really love his game. when he is in the mood to actually play, of course.

Here are Gulbis and Murray FH. IMO both look good.
