    The Lord has fallen and it didn't look good, holding the inside of the knee as the trainer is called. That's a meniscus calamity if I've ever seen one.

    To the locker room for treatment or better evaluation.

    Gulbis is back, not sure it's smart from him, continuing this match.

    Serves an ace right away, lol.

    Gulbis back on court.

    A win today would be so crucial (#108 as we speak).

    I just realized that Gulbis somehow is Kyrgios role model.

    Gulbis movement is clearly diminished. What a pity :(

    Nishi finally takes it . 12-10.

    Gulbis is done. needed to win the TB to get a shot of adrenaline.
    Wonder if he'll retire from the match now. He is clearly in pain.

    It will be a tall effort for Gulbis to win this now although he gave a great effort in that tiebreak.

    From disappoint to disappoint, from injury to brain cramp on that high volley flub and it's back to the wall time again for The Lord.
