After falling to the enigmatic Ernests Gulbis  in the Delray Beach semifinals on Saturday, Germany veteran Tommy Haas says that the Latvian is much better than his No. 109 ranking suggests. With his win over Haas, Gulbis will rise to at least No. 67 in the rankings and will jump to No. 52 if he beats Edouard Roger-Vasselin for the title.

"When he plays like that, his ranking shouldn't be where it is,'' said Haas, who fell to Gulbis at the 2012 U.S. Open. "I think he's going to be back in the top 100 again, and he should definitely be in the top 50 at all times if he's playing the way he's playing right now. He just needs to dedicate himself and figure out how to continue playing like that.''
