There is a small article about Ernests in the magazine “Kas jauns”. It is yellow press, but seems that Milena indeed spoke with them. Nothing very important, but…

She said that it was very hard year for Ernests and for the moment he was seriously considering retirement - he was tired of tennis player’s lifestyle . Then he spoke with his friends (both from tennis community and outside), calmed down and decided to continue. His family was great support.

She also said that her career as an actress is over. She considers starting small business, maybe something connected with tennis and she even asked Ernests if he would like to help her after his retirement. In answer he said: “Nu gaidi, mammu” (you can wait, mom)

Many thanks to post here!! it is nice to have news and I am glad they are good new at the end...I guess he was so frustrated about no results during this season but I am sure he will be better if he really wants to (which it is his case!!) and no injuries!!
I hope it will be a good week in Helsinki!

Re: Ernests' news thread!

Thank you for posting this. I didn't know his confidence crisis had been that serious but I'm happy to read Milena's words about Ernests. She says Ernests appreciates the God-given talent for tennis that he has, and he has decided that tennis is what he needs to be doing right now.

Upsets Of The Year - Nos. 6-10

8. Ernests Gulbis d. Tomas Berdych, 7-6(5), 7-6(4), 7-6(4), Wimbledon First Round
Ernests Gulbis had lost in the first round in eight of his past nine Grand Slam championships ahead of his Centre Court match against 2010 runner-up and sixth seed Tomas Berdych. "I saw the draw and I was really happy. I wanted to play [a] first round against a tough opponent,” said Gulbis. But when the free-swinging Latvian is on-form, he is an irrestible force. Coached by Gunter Bresnik, who had worked some technical changes to Gulbis’ groundstroke, the mercurial talent caught Berdych cold in a stunning victory over two hours and 34 minutes. World No. 87 Gulbis barely blinked, hitting 62 winners including 30 aces, winning 84 per cent of his first serve and committing 33 unforced errors in a straight-sets win. Asked how he had closed out the match, Gulbis said, straight-faced, “I’m well known for my mental strength, ask around. In practice I beat everybody." It was Berdych's first opening round loss at Wimbledon since his debut in 2004 (l. to Benneteau).

Top 5 Comebacks Of The Year

ATPWorldTour.com reviews the Top 5 comebacks of the year.

5. Ernests Gulbis d. Andreas Haider-Maurer, 2-6, 7-5, 6-1 – Saved 1 M.P., bet-at-home Cup Kitzbühel First Round
Throughtout his career, Ernests Gulbis has often struggled to win matches after losing the first set (24-91 lifetime). On 11 occasions in 35 matches this season, he had done so. But on five occasions, including once in the unique environment of Kitzbühel – perched 762 metres above sea level – the talented Latvian held his nerve for comeback wins. Against Innsbruck resident Andreas Haider-Maurer, a ninth first-round exit of the season was on the cards when seventh seed Gulbis trailed the crowd favourite by one set and 2-5.

But Gulbis battled hard for a remarkable reversal of fortunes. After breaking back to 4-5 in the second set, the World No. 67 faced one match point. With calculated precision, Gulbis struck an ace. Rewarded for his persistence, he edged the second set and saved three break points in the decider, when he won 14 of his 20 service points. Gulbis won 10 of the last 11 games to prevail in two hours and three minutes. It was one of the year’s most dramatic comebacks. Two days later, Gulbis lost to Rogerio Dutra Silva in the second round.

I know he was thinking about skipping AO and I think that is a smart plan! I'm so excited for next season!
