Ernests is on cover of Sporta Avīze though ("What is going on with Gulbis?") and there is a recap of 2008 (http://www.nra.lv/zinas/11232-progre...ojas-ranga.htm). Also a part of an interview with his coach http://www.nra.lv/zinas/11231-veters...am-uzvaram.htm.

Sorry I'm not quite keeping up with this thread.... but I just read the articles. Thanks so much Yaniss for the links (and Zahirah, too!). Even with the poor translation, one can get the gist and it seems their assessment of Ernie's year is overall good. What KHW had to say was particularly interesting: "Ernie's style of play is full of risk....and puts pressure on other players." I LIKE THAT! If I had read right, he said that Ernie's error count has progressively gone lower in the course of the year.... Anyway, thanks again! Any post on Latvian culture is much appreciated, too, such as the one on bear vs. sex. LOL

Still no direct quote from Ernests, only comment that he is badly shaken by all these insults (as said by his friends??).

too little, too late, in my opinion. the damage is done, and is much worse when coming from your own people. they've just realized over night that he's a commodity? what an epiphany, now he's 'our outstanding'. wow, what a night they must have had ..

theatre is always an excellent choice. way to go .
thanks for the update

Gulbis. Everything changes.

I am very happy to be alive. There is much fun to be had. Music, movies, books, paintings, drawings... I hope you have these things where you are. If you have them, what does the real world matter anyway? JF - Letter for Children Of The Future

"Mistake in the text? Select it & press Ctrl+Enter" why would they need anyone to report a spelling mistake?

Wink Re: Ernests' news thread!

So, yaniss, do you as a true Latvian prefer bear to everything else too? (At least the number of articles on that subject you posted suggests so...)

Re: Ernests' news thread!

Those bears keep coming back! Imagine you want to win a Latvian men's heart... You have to find a way to stock a big amount of bears in your house
Yeah Yaniss (or is it Janis?), I wanna know that too What does beer means in your life, as a Latvian?
