Re: Ernests' news thread!


Latvian magazine "Klubs" (sort of Latvian FHM) today published an article about Ernests with title „Flight of Wonder bird”. I read it on online magazine.
As expected, no comments from Ernests or his father, and the general tone is rather bitter. There are comments from Jānis Juška (Andis father) and Dzelde, and also some journalists describe incidents in the past when they were disappointed with attitude of Ernests or his family. Initially Milēna agreed to answer some questions in written form, but later (after conversation with Ernests) refused, however they published her letter anyway (it is pretty similar to her previous interview with "Diena" in 2008).
I can not translate all text, sorry, but main idea of the article is nothing new - his attitude so far is not too serious, sometimes he acts in completely incomprehensible way, he (or his father) hates Latvian press and his future depends only on him.

One thing I never heard before - according to Juška Ernests once has said that he will retire from tennis if he will not reach top ten in two or three years time…
Here is the link: http://www.manizurnali.lv/flash/66798/
It allows three close-ups for free for new magazines, so just go to page 32/33 and click on pages for close-up, there are three spreads overall.

If you can not see the original article, here are also some screen shots from me (if anyone wants, I have close-ups of the text too)

Happy New Year to all!

I hope it was just his whim when he was young and impulsive

Re: Ernests' news thread!

Thank you for the article, Māra I just read it. I didn't like the tone of the article at all, it was too yellow and bitter and it's really not worth translating. There's almost nothing new there.

I wouldn't be surprised if the comment about leaving tennis if he didn't reach top 10 in two or three years was taken out of context or taken seriously when it was meant as a joke. The whole article just reeks bad And the fact that they published Milena's letter although she had asked them not to just shows what kind of ethics and credibility the magazine has.

A lot of the article was focused on Ernest's father and how big his influence has been in Ernest's career. According to the magazine, it was his father who always discouraged Ernest from speaking to the Latvian press, it was not his own policy.

Re: Ernests' news thread!

I read this on the ATP website.

Russian Ernests Gulbis also posted an opening day upset at the ATP World Tour 250 tennis tournament in Doha, ousting No. 6 seed Albert Montanes of Spain 6-2, 7-5 as he fired 13 aces and won three of his 10 break point chances.

I know he has been hanging out with Marat a lot but isn't he still suppose to be labeled as Latvian?
