Re: Ernests' news thread!

Can you believe I didn't even notice at first. I was like, why the hell is that first word in bold? But went and read it.

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

Someone also made a thread about it in the sportacentrs forum. One of the replies there was that Ernests swears too much in Russian during matches so people forget that he's Latvian

He does like to swear in Russian. Did anyone catch what he screamed during the match. I'm always curious to know what he says.

We would only be glad to have him in our team, since Russians are all being sold to KAZ.

I think we have already several discussions about non-quotable Russian swears by Ernie

Re: Ernests' news thread!

ATP journalists are not the only ones who should take journalism classes... A french reknown daily newspaper "Le Figaro" made a mistake about his nationality. Except that they called him "the Estonian". How difficult is it to remember someone's nationality ?

For french speakers: http://http://www.lefigaro.fr/flash-...ur-federer.php

Moreover, in this article, the "journalist" said at the begining that Gulbis won over Seppi, but then Seppi will meet Federer in quarter

Re: Ernests' news thread!

Hi, sorry to be a little off topic, but was wondering, does anyone know if ernests is on facebook? Because there are like 6 listings for him, but most seem unauthentic, except for this one

http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?...?id=1789336083

Its the one which has 82 friends, in case you can't use the link

I thought it might be that for several reasons:
1) It's (he's? lol) friends with andis jushka, david jushka and dennis pavlos, igor kunitsyn and karlis lejieiks

3) I really doubt Ernests would be a fan of him self (thrice!) as some of the other pseudo accounts are

4) I really doubt that he would write on so many people's walls and make it public (as some of the other groups are)

2) Two of his friends have the last name of "Gulbe", most notably Laura Gulbe. And if you look closely, she looks the same person as in the madrid player's party (see here http://ernestsgulbis.wordpress.com/2...players-party/)

Any thoughts? Think I might have found the real him? Has this been already found out?

Haha sorry for my stalkerish tendencies, I have no intentions of adding him/pestering him anything creepy like that, I'm just bored and therefore stalking ernests XD

Maybe someone wants to translate this:

Even with Google translater I understood, that it was a black day for him.
