He is just playing with his chain.
Ernests was in terrible mood in the presser. Pretty rude. Probably he isn't a pussycat at all.
Very bad boy.
All this makes me worship Nadal's attitude. They ask him a million stupid questions and he is still friendly. Like Gulbis acted towards the latvian coach was weird too. I can understand that he is not happy with the tennis situation in Latvia, but it is a country with no history in this sport. Funny is, that he wants people to watch tennis, but he tells all the time, that he doesn't watch any sport.
At least he was nice with the kids. All this makes me think, that Gulbis is still very immature.
Ernests is HUMAN! He can be very friendly and then if someone pisses him off or if he feels the need to be defensive then he will show that. Everyone does that. To compare Ernests to Rafa is pretty ridiculous. Rafa is worshiped in Spain where as Ernests isn't as important. The press has been terrible to him and his family in the past which has cause Ernests to be more guarded. A lot of players get irritated with questions. Look at Roddick. Have you ever met Ernests? I have. He was nothing but sweet to me! He smiled and laughed and treated me so kind every time I was around him! He loves children and encourages kids to play a sport. He doesn't tell people to watch tennis. He said that he hopes there will be a goood Davis Cup turn out and he wanted them to really cheer and show their support. He does watch sport but not often. He doesn't watch sport like a fan and prefers to get out there and play them. Which like I said, he encourages kids to do. Anyway, Ernests is still young. He can be very mature but at the same time he has struggled with desire in the past. He is still learning and getting his priorities together. You can see the change. Like the other girls said, he is only 22. That is very young. And I take offence to your comment since I will be 21 and me and Ernests have a similar personality.
Now, about the coach. I responded to this on Tumblr the other day. Yes I noticed him and the Latvian coach didn't speak much. Ernests kept his focus on Hernan like he does every other match. It may be strange but it's pointless for us to make comments considering we don't know the reason. And I'm sure there is no ill feeling between them.Karlis even turned around and spoke with Hernan during change overs and sometimes they just sat there in silence. So unless the coach makes a comment about their relationship I think it's useless to talk about. So in conclusion, if you respect the way Rafa acts to Ernests then talk him up on Rafa's forum. We love and respect Ernests and understand he has different emotions. It's nice and refreshing to hear someone speak their mind.
I don´t know how old are you, but this sentence makes me think you are not more than 16. To call a 22 year old male for a man is mostly allways an overstatement. I personally can´t think of anyone I have known at that age acting all mature and serious...boys will be boys and thank god for that
All in all I think people shold behave more like children even if it entails racket throwing
