Woah! I had no idea someone made a special thread for Karlis! This should have been mentioned in the Gulbis forum since we have special threads where we talk & post pictures of the other Latvian players in there as well! :bounce: It's nice to give him his own thread!

Did you take those pictures yourself? Where are they from exactly? Love them!

oh, so glad to see that someone is interested in karlis too =)
yeah, these one are mine.i took them in madrid, brezo osuna future, in may 2011.karlis lost in the first round as second seeded though T_T

06-23-2011, 07:36 PM
Yes Karlis has many fans actually! :) I was lucky enough to meet him when he was with Ernests in Cincinnati last year. I got to watch him practice with Hernan Gumy a few times but I haven't been lucky enough to see him compete yet. I did watch his Davis Cup matches last Sept online. I would really love to see him play at the top level!

i also took a picture with him when i got the pics above.yeah, i know im so freaky xD
hopefully youll see him compete really soon =) he plays great!

06-26-2011, 08:46 PM
Yeah he is a great player! I support all the Latvians! :) Hopefully I'll see him again and I'll post some pictures in your thread! :p

thanks for the support!!!does anybody know his next schedule?it would be great!!

06-27-2011, 09:22 PM
I'm sad to say Karlis has decided to retire from being a professional tennis player :sad: He says he's been lacking motivation lately to get to the top 100 and also the many injuries he's had played a part in his decision. His future plans are not fixed yet but he wants to keep doing something tennis-related, probably coaching. Maybe get into a US college and/or tennis academy.

sportacentrs.com says they will have a longer interview with Karlis in a couple of days.

hey guys, do you know if he usually accepts his fans on facebook?xd

hey guys, do you know if he usually accepts his fans on facebook?xd

I don't think so. Him, and the other Latvian players usually keep their facebooks for friends only.

Also, here is a small interview with Karlis in Latvian discussing his choice to retire.

i cant see the interview!please post it again if you can ;)
oh, then im so lucky that he accepted me!he removed his tags in some pics anyway :lol: but he was a really nice guy live.i guess i wont see him again T_T

the interview is like so cute of him =) he is really a nice guy...he will be missed.i hope to see him again in the usa any year...

07-13-2011, 01:31 PM
I'm still hoping he will hit with Ernests when he can, specially during the USA hard court season.:angel: And he said he wanted to coach so hopefully we'll see him coaching around on the ATP tour one day! :p I'm sad I didn't get to see him play Davis Cup for his country live but I'm happy I got to meet him and talk to him a little bit. He is a real nice guy. All the Latvian players seem really nice and friendly. Karlis and I were standing on the side waiting for Ernests to get done with autographs and a girl had a "I <3 Gulbis" shirt and Karlis told her he liked her shirt. She smiled and said thank you but clearly didn't know who Karlis was and didn't seem that interested. I of course found that really adorable. :lol:

he is adorable but maybe he was interested in the girl :lol: he rules haha

07-13-2011, 04:54 PM

She was kind of young looking so I doubt he was trying to hit on her. :lol:

07-16-2011, 02:05 PM
Karlis' name is in the qualifiers draw in Atlanta & in the OOP today. :scratch: I wonder if he is really playing or just forgot to withdraw like Ernests has done before. I really wish Karlis would enter the qualifiers draw in Cincinnati :p

omg unbelievable, please play there karlis!!!

07-16-2011, 03:09 PM
Looks like he is playing! GOOD LUCK KARLIS! Friend Nadia told me that he would have had to sign up on site so that's great! I'm so happy to hear he is playing and this is so unexpected since he said he "retired". I know he said he might play little tournaments every now & then but I didn't think he'd enter an ATP event! Hopefully being with Ernests it will fuel his fire a bit more this summer! Now Karlis, just enter Cincinnati & make me the happiest fan girl! :yeah:

Sombrerero loco
07-17-2011, 11:04 AM
he lost 5 and 3 but anyway so happy to having him back =)

07-17-2011, 04:31 PM
I'm happy he gave it a shot! I hope he continues to play around this summer when he can and stick with Ernests.

Sombrerero loco
07-17-2011, 04:39 PM
yeah!maybe play some more US summer events :)

07-23-2011, 02:28 PM

he should try futures again.he is so young and talented...

07-26-2011, 02:05 AM

He should but it seems he'd rather start school & go for coaching. I was hoping that if he won a few ATP qualifiers that might boost his motivation to continue but with his losses I don't know if that will happen.

Sombrerero loco
07-26-2011, 09:47 AM
yeah...anyway, if he is happy coaching and going to the school, its perfect for me too :)

08-19-2011, 11:05 PM
I was sad Karlis didn't join Ernests in Cincinnati but he is in NYC. (Hopefully I'll see him next week) Jack Sock posted on twitter
Cheapest entertainment of my life playing golf with ernest gulbis, amit and karlis

And he posted these pictures on his facebook.

08-27-2011, 03:48 PM
Yes Jack Sock posted those & no Karlis is not coaching him! I got to see Karlis yesterday! He signed my Latvian flag & I went and sat by him while we watched Ernests practice. I asked him about school and if he's decided where he will study. He is still undecided but he said he is making his decision soon & will for sure do something with sports management! :)

09-03-2011, 01:48 AM
I knew Jack Sock & Karlis were friends so I turned on the Sock/Roddick match in hopes of seeing Karlis in his box! My wish was granted & I am madly in love with whoever is working the camera! They show him a lot! I'll post screen caps tomorrow! :drool:

Sorry I haven't been in here lately. I ment to post some Karlis related things months ago but have since been side tracked. I'll try and get some things together from last season sometime soon. For now Karlis was in Australia with Ernests. You can see some pictures of him in the photo video.

08-04-2012, 03:45 AM
You may already know this but Peer has a lot of picture of Karlis on her public Facebook page! Apparently they've been together since last year. One of the comments said they were hitting partners. I'm surprised I didn't learn about this earlier! I don't follow women's tennis but I would assume someone would have noticed! :lol:

08-04-2012, 11:50 AM
yeah he has pics with her on his fb too :)

08-12-2012, 01:51 AM
Well I can't see those because I'm not his friend on facebook :p

I saw Karlis today & congratulated him on Davis Cup Captain! I took lots of pictures & a couple videos of him practicing with Peer. He is the cutest coach! I probably won't post them until I get home after the tournament. You'll have something to look forward to! ;)
