Schiavone and another girl I didn't look at together with their entire teams, obviously I had something better to do at that time But they seemed to be in a rush or something. Ernie just returned the last ball when Schiavone already hit one They literally kicked him off court.

Then they sat down for like 5 more minutes and just... laughed

I'm just thinking he should just come to RG today, practice a bit, hang around, have ice cream. Who votes yes?

French journalist, Carole Bouchard, twitted that she met Gulbis after his match, he was not depressed but deception was felt. He said he loves his tennis life, but not on a day like this.
He was joking and had the nicest smile of the day, she said...Well, that is encouraging. Here is the article she wrote afterwards: in french though.
I may try to translate later.

"The quiet defeat"

I really can't wait for the day he'll overcome this!!
Always support him, always!!!
Ellen, now the only thing could make me happy are your pics ihihihihi
bye bye
That is another possibility indeed, but only he knows what it really is.

I took a lot of pictures today because I considered he might disappear into the darkness after this day, which he did But I have 2 more days of Roland Garros ahead so you'll have to wait until I'm home!

Thanks for your update Ellen.

He just doesn't have a good time at Grand Slams does he?

Shame.

As I tweeted, he was in a very good mood at practice. Asking Karlis to keep serving so he could return, even when half of the WTA was on court waiting for him to get off So maybe he took it too lightly, he was too relaxed, he does indeed have a virus and feels tired because of it, I don't know and I don't know when we will. So from that point on, the only way to go is forward. On to the next...

Sad, indeed. Would have been nice to see him take Delpo. Hope he keeps working hard. With 9 DF and 55 errors, he can't win that way. I think he is working with Sergis now from the Adidas team. Don't know what is wrong, maybe just lack of form.
We will miss him meanwhile until grass comes.
We still hope for better results soon.

So it's not a matter of confidence...his game is apparently not there either.
He needs a coach and he has a lot to work on. period.
