Re: All About Ernests - Interviews and Articles

I'm a little surprised at that because no matter what his ranking, he's always been remembered by the fans and especially for one with no social media activity, he's really a popular guy.

Only one interview request is crazy.

Here is a long interview after his win vs Seppi. He hits out at hypocrisy in tennis and talks about conditions for lower players in tournaments and his need to have longer hours of practice which he couldn't do last year because of injuries.

“Tennis society has the shortest memory. You play bad for a couple of months and that’s it.

Bresnik protégé dismantels Karlovic and will face Johnson in the semifinal



Ernests Gulbis is the first player to qualify himself for the semifinals of the 2.324 million euro prize Erste Bank Open 500 in the Wiener Stadthalle. The 27 year old Latvian, who dropped to rank 117 in the world ranking list due to an injury, dismantled the Croatian “Service Machine” Ivo Karlovic in 1 hour and 42 minutes with 7:6 (7/4), 7:6 (7/5) and simultaneously reaches his first semifinal of the season. With this win Günter Bresnik’s protégé was able to secure the 180world ranking points, which means Gulbis was able to improve his ranking to 80thin the world.

“In this season ive only played two good tournaments – one in Montreal (Quarterfinals) and now here in Vienna. Due to my wrist injury I had to give up in the first rounds of the US Open and Shenzhen. I also couldn’t play fully in St. Petersburg. That’s why I was convinced to come to Vienna and train with Günter. To do so I had intense treatment on my wirst, and now everything is going great”, says Gulbis who beat the qualifier Lucas Miedler in the first round of the tournament. “I didn’t play that well but in the second round that’s where I really got going, and today it was great” states Gulbis who was in part of the top ten after his semifinal placement in the French Open in Paris last year.

Gulbis will face off against the American Steve Johnson (ATP Rank 47), who beat the number 2 seeded south African Kevin Anderson (ATP-11) in a world class action packed game, which lasted 2 hours and 37 mintues and ended 5:7, 7:6 (7/5), 6:4. The 25 year old Johnson reaches his 3rdsemifinal of the season, after reaching the semifinals in Washington and Winston-Salem (USA).

Record number of visitors in the Wiener Stadthalle

Todays quarterfinals resulted in the largest number of visitors the Erste Bank Open has ever seen. 9.100 visitors came to the Wiener Stadthalle which is the largest number of visitors to ever visit the tournament in 41 years. “We even had to open up the stands for people to stand in, to fulfill all. That never happened before”, says tournament director Herwig Straka as he explains the situation.“, erklärte Turnierdirektor Herwig Straka.

Interview from St-Petesburg before his 1st match:

ERNESTS GULBIS: «I WENT TO THE THEATRE AFTER FATHER’S ADVICE»

Question: What is your attitude towards the tournament that came back to St. Petersburg?

Ernests Gulbis: I was very glad, I wanted to defend my title last year, but unfortunately even the tournament in Tel Aviv was cancelled and I had a free week. I wasn’t actually worried about the free time I had, though I would like to play St. Petersburg Open.

It’s really great the organizers found a way to make sure the tournament is back, I like the new stadium and new practice courts. I always say St. Petersburg is one of my favorite cities.

Question: At first, you didn’t make it to the main draw, were you ready to it?

Ernests Gulbis: It is just me: to drop out of TOP 10, then to come back to TOP 50. How did I find it? I’m glad to play this tournament.

Question: This year you had a nice tournament in Montréal...

Ernests Gulbis: It was the only o’kay tournament I had after a long break, I won more than three matches in a row, there were some reasons why I had an injury. But better late than never... I was in a good form during the hard season in America, but I had injured my hand. Even now I asked the organizers to play on Tuesday because every day is important to recover.

Question: You had a very interesting match against Djokovic... How did you evaluate your shape playing against #1?

Ernests Gulbis: If you’ve watched the game, it was clear. I don’t think I did something wrong, I just didn’t convert match points, but I know I can play and I went to Canada and the USA in a good shape I regret I couldn’t compete in New York.

Question: Ernests, you were introduced to us as a top-10 player (former Top10 in fact). What do think of your chances in St. Petersburg?

Ernests Gulbis: You know, mentally I feel fine, but my physical conditions could be better. But, overall, everything is getting better. I had serious problems with the shoulder at the end of last year. The doctors insisted on a surgery, but I decided to heal it my way. At the moment, I don’t suffer from the shoulder pain. But I had a poor start of the season because of that injury. I began to play better at the tournament in Canada.

Question: Do you think you have chances to get back into the Top10? What do you need to get back to that level?

Ernests Gulbis: I need to train harder for some period of time. As I said, I couldn’t practice full strength for half a year and spend as many hours as I need on a tennis court.

Question: What do you think of Marcos Baghdatis, the player you are supposed to play?

Ernests Gulbis: I played several matches against him long ago. He is in a slightly different situation now, he has a family. So I hope he will be more focused on that in St. Petersburg.

Question: In your previous interview you said Moscow had lots of temptations. And this is one of the reasons why it’s difficult to play in this city. What were your temptations in St. Petersburg?

Ernests Gulbis: Well, my temptation was the theater I went to yesterday. I called my dad and asked him to check out interesting night shows in St. Petersburg. He recommended watching one of the theater plays starring Oleg Basilashvili. What kind of temptation I will have today, I don’t know yet (smiling).

Question: For 19 years the tournament had been held at a different venue. This year it moved to a brand new sports arena. Do you like it?

Ernests Gulbis: I haven’t played on the Center court yet. But I think the whole move is positive, the new venue is closer to the city center, it’s easier to get to from the hotel.
