Re: Rafachat - vol. 79. Rafa to win the WSOP next year! Bamos! :rocker2:
I saw a printed quote from his mother that Ernests had a really deep confidence crisis this year, he doesn't like the tour life much (traveling all the time) and he was seriously considering retiring. But then he talked with some buddies of his (some tennis players and some not) and apparently he decided that he should use the talent that God has given him after all. So now he's trying hard to get back into the top 100 for the AO. He had that leg injury that derailed him a bit so I don't know if he'll manage it. But he definitely seems to be trying to give one more push to his career
Ernests Gulbis in Indian Wells 2013:
"If I finished my career right now I would have a lot of regrets. I would be hearing all my life, 'He was a talented guy but never made it.' I want to be the talented guy who changed his mind and made it."
