Either Babelfish or Google translated the original Russian article as 'wrist' it could be wrong. eSports.lv only mentioned arm in general.

Oh dear.

Ernests seems much too well-adjusted and happy of a person to cut himself. Get well soon.

I hope the injury is not serious… If it's not serious and if he was drunk when it happened, now he must be a little bit… embarrassed, with all this 'hype' in the latvians and russians medias…
Get well soon Ernests

I thought I would have died, at first, when I read the news.
As Im still alive, I will try not to speculate (not in here, at least, as I know it would be impossible to me not to wonder about how the hell this could happen). But they should definitely let us know how he is exactly. I agree about privacy, but I'd like to save my mental sanity, too. And I cant if they dont let me know how ernests is.

I feel very worried, but the worst part is that we actually don't know anything! I hope it's just some stupid speculation

Default Re: Ernests' news thread!

isn't esports.lv usually pretty reliable? I know they took the information from another site, but still...

and that correction with the accident theory smells like a lie to me. but it's hard to judge if you don't even understand the original language lol

and I would love to know what the comments on esports.lv are saying

This cannot be happening. It has got to be an accident. He wouldn't possibly do it on purpose, would he Ernests, I hope he recovers soon.

Please bear in mind that they have not been confirmed to be true - Ernests has neither affirmed nor denied them.

I hope for Ernie's sake that this is not true and just a mean-spirited rumour. Take with a very, very big grain of salt - you will need it.

http://esports.lv/teniss/28102008-kas_noticis_ar_gulbi

Ernests allegedly cut open a vein in his arm on the night of 23/24 October after his loss to Murray. It occurred in Hotel Europe, where he stayed in St Petersburg. He was reported to have lost a lot of blood in the hotel and at the Medem clinic, where he was rushed. Fontanka.ru claimed to have verified that Ernests checked into the clinic, but the medical staff said that information will only be released to relatives.

---

UPDATE: eSports.lv has updated its article to say that it's an accident and not a deliberate injury. Still no word from the Gulbis camp.

hey guys!
guess what? the link doesn't function anymore. this is even more confusing, because i considered this site a good source for news about ernests.
i read about this horrifying news on z's site, last night. i'm a zombie right now, because i didn't get any sleep at all. i would really like to know something official, no matter how crazy or embarrassing it could be. at this point i figure that if it was a joke or prank or something like that, it would have to be the masterpiece of a truly deranged individual. if it did happen (accident or not), it's even scarier and not having anything 'official' could lead to things getting out of control.
i’m for privacy and completely separating the professional from the personal BUT a short and compelling (as in rigorous i'm thinking) press release stating what has happened and how he is right now, in simple words would calm everybody down and would put an end to speculations.
it is going to be very difficult, for me at least, to just wait for something official, and I hope they will do make one.
all i can say is get well soon, ernests!
take care everybody.

the site itself doesn't function at all, not just the initial link. at least here. can anyone get on esports.lv at this time?

I didn't publish it did you read about it in the comments? I wanted to avoid alarming people unnecessarily over the site, because a post there would make this rumour too... Official.

eSports.lv itself is down I just read the article a couple of hours ago, it was still there.

yeap, i read about it in the comments area, i'm sorry if my post implied such thing. IT IS NOT WHAT I MEANT. i should have been more careful in expressing my thoughts.

well, then i hurried this morning to the office for nothing i suppose . i wanted to read (to try at least, since it was in latvian ) their version. i'll just have to wait for the official release.

Oh no, don't worry about it as Aliah could vouch for, I've been awake since 3am this morning (it's 7pm now) and I've reached the stage where I'm not quite sure what I did a few hours ago.. I wouldn't put it past me to post it on the site and completely forget about it

well, i actually thought about sending a pm to you, because i didn't want to make it bigger either, but i started reading the post here and i got so mad about the way things are going that i just started writing. i figured you must be already battling dozens of mails from all over about this subject and i just posted my message.
i hope you manage to get some sleep though.

Maybe I understand you wrong but why can't we talk about it here? What's wrong with the posts?

I think someone will come up with an official story if there is wrong information spread, so they could correct it. But when...
About the privacy, okay... he can have his privacy, but at a certain level. We're talking about a pro athlete here. This injury has an influence on his job, the job from where we all know him. So the least they could do is give a little bit of info... This can come off a bit harsh, I know we're not only caring about him because we love to see him play tennis. It goes further than that. But it's not like we ask for what he did in the weekend, or what friends he has.
