I'm with another Ernie's interview to NTV+ http://ntvplus.ru/sport-news?news_id=12901

Ernests Gulbis: `Igor struggled right to the end, that's why he won `
-It was your first five sets match in GS, wasn't it? I guess you gained great experience today.
The experience was great indeed, and well done Igor. I was suprised how he managed to get concentrated. I've already made a break, and many other players would probably be playing with some thoughts of bad in the mind. But Igor got focused, he struggled right to the end and that's why he won.

-You know Igor told us the same about you. Many others would already lose courage after the first two sets and he was amazed, how you got focused and how you began to play.
It is even easier to play when you have already lost first and second sets. You think you have nothing to lose. The hardest thing for me is always how to play first set, till I don't begin to realize what happens on court. Of course I didn't play my best tennis today, the wind was blowing hard, i think it bothered us both. Anyway, I was able to play third and fourth set with more ease than first two sets. And in fifth set we both played better than in previous sets. We played long rallies but I was little less fit than Igor.

-Did you get cramps?

It began in the last set but it didn't influence much on the play. It affected indeed in the last game, when it was 40-0 on my serve, I tried to take longer pauses before playing next point because I got cramps in my legs. Igor chose the right tactics against me, he played to my backhand and well ran to my forehand`s size. He hit a great forehand. I couldn`t deal with it because my backhand is a bit flat. I was about to put Igor under pressure but I didn’t do that, and Igor got much of what he wanted to do. I began to play a bit more aggressive in 3th and 4th sets, I began to play shots down the line and that`s why something changed.

-It looked like in first two sets your reaction to Igor serve was not so good.
He had better serve in the first and the second sets, but during the third set he teared stomach muscle and wasn't able to serve well, and it became easier for me to return. During the first and second sets I wasn’t 100% in the game, some times the beginning matches come out to be great and some times it is like it was today.

No rumours, she was seen at his practice session and his match. No one said they are together... they should take care of that on their own anyway.

Ernests probably will play Heilbronn challenger next week at least local media names him as potential WC

Quote:
Kandidaten für die Freikarte gibt es viele, beispielsweise Rainer Schüttler (aktuell die Nummer 33 der Welt) und Ernests Gulbis (52). Der 20-Jährige aus Riga hatte in Talheim vor zwei Jahren im Halbfinale gestanden. Und Uli Eimüllner hat da noch eine E-Mail-Anfrage von Stefan Edberg. Die lebende schwedische Tennislegende habe einen sehr aussichtsreichen jungen Landsmann angepriesen

Do you know how close that is to us, Cath?

I'm not trying to unfluence you but Olivier Rochus will play his first match of the season there
