Interview from Wednesday. Sorry for my English. :p

The guessing ended, Gulbis was there in interview of before draw ceremony. The 23 years old world star has almost two and half million dollar from tennis so far so he could do that he arrived to Nyíregyháza with one and half day delay.

Gulbis: That's nothing particular, I needed to spend few days at home to resting the fatigue of year's first quarter. - said Gulbis on Wednesday while he used two phones under the desk when he didn't speak. - The most important thing is that I'm preparing with my mates, we do everything for the win on weekend.

Gulbis is presently 80th in the word, he is far the best ranked player of weekend's tie. Do Latvia build for his two wins?

Girts Dzelde: Of course, we are talking about our best player who is much better than Hungarians on paper. We don't know too lot about Hungarians but we followed their tie against Ireland and I believe we win our first meeting at DC. Anyway he had part of great welcome, we have some problem with quality of courts but we can't do anything with it.

The best Latvian was 21th on ranking in last years's Februar and in 2010 he beaten the Swiss Roger Federer. They celebrate him as a national hero?

Gulbis: I don't remember, it was so long time ago. I don't like to talk about past, better to look forward. - He looked up from his phones - Of course my goal is the top 20 on ranking, it's easy to reach with few excellent result of tournaments. Now clay season is coming what I really like. The top 10 would be a big step so I want to reach my previous ranking.

They talk about matches, it seems Gulbis will play against Fucsovics on Friday and Juska against Kellner.

:ras: To be honest I didn't see him since a while, I don't have info about his size. :p

I think we seriously need to investigate into that mysterious she-hand apparition. Whose hand could it be? Did he bring his mommy with him, or is it someone else? Latvian speaking friends, help us out! :p

I understood that some members of Martins Podzus family arrived to the tie: his brother Janis (who is also a tennis player) and his father. And I think I saw Andis' father in that video as well. No signs of Gulbis family so far :shrug:

are you sure it was she-hand and not he-hand? :lol: I had again some problems when watching a video from sc.com, so I didn't managed to notice any details :p
