Thanks for the list Ginevra, you have been an Ernests fan long enough to know...you can't always trust everything Ernests says in interviews! Things change with him often ;)

Hi Guys, Ernie is here in Bangkok ZOMG! :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:

He arrived on Friday morning without any news or fangirl greeting him at the airport. The tournament told us that his flight was on Sunday. Good job confusing us of your arrival time, Ernie.

Today he went to a promo job at Adidas store with Gilles Simon. Since the promo job was not advertised, there were only a couple of journalists, photographers and bunch of Adidas staff. I heard about this gig from a journalist I know awhile ago (Big Thanks!). So I went with 2 friends, one is huge Ernie's fan the other just came along. There were no other fan there just onlookers curious of what's going on...

Ernie and Michael, his trainer, arrived 15 min. before the starting time, so we took some pics with him, had him sign stuff. Then he went outside the store waiting for Gilles at a coffee-shop.

Gilles arrived on time but he spent sometime eating, chatting with the rest of the group. Ernie seemed to be in good spirit today (Probably having a good time last nite ;) )

They had a brief interview in the store. While they were sitting on plastic stools, the kind you have in a bar, everybody was fine but while Ernie sitting down, the stool broke :haha: :haha: :haha: I tried to capture the pic of the stool but the staff put it away too quickly... He was amused by the accident and did the superman pose to show us how strong he is :hearts:

The interviewer (a local sport journalist) did not know him at all. I heard him said (after seeing pic of Ernie in the store "Oh, this is how Gulbis looks like", then he just read from scripts. So there's nothing new, like "How do you find motivation coming from a wealthy family?" "Is this your first time here?" :eek: "What do you like about Thailand?"

Ernie was patient with those silly questions and answered them well but just ordinary politically correct stuff, like he finds girls here are pretty and he likes Thai food. (Well, after the job was done, he went to a Japanese restaurant :devil: you little liar!).

What I found interesting was that after the interview, signing some Adidas stuff which will be posted for bidding later, Gilles continued with one-on-one interview (very hard-working!) while Ernie continued shopping in the store :p Tough life, huh. Gilles didn't seem to be interested in shopping.

Ernie took a lot of stuff from the store T-Shirt, shoes, etc... altogether 3 bags. And then their day's job is done. Gilles returned to the hotel; Ernie and Michael continue shopping around there. My friends and I stopped following them after we left the store coz it's been creepy already :haha: We took pictures with him, with him and Gilles, with him and Michael, etc... We kinda have them for ourselves + some journalists.

It's been a blast. Oh, need I say more that a friend who just tagged along now likes Ernie already. Power of the cuteness overload.


Will post pics in photo thread immediately!

You're welcome guys. Ernests handled the (boring) media well this time. For the last couple of years, he didn't have a good reputation here among the local media as he was grumpy and avoiding silly questions (like "How do you feel about the match?" Ernie "How do I feel, have you watched it?").

Journalists take those past actions of Ernests as disrespect and wrote bad things about him.

Anyway, he's doing well among tennis fan / non-tennis fan. His fanbase is growing with limited media help. For example, last year, a woman working in a coffee-shop at the tournament asked me who was that red-head guy, she liked him breaking racquet on-court ;) and arguing with the umpire :devil:

I'm gonna be there again. Can't have enough of Ernie :devil: :devil: :devil:
Facebook: " Ernests Gulbis will give autograph to fans around 15:00 tomorrow at PTT Booth and stops by Eazy FM for a little talk. Don't miss!!"


Can you tell him that you know many "old" fans that wake up in middle of the night to see him play on internet, even in small tourneys since many years, either win or lose...he must know that.))) ENJOY!

On Bet365 homepage they have Andreev - Young match, but not Gulbis. I also read somewhere they will only start live stream from evening session tomorrow. Hopefully I´m wrong..
