Hi! Do you know if Gulbis has another sponsor and management? Or, I think he doesn't care about that. What I know is that he has a contract with Adidas since his 15 years old. But he never appeaars on commercials or photoshoots or campaigns. Do you know about anything? Thanks!

Hi, I haven’t heard about important sponsors except Adidas and Wilson. And yes, seems that he doesn’ t care much (think about absence of an twitter account or official page - it is a rare case for a Top 20 player).

Heyy, how are you?? I’m Mah from Brazil and a I love Ernests Gulbis and I loved this tumblr! Just amazing.

So, I was surfing on the internet just researching about Marat Safin when I find a video commercial for Adidas. And guess what??? Gulbis was there with Safin and Bob and Mike Bryan. Unfortunately he does not have much appears, but you can see his baby face and lovely person. It’s a great commercial. I hope you like it! Hopefully our Ernests Gulbis appear in more videos from Adidas! Kisesss :)

Small bits (which I find interesting):

  • E. was asked about Niks Matvejevs and he said that they were very close friends
  • E. said that he doesn’t have many real friends, perhaps “countable on one hand”
  • It was mentioned that Ernests participated in the video shoot for Riga (European Cultural Capital) 2014 project (result this summer/autumn)
  • E. was asked about friends on tour. He mentioned Dolgopolov, other Ukrainians and Russians, also Raonic
  • Raonic asked him to play doubles for practice, so they teamed up, E. also plans to play doubles with Thiem, maybe later this year
  • While working with Bresnik he has missed only one practice
  • Nice words about Thiem; Interviewer asked if T. nickname is Domino, because he heard that E. calls him so during their practice. E. said that he was just joking around
  • He didn’t give a clear answer about his participation in DC tie against Austria
  • He doesn’t shave during a tournament - “it’s like play-off”.
  • (Not from this article but also interesting: girls in E. box during RG were Bresnik’s daughter with friend, Aljona Ostapenko (junior tennis player from Latvia) and also three fans whom he met there and invited just for fun) 
Also interview (from RG) inside. I’ll try to get this magazine

My favourite quote so far, it sums up the lost years and the resurgence.
