Although he fell to the bottom of the rankings, Ernest Gulbis (375e world) has not changed.
After beating Frenchman Matteo Martineau (380e) during qualifying for the Trieste Challenger in Italy on Monday, the 33-year-old Latvian decided to clash with his opponent at the time of the handshake at the net.
“Learn to play tennis man. I played like shit and still beat you”dropped the former number 10 in the ATP rankings, winner of his match 6-3, 6-4, in 1h21.
A total lack of fair play that is difficult to forgive even if Gulbis has always been known for his strong character.
Class and humility are apparently foreign notions to Ernest Gulbis.
