Ernests Gulbis used to be the only tennis Latvian star for the past few years, now he will share that with 20-year-old Jelena Ostapenko.
During a recent press conference, the interviewer commented that Gulbis was Ostapenko’s idol when coming up.
I am extremely happy
“It’s unbelievable. This is really unbelievable. I said it yesterday in a smaller press conference. It was just a couple of people. But I told my thoughts already.
I am extremely happy for her and for Latvia, that we have such a great player.”
Nice to hear that.
