Biography

Ernests Gulbis' grandmother introduced the Latvian to tennis at the age of five and he comes from a family with links in business, education, law, basketball and golf. Gulbis is known for his ability to serve big, move forward and attack the net. In Grand Slam play, Gulbis enjoyed his best run at a Grand Slam, reaching the semi-finals of the 2014 French Open before falling to Novak Djokovic. His previous best result was a quarter-final run, also at Roland Garros, in 2008.
