Ernie Pays For It … And Pays For It

Posted by gauloises1 on October 20, 2009

So according to Joachim Johansson’s blog, the ATP player fined for solicitation was … drumroll … Ernests Gulbis.

guess who


*artist’s rendition of the discovery process

“Monaco fick sent igår kväll reda på att han blivit anklagad i argentinsk press för att han var den skyldige spelaren som köpt sex under helgen trots att Gulbis redan erkänt.”

“Monaco found out last night that he was accused in the Argentine press of being the player who bought sex during the weekend, even though Gulbis has already confessed. He will probably have a difficult time before the match on Wednesday. I’ll try to take advantage of it early in the match …”


Doesn’t seem to be any official confirmation as yet. I’ve heard that the other player is Deivids Juksa, a buddy of Ernie’s (thanks Bismarck for that info).

Just out of interest, does the ATP/ITF/PTBs have any power to impose sanctions after an incident like this? I mean, I get he probably wasn’t paying for sex during an actual match, but if you can be put under investigation for screaming at a line judge, what about breaking the, you know, law? Just a thought.

UPDATE: Pim-Pim seems to have incompetently edited his blog to remove the reference. Yeah, you see that bag, Joachim? It doesn’t have a cat in it.

    I find it quite amusing, Riga in Latvia is Swedish johns favorite destination, guess Ernie thought it was time to even out the trade balance.
