Ernests Gulbis and Cedric Mourier: The Great, and Somehow Suggestive, Water Debate

Ernests Gulbis is well known for his humorous, sometimes snarky interviews, but he also wins points for his banter with umpires. At the Paris Masters this week, Ernie’s amusing exchange with ump Cedric Mourier took an interesting turn. At 6-5 in the first set against Fernando Verdasco, Ernie was apparently looking for some room temperature water instead of the cold stuff.
