Latvian professional tennis player Ernests Gulbis has admitted to losing $557,000 while playing blackjack in a casino after he exited the French Open recently.

Gulbis, who has won more than $1.5 million since the start of this year told Gazzetta dello Sport that he and a friend went to a Latvian casino after he lost his Semifinal match against Novak Djokovic, where he promptly lost all of the $557,000 prize money that he accrued during the tournament.

โ€œAfter losing to Djokovic, I returned to Latvia with my cousin and I went to the Casino,โ€ Gulbis said. โ€œI bet all prize money won in Paris and I lost it.โ€

Hereโ€™s hoping that the 25 year old tennis pro has a better run of luck the next time he uses his tournament winnings to fuel another round of high stakes blackjackโ€ฆ or that he uses one of the card counting systems included on our website!
