Ernests Gulbis blasted Canadian fans, calling them "stupid" and saying they conspired against him Friday in his quarter-final loss to crowd favourite Milos Raonic.
"They're used to hockey here, it's okay," Gulbis said of the jeers he received through his 7-6 (7/3), 4-6, 6-4 loss at the ATP Tour Rogers Cup. "But I don't understand why you need to clap for a double fault. There can be emotions, but I think it's stupid.
"I can't call a thousand people stupid. But it's something that I don't understand. That's why all the Canadian players, they play always very well in Canada."
