This Ernie is good for a few quotes. At least he admits it, unlike Philippoussis.
"I'll go on court, play my best and whatever happens is okay. If I lose 6-2, 6-1 I'll just go on.
"There's no need to think about it, thinking about it won't help you. You have to throw away thoughts about it and you'll be okay."
That sort of attitude is typical of the Latvian who admitted that he is no fan of training and has no intention of forging the type of long and dominant career of his next opponent.
"I don't like practising or spending a lot of hours on court, that's just not me," he added.
"I just want to win a Grand Slam, only one and I'll finish my career."
