Re: Ernests' news thread!

He is trying out different rackets? I hope if he is going to switch up rackets that he adjusts to it easier than Novak did. I'm excited to see what he is changing and what will happen early in the season!

Re: Ernests' news thread!

He is also staying in Miami over the Christmas period until the 29th when he is leaving for Doha!

If you didn't see in another post he is practicing with Wilson and a few different makes of Head (currently uses Head)

Re: Ernests' news thread!

It is good to see that Ernests is mentionned in many 2010 year end coverage;
Best improved player or memorable matches...

We wish us all a 2011 even more memorable without injury.
Another 10 days and he is back on court.

Hope he will do well in Doha and Sydney so he can keep his 24th ranking for the Aussie draw.

Re: Ernests' news thread!

New article with Ernests featuring new quotes! Gulbis knows he looks sexy with the messy hair & beard! He IS a real man!

Quote:
“But if I cut my hair and shave, I look 17 and then no women at the age of 26 will be interested in me,” he said. “I am not one of those who want 10,000 creams rubbed into my face or my hair. I am a real man.”

Re: Ernests' news thread!

Neil Herman, from the Times, caught an interview with Ernests!!!
He talked the truth, as usual. It is reassuring that even after his injury, his goals are still high and he is working to reach them.
As he mentionned earlier this year, he decided to use his talent to prove himself something and we could benefit from it.
Next year will be a competitive year and I wish Ernests will be part of it.
He can do it because he had bitten most of the top players up to now, except Nadal but he came so close in Rome.
As he says, regularity will be the key.

Re: Ernests' news thread!

Great article, thanks.
It sounds good that Ernests is looking forward to the new season, means he is really motivated.

I also can´t wait to Doha - only one week left

Re: Ernests' news thread!

Love his interviews - he needs to do more!

So we've only got eight years left of him then he's off to his country house!

Re: Ernests' news thread!

Ernests has arrived today in Doha, according to their website.
So his flight from Florida was ok.
Good to see him already on the spot.
Wish him a good ride in his first tourney.
