Yeah, it's weird… Maybe someone uses a software that helps to change the adress IP all the time… So, he can vote "300" times in the same day

Re: Ernests' news thread!

Hmmm, I don't know. Like Di said, either they subtracted votes from outside of Latvia or they subtracted votes made by the same person through illicit means. I'm not going to send them an e-mail, it's not worth it. The important thing is that Ernests will participate in the telephone voting

Re: Ernests' news thread!

The most scary sentence to me is "He could be the No. 1 player in the world in a matter of two or three years. He could also be out of the Top 100 by the summer of 2009. (Neither would be surprising. It all depends on what is going on inside his head.)"
But still I would be surprised if he was out of the top 100 by next summer. From my point of view, this CANT be possible. I mean, he's not THAT erratic!

Anyway, I liked "the sky is the limit". A bit hyperbolic, but nice...

Re: Ernests' news thread!

thanks! I love the article too.
this part is the scariest to me: "2009 is an absolutely huge year for the 20-year-old. Another 10 months with Gulbis stuck in neutral could cripple his confidence and make the concerns over whether or not he will actually live up to all the hype louder than they already are." I guess 2009 will be crucial in any way...

oh and can I add something: I miss him (I know I said I don't have time to miss him, but reading an article like this has a bad effect)

Re: Ernests' news thread!

Thanks for the post, Camilla! Ricky Dimon is a huge fan of Ernie. I read his blog after he saw Ernie's USO match against Robredo. Totally bowled over. (Weren't we all?) Like any huge fan, he has very high expectations of Ernie and gets very disappointed with the bad results. So he makes some grim predictions to guard against disappointment IN CASE Ernie doesn't live up to expectations. On one hand he thinks "the sky is the limit" for Ernie and then on the other that he could be out of the top 100 within the year. C'mon, that's pretty wild. Ernie will have to be injured to lose his ranking that fast, or lose his mind (God forbid) I'll pray that neither of those will happen.....

Re: Ernests' news thread!

Yeah, the author of that article is a pretty big Ernie fan so you have to take what he writes with a grain of salt. He's the same Dominator133 that had joined this board for a while but then got banned several times, I'm not really sure what was the reason. See here one of his posts about Gulbis.

i read this article last night and i'm actually quite happy that we're still getting some erno write-ups even though the 2008 season is already over.i am quite nervous about the 2009 season though. but i would have to agree with you cath on this! this article also makes me miss ernests even more! law school is pretty taxing right now but i still find a lot of time to miss him..unfortunately..

Re: Ernests' news thread!

Ernests will play at Heineken Open international 1/12/2009. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news...ectid=10546357 I guess he will not play Kooyong then, because it is the same week

that's weird indeed it's hard to find out things about events like kooyong, but on their website, they still mention his name...
but thanks for the info

Re: Ernests' news thread!

mmm... *me scratching my head* I find this news very strange. Moreover I cant find his name on the Heineken Open website (maybe its too early?)... while, as Cath said, it is still present in Kooyong. Couldnt it be possible that the journalist got confused and wrote something not precise?
However, I hope he will go to Kooyong: Z got the tickets, and of course Kooyong will be a great event even without Ernie...but, well, will it be the same?
