Ernie was playing well by his standards - bashing everything as usual. He didn't chuck any racquet (definitely a plus) but he wasn't in God-like mode either. Encouraging stuff, but nothing to trumpet about.
Thanks Z! I was waiting for your comment about his match. You can never tell how he actually played by articles and such... because no journalist probably knows him so well to be able to give a really objective opinion.
Anyway encouraging, indeed as you said. But it doesnt mean anything, given our swinging Erno.
Were you really going back and forth between this match and Mannarino's one? Im sorry he lost...
