yeah I agree about that. the only thing is that it could have helped him increase his confidence by (hopefully) going further than second round

Re: Ernests' news thread!

Oh well, not meant to be. Not such a big loss of opportunity (except for Cath and Ellen to see him play live ). Seemed like it was an afterthought on Ernie's part to enter it to begin with, anyway. Well, he'll be better rested for Zagreb.

What would it change if he had a girlfriend? We like to know things about his life but not THAT private We know him from tennis, we like him because he plays tennis...and the rest is actually none of our bussines. So I can't give you an answer, and I'm afraid no one can. I'm sorry

Re: Ernests' news thread!

I'd just say that article puts together a lot of stuff and just tries (neither so good) to give it a decent shape and sense. I dont know if he is on antibiotics and all but, I'd say, he seemed healthy in Zagreb.

Re: Ernests' news thread!

here's an article about the match:

"I guess I started off pretty well," said Roddick. "But I thought he started serving really well in the second set."

Roddick had his hands full with the Latvian, who didn't seem flustered by the hard-serving defending champion. Roddick is trying to win the tournament for a record fourth time.

Roddick used serves clocked at 150, 147, and 142 mph to easily win the first set. But Gulbis almost turned the tables on Roddick in the second set, matching him point for point until the losing the tiebreaker.

Although Gulbis had six double faults, he constantly flustered Roddick with his strong serves and return game. At one point after being aced, Roddick tossed his racket to the side in disbelief.

Roddick's unforced errors gave Gulbis the opportunity he needed to challenge.

It was a little frustrating to not be able to get into a rhythm at all," said Roddick. "And then he started hitting first serves for second serves. If he's making it there isn't much I can do. A lot of the time he plays pretty high-risk so you are kind of at his mercy."

I thought it was kind of interesting to see things from Andy's perspective

Re: Ernests' news thread!

At his mercy But it's true, high-risk all the time... It can either go good or awful. But they should really start to interview the loser all the time too I need a new interview to read or watch.

Re: Ernests' news thread!

He just hates interviews Can you blame him for losing then? People always laugh with him during an interview but he never knows why

lol Di, to be honest - I didn't really know why you posted it That's probably why I didn't react

Re: Ernests' news thread!

I'll also post an article, Di It's useless and google-translated but it's better than nothing. http://translate.google.be/translate...hl=nl&ie=UTF-8

Those breikbumbas are still killing me And "This pair is a favorite of convincing Del Potra, who posted in this tournament with a 2 number, but whether he will be directly Swan opponent, only to hear tonight." I love that google translator.
