They will air it again tomorrow around 1 Latvian time. It's a cute special with all of the guys. Some parts we have already seen but then they show different parts of his pressers and they are all full of laughter from Ernests & the journalists.

Also, if this is the link to the radio station he will be on..(not sure which link is the right one)It's really great to listen to. They have more music at night and most of it is in English.

Hmm, I'll try to remember... Truthfully I don't watch TV that much, I prefer internet livestreams or youtube

Re: Ernests' Photos and Videos Part 2

I can't say I enjoyed that interview very much. I think I finally figured out why that is - it's because he says "Nu kā..." very often. It's an expression that means "Did you seriously just ask me that? How can you not know it already???" It seems condescending to the interviewer and it makes it seem like Ernests is not enjoying giving the interview because he has to answer stupid/obvious questions all the time. It's in his tone too. I don't know, maybe it's just me

He repeated some things I've already seen in other interviews - about not asking a girl what her profession is when he meets one, about not going into other people's offisses and disturbing them. About the Stockholm incident, he said he and a friend (Karlis perhaps?) had been going from one nightclub to another one and saw the two girls. They talked, then went to the hotel, then the police came. They (the police) didn't ask the girls anything, just told them to go. Then he and his friend were interrogated in separate rooms. Ernests was not cooperating, he didn't answer any questions because he was afraid their stories might be different. Then he was taken downstairs were more policemen were waiting and he was escorted to... wherever it was they held him. Ernests said that in the car on the way there, he told the policemen all he thought about Sweden, about their history with Latvia and something about their airport, he said he really let it all out.

On another subject, he has a 160GB iPod full with music. His dad converted all the CDs he had (Beatles, David Bowie, Led Zeppelin and other bands of that time period) and so he's got all their songs on his iPod. He likes listening to them before going to bed/falling asleep

At the end there, they were talking that he should make another visit to Radio SWH sometime later and the interviewer (who saw a tennis match for the first time on last weekend and was very impressed with all the rituals, the balls and the towel and everything ) suggested that maybe Ernests could come again when he's in the top 20 and Ernests said no, that's too soon, maybe when he's in top 5 He may have exaggerated there a bit but I certainly got the impression that he plans to go up in the rankings. He said he plans to play tennis until he's 29-30 years old, if healthy enough, of course.

Not Karlis, he was with David who traveled with him that year. Thanks for the translation. Anything else you remember him saying? Anything else about parting or women? Or his family? I know he said how his biggest goal is not to change (his personality). And I was told he dedicated his final song to all the women.

Re: Ernests' Photos and Videos Part 2

Oh, I remember lots of things but nothing very interesting, much of it we already know. He likes to read when he's in tournaments, he always reads in Russian. Apparently Latvian is not expressive enough for him He also swears in Russian He and the interviewer were having a good laugh about it, they were trying to think of good swear words in Latvian (because there aren't any). He said all the umpires know the Russian swear words but they don't harass Ernests much about it, he said he has normal/good relationships with most umpires. He said he thinks a player like him (who swears and breaks racquets) is more interesting to the spectators than "robotic" players. The interviewer mentioned Federer as an example of a player who does nothing wrong on court and Ernests agreed that he wouldn't be a very interesting player if he wasn't world number 1 (or 2) In fact they mocked Federer a bit and it was not very nice but it was all in good fun. Ernie said Davydenko is also like that, not interesting for spectators.

So thats what they were laughing on about. Anything else? My friend Simona said she would translate everything in full if she can get her hands on the recording.

Re: Ernests' Photos and Videos Part 2

His mother gave him a guitar for his 20th birthday and he'd like to learn to play it. He took the guitar on one of his tours with him and he tried to learn a bit (he had a computer program for that) but it was too much hassle to take the guitar with him all the time so... that's on hold for now. When the interviewer suggested he could play and sing for a girl Ernie said he would play and let the girl sing because he doesn't have the voice He knows a lot of Russian music, he likes to go to concerts when he can, he also likes Blues. He went to a concert in Washington this year, I forgot the artist.

What else did he say... Oh yeah, about how it feels like to be on court when you're playing. He said it's like you're the only person in the world, you're all alone. That's why he needs eye contact with his coach or his father so much during matches, it makes him feel less alone. He said people at the match, whether they support him or are against him, it doesn't matter much to him but if there's trouble in his box then that takes away his concentration. The interviewer asked whether the coach tells him anything during the match and Ernests said that he doesn't have to, they know each other so well that simply eye contact or a nod is enough.

Re: Ernests' Photos and Videos Part 2

I understood that bit about the guitar and it made me fall in love with him even more! So hot! I'd love if he played for me. I can't sing so I'd just sway along. I love how the interviewer keeps wanting him with a girl cause he also said Ernests needed a women and of course Ernests disagreed.

Re: Ernests' Photos and Videos Part 2

Gulbis might be right about Federer. People like Champions. They also like players who play great tennis. But first of all, they like the guys who win. They don't care much about players who have problems to win, because it is too frustrating. Emotions, combined with success is the best.

Maybe he reads the books in russian, because they are not translated in his own language?

And he is listening to his dads music. Nothing wrong with that, because it is still the best music.

Gulbis sounds often edgy. Sometimes even arrogant, because he has not much patience. It is the same with him on court.

Guitar is hard to learn. Much harder than piano. But it was a nice idea by his mom. It might helped him to focus. But of course a tennis player has already too much to carry.

Re: Ernests' Photos and Videos Part 2

Im a musician myself and I play the guitar as well, but just for hobby wise of course, and the fact that he is trying to learn how to play makes me looove him even more! ;D And how sweet is this: "When the interviewer suggested he could play and sing for a girl Ernie said he would play and let the girl sing because he doesn't have the voice" I literally melted <333 And guitar isn't hard at all, I self taught myself, but I guess it just depends on the person.
