That was an ace & he didn't challenge. At least he is now on the scoreboard! Ugh, and my stream has it say "Thomaz Djokovic" and it's annoying.

Re: Indian Wells - BNP Paribas Open - 2011

You know what worries me during a match. Whenever Ernests is loosing and he doesn't show emotion, it's never a good sign over the level of fight he will show during the match. Everyone always gets on him for breaking a racket or yelling at himself but in a way that sometimes helps push himself at least a little. Right now there is no emotion what so ever, there is just...nothing.

I love this man so much but this is the worst performance from him so far this year. Hopefully he will recover mentally & just put this match past him quickly.

Re: Indian Wells - BNP Paribas Open - 2011

Its my sincere wish that this is as bad as he will EVER play.

I sometimes wonder if he's now working too hard physically and not hard enough technically. Just a thought

And I'll repeat...Ernests please get a sports psychologist to help you with your breathing in matches,to learn to relax,focus.

Its a shame

I hope that the only way is up now,at least in terms of quality of play,if not results.

Its hard to take,but we're together as one. Ernests

Re: Indian Wells - BNP Paribas Open - 2011

He did not show any emotion at all indeed. But I really can't remember seeing him play this badly... On to the next, and waiting for a better form once again

For him, and for my fan-colleagues

Re: Indian Wells - BNP Paribas Open - 2011

Yes he just didnt seem to have any spark at all. I wonder how it would have gone if he had broken in the first game....
I hope he can pick himself up after this and look towards the next tournament!!

Re: Indian Wells - BNP Paribas Open - 2011

This is not the only match he played badly this year. He's played only 12 matches this year and there are already many matches that he barely won a game in the set...
If he keeps playing like this, I'm afraid he will drop out of Top 75 very soon.

Come on Ernests! Isn't your goal for 2011 is breaking it through Top 10?

Re: Indian Wells - BNP Paribas Open - 2011

When Ernests won a match scheduled first in the morning?
We are all astonished by this unreal result and it hurts really.
Not getting the break in 1st game just haunted him, it shouldn't do.

I didn't expect him to win, but as everybody, at least have a good competition.
Wonder how Cahill will help him to review this before Miami.
Draw was harsh on him and we couldn't see his best fight sunday.
It is in those occasions that I fear him retiring.

We love him whatever, does he even know?

Miami here he comes...

Re: Indian Wells - BNP Paribas Open - 2011

Well, this must have been a really quick execution, cause when I left the office the match had not started yet and now I see this. I really wanted to see the match but now I think maybe it's better this way.

As Ellen said, on to the next one. Sending good vibes to all of you who need some. Group hug, people, we need one

I'm still for "Ernie all the way" and I'm waiting for better times BUT no smooch for Ernests tonight, sorry

Gulbis. Everything changes.
Ascending endlessly. Mr. Frusciante You once saved me....

I am very happy to be alive. There is much fun to be had. Music, movies, books, paintings, drawings... I hope you have these things where you are. If you have them, what does the real world matter anyway? JF - Letter for Children Of The Future

Alive with music, haunting my soul Love you more.

we are the same ♥
