Re: Good luck in Nice Ernests!! - q/final vs Berdych - Always Supporting You!!

Berdych is a tough competitor so I knew this was going to be a difficult match! I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm really happy with how Ernests played this tournament! Like he said, he hasn't played for a long time and didn't have much confidence at the start of the tournament. Two of his matches were three sets which is good for him going into a Grand Slam and I think he has gained confidence going into the French! I can only hope now he can get a decent draw & is able to win a few matches.

Re: Good luck in Nice Ernests!! - q/final vs Berdych - Always Supporting You!!

Ernests,that 2nd set!

Just wish he wouldn't give so many players a 3-0 start in so many matches,especially against a classy player like Tomas. Anyhow,Ernests made good use of the wildcard so kindly given to him.

Wishing him all the best for RG.

Re: Good luck in Nice Ernests!! - q/final vs Berdych - Always Supporting You!!

just saw last 4 games (damn lectures!!) and even if I'm sad for him, I'm so happy for all his tournament!! I'm sure now he knows he can compete again with top players and fight until the end!!!! Now just finger cross for the tomorrow draw...I don't want him to play Djokovic on first round

bye bye

What a shame he lost but he must be pleased with himself getting to the quarters anyway

Really hope he manages to get a good run at Roland Garros

Re: Good luck in Nice Ernests!! - q/final vs Berdych - Always Supporting You!!

I saw the match. He was nervous in the 1st set and he seemed to struggle with his first serve. Last year, he beat Berdych in Memphis and his serves were fantastic. He fought through the match, he broke once but was broken right back.
I think he is on a good spirit and just wish he doesn't hit a high seeded player in his 1st round, because he won't play any match until Queen.
We are only in half season so he could progress in months coming.
I am just happy to see him on court.

I'll be there for the first round, so I'm very glad it most likely won't be a show court match

Well he lost too much R1 match in GSs, I'm very happy if he wins one and Kavcic is good opponent!

Never ever give up
