Well I noticed that today. But as he was doing that more the crowd was taking it as a challenge and "provoking" him more. Anyway I think that is because we are not used to such big events.

Re: The Latvia vs Egypt Davis Cup thread

Thank you for the pictures! (I sent you a friend request btw. Don't know if you are interested in friend-ing random Ernests fans ) It's a shame the crowd was picking on Ernests a bit but then again it's Davis Cup and Latvia was winning

Am I the only one who hardly recognize Ernests because of haircut?
You are not the only one who had trouble recognizing him I have the same problem
Putting names on the board is pretty funny
Thanks for the pictures Abollo and you Nadie for this video

It's better to watch it in 1080p for HD

Re: The Latvia vs Egypt Davis Cup thread

Great pictures&vid! Good to see that Michal Novotny's there, taking care of the Latvian team. Were Ernests's warm grey undies his idea?
And about being used to such events. Unfortunately, 'wars of nerves' between a player and the audience are not a rare thing. People strolling during the match? Ernests could treat it like a warm-up before the US tournaments (spectators wise)
Anyway, I think it's big that Egypt faced the challenge and organized this tie. It surely wasn't easy for a country that's going through a lot lately.

Re: The Latvia vs Egypt Davis Cup thread

Apparently Ernests has been suffering from food poisoning?

Re: The Latvia vs Egypt Davis Cup thread

Yes, he did get a bit of food poisoning but it didn't seem to effect him too much with his match. Poor thing! I've been meaning to ask, I saw footage of Novotny but wondered if anyone else from Team Gulbis is in Egypt or just him?

Re: The Latvia vs Egypt Davis Cup thread

Michal (his trainer) was sitting with the DC team. I can see him in a few of your pictures. I'm glad you got a picture with Ernests! He is the most fan friendly player I've ever met!

I didn't expected him to be so friendly after yesterday, but apparently I was wrong
