I was hoping he would play Nottingham challenger next week but there is no entry list or draw yet...

Wish I could make it down to London but it's just not possible with work commitments.

Seems like only yesterday I was watching Wimbledon too.. time flies.

Re: Dust your shoulders off! Grass season 2012 Thread

I've read somewhere on-line that at 2-0 5-1 40-0 Ernest's cell phone rang and he ran to answer it :-D and said 'well, i don't like dissapointments either Mr. Black' he got back to the base line,furious and started to play really well, something like Rome SF 2010 I suppose... too bad he didn't make it all the way I think it would have boosted his confidence a lot...

What? That doesn't make sense considering they are not allowed to have their cell phones on while on court! He would never be able to answer it! Don't know where you read that, but that doesn't seem logical!To stop a match to answer a phone call? Yeah..

Re: Dust your shoulders off! Grass season 2012 Thread

I don't know who that person is but they have a VERY active imagination! One of my best friends was at the match and she confirmed that was nonsense! No player would ever be allowed to stop the point and answer the phone. I'd suggest you stay off of that site! I wouldn't be able to trust a single word after reading that! It's more fan fiction than journalism!

Re: Dust your shoulders off! Grass season 2012 Thread

I agree :-D , but it would be good movie scenario though :-D
He still hasn't confirmed Bresnik as his new coach, any words on that?

They are still working together and it seems to be going well, however, I don't think he has officially confirmed it yet! They've only been working together for a couple of weeks. They started about a week before Roland Garros. Hopefully we will get a confirmation soon enough!

Re: Dust your shoulders off! Grass season 2012 Thread

I asked MariaV to translate that Estonian article for us, she said she'd do it tomorrow

Also, I saw Ernests on the Umag entry list.

한국어 너무 좋아요

Thanks for the translation in advance.
According to google translator, Ernests likes Bresnik but the problem is Bresnik might not be able to travel with him frequently.

I don't know if Rosengren is still with Soderling, he could be a good choice for Ernests or Norman, cause it seems to me Soderling had similar problems like Ernests,hard hitter but huge lack of consistency

Michal Novotny has been his physical trainer for the past three years! (Since 2010) Novotny use to be a physical trainer for the ATP!
