I don't know about you but seeing them both on the scoreboard at the same time is very exciting to me! They are both starting off well! Sarauj!

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

Against Andis, it seems that Ernests knew he would be LL, I saw him play well but his 12 DF were probably made on purpose to let Andis reaches the main draw.
He plays on court 1 soon and there is a stream which is quite surprising for a challenger. Cross fingers

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

So I missed Ernests' match today. I set my alarm at 8:45am and looking at the time duration of his match, I had set that up perfectly. Well I fell back asleep, woke up an hour later, turned on the scoreboard and he had just won. I was so bummed I missed it! I know the score but if anyone wants to write what happened with the match I'd appreciate it!

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

He played with conviction, was patient in rallies, just 3 DF and not too many errors in his shots.
Court 1 had not a single seat for spectator and only 2 line judges. That's low profile challenger indeed.
He earned a big 6 points with the win

Not scheduled for tomorrow though. So next match is Thursday.

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100



I'm not comfortable with the nature of that match, the 'strategic tank' and knowing he was LL Juska is a friend and fellow Latvian but still...hmmmm...it's not that professional and if this match had been played at the very highest level of tournaments...other issues could have happened.

Other than obviously cutting down the double faults,his level is still way off the good stuff I saw first hand in Latvia. The laughter he displayed when he said he was pissed at his ranking(so soon after DC) is kind of really weird given his level now. His level is more like the beginning of the year.

Seems to me the novelty of Bresnik already wore off.

I doubt whether he can get to top 100,if this level continues.
