Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

Yes, Christine is right. To my surprise Ernests showed up at the practice courts today. He practiced for about an hour & a half. It seems his shoulder has started to bother him again. Don't know how much. He was laughing and having fun in practice. He was beating Davydenko pretty good! Shame it wasn't a real match, but Ernests does say he beats everyone in practice. He told me he is leaving tomorrow. Oh, and Karlis was also with him for the practice.

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

Why in the world are we even mentioning the final? They haven't even played round one yet! Granted the field isn't very strong but we can't always go by that!

Is there livestream for the event? I'm still in Cincinnati so I can't follow the match. I wondered if he is showing signs of discomfort in his shoulder. His shoulder looked fine in his match but he was fussing with it a bit two days later.

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

More to the point - why is there so much bloody misery here? There are far more things in life to be miserable about!! If people haven't got anything positive or meaningful to say then it would be better not to post. This is why I barely come here any more. It is time to shut the fuck up,or get out if you cant cheer. What is wrong with you people? Do you have a reason to criticise someone you supposedly support? Where Ernests plays,how often,and how he plays is HIS business!!

It is hard to post with such a generally miserable atmosphere hence the reason(besides personal family problems) why I haven't been here for a while.

Nice turnaround here from Ernests so far today He often gets off to a slow start no matter how he feels physically.

Remember our guy is playing with chronic shoulder pain,he is scheduling carefully for that reason. People here who expect him to play every week with an injury are just

Now ffs sake cheer!

Btw thanks so much for updates Courtney Have enjoyed them very much Thanks for bringing some joy to me.

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

4-1 up in 2nd set now,and the ace count is rising nicely,as is his 1st serve percentage! Keep going Ernests!

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

GSM to Ernests in 1st rd qualifying 6-4 6-3! He struck 11 aces in the end,and his serving percentage ended up in mid 60s.

Lets see who he faces in next round later today. I hope he gets some more good treatment for his shoulder. He's the 1st winner of the qualifying matched today,and gets a bit more rest than the others. Hopefully that will benefit him somewhat

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

I haven't noticed too much misery here, people are simply not posting. Anyway, I'm glad he got the win and hopefully he can get some more. If he can qualify (and that's a big if in my mind) he will have the advantage of being used to the courts and the atmosphere.

Not you in particular,but in general there is an increasing number of negative people here. I have especially noticed several people who moan and are critical every time they post. These people know who they are.

All I was saying was that people who want Ernests to play every week with an injured shoulder are not being fair,and are a bit stupid. None of us would play with an injury and yet there are people here who want him to anyway. It concerns me when people here are unhappy because Ernests doesn't play every week and ask why. It's a bit

We ALL need to realise Ernests is playing through pain at the moment,but is making the best of the situation. He will know how his shoulder is affecting him. Whilst he has physical problems,we should encourage him,stay positive but be aware he might not play his best because of the injury.

Most of all there is no need for negative posts,given his situation. Ernests will do what he wants and not ONE of us can control that,so lets accept that.

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

I'm sorry Di but I don't think you (or anyone else except the forum moderators) have the right to tell us how we ALL need to post here. As long as people stay respectful they're allowed (per forum rules) to express their concern or pessimism. We should encourage Ernests, yes, of course, but I'm sure he doesn't read this forum so it doesn't matter to him what we write here. We just discuss him and his games here, and if his results are less than stellar then the discussions will reflect that. There's nothing wrong with that. I'm sure better times will come again.

P.S. You seem very sure he's playing through pain at the moment. I don't know, I think he wouldn't do that, he would take some time off and let it heal properly if it was something serious.

I just stated facts! I was NOT telling everyone how to post. But life is too short to be pessimistic for no reason. FFS I know he doesn't read this Forum. What a stupid thing to say!!!

Ernests will be playing through some pain,shoulder injuries are the most painful things. Of course his pain varies,and obviously his shoulder benefits from rest.

The most annoying thing I was pointing out though was how much people here seem to complain when he doesn't play. Or expect him to win when carrying an injury.

PS I know who the miserable people are who spoil it for the rest. For you to say we have discussions here Best laugh I've had today. We used to. I'm not responsible for the ones who don't say something positive or run away when he loses(or even from the moment he drops serve) If people are gonna attempt a live score at least try and see it to the end
