Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

I'm a med student...it seems this is troubleing him a lot... not sure if he was complaining about his often tonsilitis in 2011 in interview when he played memphis this year then it seemed to me like he was complaining about some gastrointestinal issues,don't konw anymore...but if that was about tonsils then he should think about operation,casue he can't get any consistency if it's gonna be like that...

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

That's what I wrote earlier... you are right. "hope he gets rid of them so they won't bother him anymore."

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

As of today, Ernests is on the main draw at Helsinki. No quali to play but Berankis on 1st round.

Hope it will stay that way, which means he is fealing better.

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

sportacentrs.com has information from Ernests "camp" that he won't play this year

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

@ Ilze Well, I presume sportacentrs.com has the good info and Helsinki is way behind with up-date.

It was a short hope of seeing play once more.

Wish he will work hard to get ready in January.

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

I just wrote on my friend's image of the draw on FB "Don't get too excited!"
Sportacentrs is pretty good and we've seen it many times where Ernests was still listed in the draw. It would be nice if he was playing but I don't think that's happening.

A friend of mine showed me an article today.. Anyone who knows latvian better than I do: Did I understand it right that he will probably not play Australian Open and will instead do intensive practising???

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

Yes. It seems he wants to extend his training to prepare for the year instead of heading to Australia in January. EGulbis.tumblr.com wrote up a little bit of a translation of the interviews. He was at an opening of a sports store in Riga and spoke with media.

Quote:
Ernests seems full of optimism. For now, he plans to skip the beginning of the season in Australia and do extended training, maybe even till February. I can’t translate all his words, but he really sounds very reasonable, ready to prove to himself and others that he isn’t done yet.

Ernests says that he really enjoys his time in Latvia. Some random bits from interviews: he prefers Mercedes cars, one of his best feelings is driving without exact destination, just to enjoy the (Jurmala) scenery, he likes Latvian “traditional” food (simple, but not very healthy - potatoes, meat etc.), most recently read author Victor Pelevin (Empire V), one of his quotes, answering about his plans after the end of career: “You think I will get old? No, I will be young forever.”

There was a lottery at the store. Ernests threw his driving license in lottery bowl and happened to be the lucky winner.

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

Thanks, that was an interesting read. He says he was in good physical condition and was aiming for a challenger win but then he got sick in Bratislava, he spent 3 days in bed. He doesn't use antibiotics (prefers not to if I understand correctly) so the doctors told him it would be best to end the season.

He says it's not 100% sure yet but for now the plan is to start practicing soon again and maybe spend 2 months on it and on getting his health in order, and that would mean not going to Australia.

He says he doesn't view this year as a "lost year", he says it's all part of the experience of a professional sportsman and he will learn from his mistakes. He doesn't even think about ending his career at the moment, his goal is still to get to the top 10. He's sure he can do it.

He laments the fact that Latvians don't support him more when he's not playing well. It doesn't bother him much but it sure would be better if people were not so negative. He's not wasting any taxpayers' money so what right people have to complain?

Working with Bresnik is going well and he plans to continue doing so.

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

Thanks a lot

I did not get the thing with Bresnik, when I read it
It is good to hear, that he does not think that negative about his season and that he is keen to continue his season.

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

I'm not watching the match but Ernie just won the first set 6-1. He must have worked really hard in the off-season
