Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

I didn't watched match today but for what you guys wrote, he played very well after last week first round defeat I didn't expect this.
hope he will stay focused and top 100 is not far away

An article about the match in Dutch, and a video on the right side:

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

Wishing him luck against Del Potro - would be great to see him win a big match like that.

It's been a while....

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

Live rankings have him at 117 atm, so even if he loses this round he's still made quite the jump(up 15 spaces). However, I put a rather optimistic bet on him(I still had £4 in my Sky Bet account) so if he wins I'm up £18

(and with a free bet I only lose 50p if he loses)

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

He played pretty well in the 1st set, but unfortunately he lost the match.
His forehand needs some work...and best of luck on his next tournament.

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

I am pleased the way Ernests played today. He fought hard.
He moves much better than before; it shows that he worked hard off court.

His confidence is improving with his winning shots. He held his serves many times to love and he troubled Juan's serves returning well. Some forehands missed cost him the match.
But he is focused and willing to improve.

Already gaining in ranking will encourage him to pursue on a good path.

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

BTW why do you think he's changed his forehand so dramatically? Even in 2010, it looked a lot more 'normal', I guess. It's very different now.

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

I suspect it's an injury of some sort? Or at least it was starting to become one?


That or mentally it was gone after he recovered from his thigh problem that year.

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

I don't think it has anything to do with any possible injuries, it's simply that the old way of hitting wasn't working for him and this feels more natural to him. No doubt it's also a product of working with Bresnik.

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

I found his old forehand more aesthetically pleasing, but if he feels better with his newer FH that's his business .

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

i think he's more confident with this forehand because he is a hard hitter and bigger swing simply forces him to hit forehand technically correct,with shorter swings he was slappin' it more and had poorer control,this way he is forced for more spin but it doesn't reflect on it's effectiveness cause it's still fast,maybe the fastest
