Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

Let's start a new cheering thread. Ernests got into Cincinnati qualifying with his old ranking, and hopefully he doesn't pull out because of his shoulder problems. I haven't seen anything about his shoulder in the Latvian media so I hope it's not a serious injury.

Cincinnati qualifying starts on Saturday.

Paldies Evita! (btw Congratulations to Latvia for the bronze medal in Beach Volleyball. I really enjoyed watching all the games! Good to have some Latvians on my TV ) I too saw Ernests' name on the qualifiers list & I'm hoping he will be there as originally planned. I have tweeted Novotny about it days ago but didn't expect a reply, especially considering there haven't been tweets in some time. I will find out soon enough! *crosses fingers*

Ernests does not use his twitter so it's pretty pointless at the moment.

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

The qualifying draw is out. Ernest's first opponent is Lu and then probably Falla who is playing Ryan Harrison's younger brother in the first round.

I think he has good chances to qualify if he's healthy but you never know, Falla can be a tricky opponent, Ernie has lost to him twice and won 3 times.

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

Ernests is playing against Lu now. He had 3 consecutive BPs at 2-2 but didn't break Then he saved 2 BPs in his own service game. 3-3 now. I thought he would get broken in this game

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

So his ranking will go down to around No.143 next week. He won't make it into the main draw of US Open with such low ranking.
I really want to see him in New York

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

Hey Everyone! If you follow my twitter @CM_TravelingFG You would have seen my tweets from the match. As you can see, it wasn't a good one. I really can't sugar coat it, even though I want to! I spoke to him before the match and asked him how his shoulder was. He was all smiles as he said it feels better. It didn't seem to bother him in the match so I can't use that as an excuse to why he lost. I really don't know what was wrong with him today! It was just error after error! He had some good points but Lu was the solid player out there today. Btw- Bresnik & Papa were not in Cincinnati. I will do a larger write up of the match for a blog & will post it in the future!

Re: Mission Possible: Getting Back to the Top 100

Hi Jade! Edna here. I am sorry that Ernests lost his qualifying match. Maybe he did not think that this was an important one to win? Anyway, do you know when he will play next? Is he going to play at the USO? Thanks for any info you can give me.
