Gulbis. If you keep playing well, I will follow you. I am the classic bandwaggoner.

I'm just sad I didn't have the chance to see him playing.

Congrats for Ernests, he doesn't have a very tough draw so I expect some good results at Queen's :-)

Very happy for the plural Ernest. Ernests :lol: He always seems like twins in one body. :)

this guy is a big dangerman on faster surfaces. i could see him beating anyone on a given day other than possibly the first three players.

It's a Latvian naming convention, I believe :) most of the Latvian male names I've seen so far end in -s, both the first name and surnames (except Juska.)

It's cute. To an American at least, it sounds cute. :)

It's a grammar thing. All male nouns in Latvian end with 's', female nouns and with 'a' or 'e'. I can imagine the name must sound weird to a person not used to such rules :)

I saw some of this match which I forgot to mention in my report, it wasn't a good match, Ernie played just to break once and hold serve, nothing extraordinary. He seemed much bothered with the awful heat, especially later when he was packing racquets to the car. Poor boy, nobody asked him there for an autograph because crowds were at Nole's :sad:

Gulbis is a huge ball whacker. Pretty dangerous player.

:hug: :hug: :hug:

Thanks for the language explanation. I always like to learn more about languages. I don't think it sounds weird. It just sounds cute to this American ear. :) :)

That's interesting about the ending for masculine and feminine nouns. I like it. There's not all that guess work -- like say in German where I'm wrong all the time. :) :) Also interesting that the rule is carried over to proper nouns. :)
